McGair: Pawtucket native Williams treasures time with new Hall of Fame member Barry Larkin; what Daniel Bard needs to do in order to return to Boston

July 22, 2012

July 22, 2012

He had every reason, as his crew entered the top half of the sixth frame trailing 11-4, but manufactured five runs while causing their opponent's coaching staff fits.

Barrington blasts Burrillville in L.L. tourney opener

July 21, 2012

LINCOLN — Excepting the District IV championship game, a 1-0 triumph over Lincoln last Monday, the Burrillville All-Stars had bulled its way through the tourney, outscoring their opponents by 60-plus runs while posting a perfect 6-0 record.
