CUMBERLAND â€” In an outstanding display of sportsmanship and community concern, especially for those who have suffered from cancer, Cumberland High and Mount St. Charles conducted a â€śPink Outâ€ť contest at Tucker Field on Tuesday afternoon.
When Clippersâ€™ skipper Marty Crowley opened his heart and invited MSC veteran mentor Cliff Matthews to partake in such a fundraiser last month, the latter jumped at the chance.
The coaches produced an emotional yet fun-loving ceremony prior to the Division I tilt, and five cancer survivors took part in the event.
PAWTUCKET â€” The Alex Wilson who posted a 10.80 ERA in four Grapefruit League outings is a distant memory.
In his place is a reliever who has been a rock solid contributor at the backend of Pawtucketâ€™s bullpen. Entering Tuesdayâ€™s game against Toledo, the right-hander has posted a microscopic 0.71 ERA in 12.1 innings. International League foes are hitting a paltry .143 against Wilson, who is averaging 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings.
PAWTUCKET â€“ The PawSox devoted a portion of Monday afternoonâ€™s pregame experience to bunting â€“ a come one, come all session where attendance is not mandated but rather encouraged.
No, this often forgotten discipline at the minor-league level was done not in direct response to recent events involving the parent club.
