Lincoln takes softball showdown from N.K.

May 13, 2013

NORTH KINGSTOWN — The streak is still alive.
After playing five drama-free contests that were decided by nine or more runs, unbeaten Lincoln encountered its toughest test in nearly a month when the Lions trekked down to Ryan Park for a Monday night showdown with second-place North Kingstown.
And while the Lions were able to come away with a 3-2 win, it was far from easy, and it took eight innings and some daring baserunning from Casie Beauchemin to produce the game-winning run.

SCITUATE — Showdowns don’t get any better than this – first place sitting on the line, ace pitchers dueling each other, and extra innings needed to decide the outcome.

EAST PROVIDENCE — An empty lot on Newport Avenue, used mostly as overflow parking for Uncle Tony's Pizza and Pasta restaurant, is serving up some fascinating pieces of history as part of an archaeological dig.

It seems that the front portion of the lot, situated between New Road and Moore Street, was once the East Providence Cemetery. While the burial ground has long been closed and the coffins removed and interred elsewhere, the current owners of the commercially zoned property want to make sure that no remains were left behind.

Locals playing key roles on diamond for La Salle Academy

May 12, 2013

PROVIDENCE – There’s a hearty dose of local talent on this year’s baseball team at La Salle Academy. More precisely, there are five players whose contributions to date represent a key reason why head coach Geoff Marcone’s ball club is positioned near the top of Division I-North.

What makes this particular quintet so distinctive is that each of them brings something different to the field. In Cumberland’s Caleb Gardner and North Smithfield’s C.J. Dandeneau, the Rams are buoyed by a rock-solid 1-2 punch at the front-end of the rotation.

Doreen Costa (R-Dist. 31) told The Call. “Banks shouldn’t be choosing their customers because they’re in a certain kind of business. That’s just stupid.”

Sea Dog Bard is learning new tricks

May 10, 2013

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. – The creed that Daniel Bard swears by nowadays is simple enough.

Jams on the mound are going to arise – but how he reacts and responds to those situations is what matters most. Even the most successful professional pitcher can never be flawless, and therefore he must have an unflappable disposition when confronted with an inevitable first-and-second, no-out jam.

May 9, 2013

Body of Art

May 9, 2013

FOSTER – Anthony Manzo is seated in a vintage leather barber chair with his muscular right arm extended in front of him as tattoo artist Robert Young prepares to go in.
Clean-cut and bookish-looking in his thick-rimmed eyeglasses, Young gives off the demeanor of a doctor as he pauses for a moment, studying Manzo’s arm with quiet intensity. Young’s hands are covered in black rubber gloves, one of which is holding aloft a metallic device that looks like some sort of oversized hypodermic.
