August 7, 2015

PAWTUCKET – After celebrating two phenomenal International League Governors' Cup championships over the previous three years, the Pawtucket Red Sox won't come close this summer. They bid adieu to a possible playoff berth several weeks ago.

American Legion Baseball | OFF TO A FLYING START: Upper Deck brings its 'A' game in Northeast Regional opener

August 5, 2015

BRISTOL, Conn. – If Ryan O’Neill had any concern prior to hurling in Upper Deck Post 86/14’s opener of the Northeast Regional American Legion Tournament on Wednesday afternoon, it didn’t come from a case of nerves.

“The fact we hadn’t seen them (that is, Maine state champion Bangor Comrades) all season, that’s what bothered me, if anything,” he said. “Three was no familiarity there because we hadn’t faced them.”

PAWTUCKET – The weekend news of Larry Lucchino stepping down as president and CEO of the Boston Red Sox by year’s end won’t change his role with the Pawtucket Red Sox.
