PAWTUCKET â€” Itâ€™s common to see a number of Pawtucket Red Sox hitters shuffle in and out of the indoor batting tunnel â€“ located a stoneâ€™s throw away from the home clubhouse at McCoy Stadium â€“ prior to heading outside for more hitting and on-field work.
This time-tested practice was once again on full display Thursday afternoon, as Bryce Brentz, Alex Hassan, and others chose to take full advantage of the early work services offered by hitting coach Dave Joppie. Daniel Nava was also among the participants, which wasnâ€™t at all shocking.
WOONSOCKET â€” This type of thing doesnâ€™t happen often to â€“ or at â€“ Mount St. Charles.
Josh Dâ€™Abateâ€™s varsity volleyball squad ran into a combination steamroller/race car in experienced North Kingstown High foe on Thursday night, and it suffered the consequences with a 3-1 loss.
The unbeaten Skippers played at the net with reckless abandon, blocked most of the Mountiesâ€™ kill tries, served well and bused away from the MSC gym with a most satisfying 25-20, 25-15, 25-11 Division I crossover sweep.
