Stenovitch, a former star runner for St. Raphael Academy in the early 1990s, has decided on a new cause for this Sunday’s race.
And like the previous one, this one truly made sense.

April 4, 2011

PAWTUCKET -- It seems like every person who lived through World War II has a story to tell. The war impacted everyone in the country back in the 1940s.

Baseball season is a long haul, lasting from March 31 (this year’s Opening Day) through late October. Smart baseball fans just sit back and relax, knowing that players and teams will eventually achieve their normal production goals as the games pile up.
