Middlebrooks supplies plenty of fireworks as PawSox out-slug RailRiders

July 3, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Where there’s a will, there’s a … possible return to the Boston Red Sox?

While it should be noted that Will Middlebrooks entered Pawtucket’s record books on Wednesday night, there is a much bigger picture to consider. The sledgehammer he took to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s pitching staff came with a note attached: I’m getting close.

American League scout weighs in on PawSox

July 1, 2013

PAWTUCKET — On one hand, the phrase “birds of a feather flock together” seems applicable to the scouting contingent that showed up in droves last weekend at McCoy Stadium.
The section behind home plate became known as an open-air baseball boardroom; one PawSox game featured as many as nine scouts. Remember, the July 31 non-waiver deadline is not that far off – four weeks from Wednesday to be exact.

Evan's Crew gets ready for Pan-Mass Challenge

June 30, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Tim Mandeville recalls watching his boy pursue his passions so well it hurts.
More often than not, when he looks outside his home, he still pictures young Evan playing baseball with his best friend, Riley Crozier, in the back yard. He rewinds that and other memorable videos in his mind time after time.

Burrillville runs away with it, tops Bernon 13-6

June 29, 2013

BURRILLVILLE -- During the regular season, Burrillville Little League doesn’t allow its pitchers to throw curveballs, and that remains baffling to All-Stars’ skipper Bob Gelinas.

Still, he took great measures to prepare his mound staff for the start of the R.I. District IV Major Division (11-12) All-Star Tournament at Sherman Park’s Rymanski Field on Saturday afternoon.

McGair: RIIL division alignment shouldn't send mixed messages

June 28, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

Based on recent discussion by the Rhode Island Interscholastic League’s Principals’ Committee on Athletics, it might be time to chisel in stone the following commandment:

“Thou shalt not alter the makeup of divisions in non-realignment years.”

The time has come to take a hard line on teams petitioning the PCOA to move up or down in the midst of a given realignment cycle. The 2013-14 school term marks the conclusion of a two-year realignment, a precursor to the presumed changes to the realignment formula that figure to take effect in 2014-15.

Lending a helping hand: Middlebrooks shows PawSox SS Bogaerts the ropes at third base

June 27, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Xander Bogaerts took groundballs at McCoy Stadium on Thursday afternoon, a pregame ritual that the promising shortstop has down to a science.
This particular day was different. Not only was Bogaerts taking grounders at third base, but – as an added bonus – he was the under the tutelage of someone who knows a thing or two about manning the hot corner.

Cumberland gets an 'A' for big softball win over N.S.

June 26, 2013

CUMBERLAND — The names have changed, but the results have stayed the same.
A year after cruising through the District IV ranks, as well as the best teams the rest of Rhode Island had to offer, en route to its second straight Major Division state championship, Cumberland’s formidable ‘A’ team picked up where it left off by earning its third mercy-rule victory in as many games before a large gathering at Diamond Hill Park.

Providence's Ledo eyes tonight's NBA Draft

Seth Cohen is proud of the business-like fashion that his client conducted himself in during arguably the most important stretch of basketball in his young life.

Middlebrooks doesn’t plan to stay with PawSox for long

June 26, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Will Middlebrooks spoke so softly that it felt as if the PawSox clubhouse had been transformed into a church.

The struggling third baseman didn’t attempt to mask his disappointment regarding a season that has hardly gone according to plan. For the moment, finding a silver lining in the fact that he was sent down is an impossible endeavor. It probably didn’t ease Middlebrooks’ frustration that Wednesday’s Red Sox-Rockies’ game was being featured on the clubhouse’s main television.

Stricker, Van Pelt capture CVS Caremark Charity Classic title in record-breaking fashion

June 25, 2013

BARRINGTON – Local legend Billy Andrade knew he and playing partner Bill Haas slowly had been creeping up the leaderboard at this 15th annual CVS Caremark Charity Classic on humid Tuesday, but never knew just how close they were to the front-runners, the duo of Steve Stricker and Bo Van Pelt.
When Haas knocked down a 10-foot birdie putt on the 452-yard, par-four 13th to move he and Andrade to 19-under, the board just behind the green indicated they had sliced the gap to a mere shot.
