Errors hurt Upper Deck in 7-2 loss to N.P. Post 29

June 22, 2013

Contributing writer
NORTH PROVIDENCE — At such an early hour, it seemed like many of the players were sleepwalking during Saturday morning’s game between Upper Deck Post 86/14 and the North Providence Post 29 Senators at North Providence High.
Between Post 86/14 and the Post 29 Senators, the two teams combined for 11 walks and four errors in the field. However, despite the sloppy play, one team came away the winner, and it was the Senators who cruised to their second consecutive victory over Post 86/14 in convincing fashion, 7-2.

Red Sox think top prospect Bogaerts catches on fast

June 21, 2013

PAWTUCKET -- On a late March day in Fort Myers, Fla., Xander Bogaerts could have accepted what the lineup card stipulated and left it at that.

The Red Sox prospect and now the newest member of the PawSox, however, was comfortable enough in his own skin to approach the powers-that-be and show his eagerness and enthusiasm for the game he is paid to play.

According to one staff member, the sequence helped cast the player in a whole new light.

Local flavor at Northeast Amateur

June 20, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE — Bobby Leopold would have loved to compete in more amateur tourneys this spring, but just couldn't find the time.
On December 10, he and his wife, Taylor, became proud new parents of Grayson Robert, now a bouncing six-month-old boy, so – naturally – most of his days, and of course nights, are devoted to his baby and work.

Cumberland's Randall shoots 70 on Day 1 of Northeast Amateur

June 19, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE – Regrets? Every golfer has some upon the round’s conclusion.

The ones that Jamison Randall expressed followed his one-over 70 performance on Day 1 of the Northeast Amateur Invitational didn’t equate to the Cumberland lad singing the blues. Had the golf gods been kinder, perhaps Randall’s Wednesday score would have been closer to the low number Brazil’s Rafael Becker posted – a minus-seven 62 that featured an eye-popping eight birdies.

PawSox' DiSarcina: Honesty’s best policy with player moves

June 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Never has a trip to the principal’s office been more soothing and reassuring.

Score one for PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina for putting out the fire before it engulfed the clubhouse he oversees. There was a delicate situation that needed to be addressed with several Pawtucket players, and DiSarcina handled every last conversation with aplomb.

“That’s what the job of a manager is. You have to manage those people,” stated DiSarcina matter-of-factly.

LINCOLN – Casie Beauchemin, Lincoln High's heralded junior right fielder, sat back on a bench in front of the school early Wednesday afternoon trying to convey how incredible it felt to be a part of a team that not only captured two consecutive state Division I titles, but did so with an unblemished 43-0 mark.

Cumberland's Randall ready to tackle links at Northeast Amateur

June 18, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE – How Jamison Randall landed a coveted spot in this week’s Northeast Amateur Invitational can be traced back to last summer’s noteworthy accomplishment on the links.

For the Cumberland High alumnus and junior-to-be at Virginia’s Old Dominion University, winning the R.I. Stroke Play Championship was akin to feasting one’s eyes on a golden ticket after opening a Wonka bar.

McGair: Carbo unloads on PED use in baseball

June 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Bernie Carbo assumed custody of his grandson when he was two. This same lad has matured into a 14-year-old with big-league hopes, no doubt fueled by a grandfather who authored one of the most memorable home runs in Red Sox lore.

RIIL Principals’ Committee on Athletics talks re-alignment

June 17, 2013

PROVIDENCE – While far from finalized, several realignment proposals were shared and discussed amongst the Rhode Island Interscholastic League’s Principals’ Committee on Athletics Monday afternoon.

Speaking on behalf of the realignment committee, Prout Athletic Director Mike Traficante presented modifications to the formula that has been the determining factor in placing teams in corresponding divisions.

Perfect again: Lions repeat as Div. I softball champs

June 16, 2013

PROVIDENCE – To Emily Bouthillette, a whack to the face never felt so good.
Minutes after Lincoln High had clinched an easier-than-anticipated 5-1 victory over Coventry to claim its second straight R.I. Division I Tournament title on Sunday afternoon, Bouthillette's fellow senior tri-captain, Lindsay Mayer, accepted the state championship plaque.
When Mayer heard fans screaming from the third-base gate to spin and hoist it – of course for photos – she accidentally struck her teammate, and immediately responded, “Em, I'm so sorry!
