CENTRAL FALLS â Educating âthe whole childâ is an approach that the Segue Institute for Learning was founded upon five years ago. On Thursday, the grassroots charter middle school on Cowden Street was recognized for its practices with the Rhode Island ASCDâs Whole Child Award.
To enlighten the masses regarding the kind of manager and person the Pawtucket Red Sox are getting in Kevin Boles, we engaged in a background check that conjured all sorts of positive vibrations.
In essence, this is a âgetting-to-know-you-betterâ exercise, an opportunity to view through the lens of those who know and understand Boles best and have more insight into his roots than any introductory press conference ever could.
PAWTUCKET â At a time when a host of Bostonâs top prospects are stationed in Double-A and Triple-A, the organization arrived at the decision to provide the PawSox coaching staff with an additional voice.
To be clear, Kevin Boles is Pawtucketâs new manager while fellow Triple-A newcomer Bruce Crabbe is classified as coach, not bench coach. The pair will be joined in the trenches by pitching coach Rich Sauveur and hitting coach Dave Joppie, two holdovers from Gary DiSarcinaâs staff who will be returning to McCoy Stadium in 2014.
