No contest as softball Lions belt Clippers

April 11, 2012

CUMBERLAND — The softball seasons have passed and the names have come and gone, but one thing you could always count on year after year any time Lincoln and Cumberland played each other was a spirited, competitive duel -- a showdown that was usually going to be decided by one or two runs.

Miscues come back to haunt Shea in loss to Wheeler

April 11, 2012

PAWTUCKET — It's hard to win when you make four errors.
Just ask Shea High head coach Dino Campopiano, whose club's mistake-prone ways allowed Wheeler School to escape Max Read Field with a 5-1 Division II-Central victory on Wednesday afternoon.
Still, fair is fair. John Snider, the Warriors' senior righty from Cumberland, proved to be stellar on the hill, yielding only five hits and three walks while fanning a whopping dozen (though he did toss a trio of wild pitches). He also helped himself with the bat, going 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored.

PawSox players weigh in on Guillen's comments

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Tuesday morning saw a small group of PawSox players huddle around the clubhouse television as a contrite Ozzie Guillen attempted to move past the uproar he caused over supportive remarks the Miami Marlins manager made in reference to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
