High school baseball | Players, coaches forced to get creative with indoor workouts

Paul Murphy had spent over a quarter-century as a Cumberland High baseball coach, the last 17 at the helm, and he admits he’s never seen a winter quite like this one.

Now in his first “spring” as Woonsocket High’s varsity mentor, Murphy hasn’t had the opportunity to conduct practice sessions at his new Renaud Field home, the reason being most of the infield dirt and outfield grass remains blanketed with some of the record-breaking snow accumulations inundating the state the past two-plus months.

The Midwest Regional final was held at Quickens Loan Arena this year. The undefeated Kentucky Wildcats came in as heavy favorites to move on to the Final Four in Indianapolis.
