May 17, 2014

WOONSOCKET — As she watched one classmate after another gleefully boast about their college plans, Briana Castro kept wondering when exactly the ship she desired was going to drop anchor.

A senior softball and hockey standout at Mount St. Charles, Castro would seek out her physics teacher, Kristen Couture, for counsel and reassurance that everything would work out. She would also keep repeating in her mind a saying from her parents, Fabio and Wendy: “If it’s meant to be, then clearly it’s meant to be.”

PawSox knuckleball pitcher Wright working his way back from sports hernia surgery

May 9, 2014

PAWTUCKET — As a knuckleball pitcher, Steven Wright can get loose in a hurry.

As a 29-year-old man who is three months removed from undergoing surgery to repair a sports hernia, the importance of taking things slow and steady cannot be understated.

From his vantage point, Wright earnestly believes that he’s thriving on this unconventional and demanding comeback trail. The Red Sox right-hander is not rehabbing a bum shoulder or a tender elbow. In effect, he had to re-train the muscles in the lower half of his body following a lengthy stretch of inactivity.
