PROVIDENCE â€” To Ryan Kalish, the time and sweat heâ€™s putting in this offseason has a rewarding vibe surrounding it â€“ the kind that provides the 24-year-old Red Sox outfielder with the sort of reassurance that heâ€™ll be ready to answer the bell come spring training.
At first blush, the task of Cumberland and Woonsocket laying the groundwork for the seasonâ€™s biggest game doesnâ€™t seem entirely daunting â€“ especially since weâ€™re referencing two squads that staged a gridiron tussle merely eight days ago.
With only three days between the semifinals and Sundayâ€™s Division II Super Bowl, the art of familiarity helps to take a little strain off of the preparation process. Time has become a valuable commodity, and if youâ€™re going to step into the ring of fire, what better opponent to have than someone where introductions are not required?
