PC's Ledo declares for NBA Draft; Shammgod, Hart 'wish him the best'

April 9, 2013

PROVIDENCE – Through all the twists and turns on his basketball journey, Ricky Ledo never once lost sight of what he interpreted to be the brass ring.
Mentioning Ledo and the NBA in the same sentence is a parlor game that’s been en vogue for quite some time. The Providence native always seemed to have a twinkle in his eye when it came to pro hoops – his tunnel vision so clairvoyant that the only matter left to itemize was to wait for Declaration Day.

This one's for Skee: Burrillville tops Mount, 4-3

April 9, 2013

BURRILLVILLE — Senior captain Zach LaFleur had just confessed to his “new” head coach, Peter Berthelette, that he needed his help with the bat after striking out twice in his final two at-bats Tuesday afternoon.
But when asked what Burrillville High’s stellar 4-3 victory over Mount St. Charles in both teams’ Division II-North season opener meant to him, LaFleur responded immediately and with feeling.

Errors plague Villa Novans in season-opening defeat

April 8, 2013

WOONSOCKET — In a 9-0 Injury Fund romp at Smithfield on Saturday, Woonsocket High assembled quite the defensive display, and head coach John Marsella expected the same from his troops in the Division I-North season opener at Barry Field 48 hours later.
Unfortunately for the Villa Novans, they committed a whopping seven miscues on an unseasonably warm Monday afternoon and suffered a 6-5 loss to Cranston East before approximately 75 fans.

Sox run over RailRiders, 6-2, complete sweep

April 8, 2013

MOOSIC, Penn. — Terry Doyle admits that the Pawtucket Red Sox were playing with house money.
With the PawSox having won the first three games against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the main question heading into Sunday’s series finale was whether the RailRiders could save face and avoid falling victim to a season-opening four-game sweep at PNC Field.

Cauton flag out for PawSox' De La Rosa; Might Big Papi be part of McCoy opener festivities?

April 7, 2013

MOOSIC, Pa. – It appears the Red Sox are electing to take a cautious approach with pitcher Rubby De La Rosa.
The fifth member of Pawtucket’s starting rotation will make his first start of the season at Lehigh Valley on Monday night. Unlike the team’s other four starters, all of whom have thrown around 85 pitches, De La Rosa will be limited to about 50 pitches. Graham Godfrey, who tossed two innings in Thursday’s season opener, is expected to serve as backup.
“Just taking it easy on him,” said PawSox pitching coach Rich Sauveur about De La Rosa. “No rush.”

In eyes of PawSox hitting coach, Jackie Bradley ahead of the curve

April 7, 2013

MOOSIC, Pa. – The book on Jackie Bradley Jr. is that he possesses a keen eye at the plate and is a very disciplined hitter. In his first week with the Boston Red Sox, the highly-touted outfielder did little to sway how he’s perceived.
Entering Sunday’s road-trip finale in Toronto, Bradley had seen 92 total pitches in five games. The 18.4 pitches-per-game average furthers the belief that despite beginning just his second full pro season, the 22-year-old already has a thorough understanding of what is a strike and what isn’t.

Is 'Villa Novan Pride' on the slide?

April 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Not very long ago, Woonsocket High School’s athletic department was a source of great pride, with a tradition of team success being carried over from one season to the next.

Accompanying that tradition were good vibes extending throughout the student body and the whole community. To that end, the school’s athletic director and No. 1 supporter vividly remembers a January 2008 boys’ basketball game involving the hometown entry and perennial state power Bishop Hendricken at Savaria Gymnasium.

DiSarcina credits post-playing career duties in preparing him to manage PawSox; Mauro Gomez still in baseball limbo

April 5, 2013

MOOSIC, Pa. – There are baseball lifers, and then there’s someone like Gary DiSarcina.
In short, the 45-year-old is a man who’s worn many hats since retiring 11 years go. He’s enjoyed successful stints in three totally different realms with all roads leading back to the game that saw him carve out a 12-year major-league career. Thanks to experiencing life as a manager, television analyst and trusted front-office contributor, DiSarcina can speak comfortably on a number of topics.

Area coaches angered by actions of ex-Rutgers coach

April 3, 2013

PAWTUCKET – In the wake of Rutgers University's Wednesday afternoon firing of men's basketball coach Mike Rice for physically and orally abusing his players, some local – and legendary – high school coaches/athletic directors chose to “weigh in” on the subject.
Rice's dismissal came at the helm of a video that news outlets nationwide carried throughout the afternoon and evening hours. It showed numerous clips of Rice rifling basketballs at players' backs, legs, etc., grabbing them by their jerseys and shoving them; he also could be heard screaming obscenities and homosexual slurs at them.
