Boston Red Sox name Beyeler first base coach

PAWTUCKET – There really is something to managing the Pawtucket Red Sox.
Taking a page out of the playbook that treated predecessors Ron Johnson and Torey Lovullo quite well, Tuesday saw Arnie Beyeler parlay his successful two-year run as Pawtucket’s skipper into a big-league coaching gig.

When the gun sounded, the Pawtucket resident took off, but doesn’t recall much about what was for her not a race but a quest.

Yes, there is the bigger picture to consider, stemming mainly from what awaits each squad upon the conclusion of Thursday’s contest at Tucker Field. Come the following Tuesday, the Villa Novans and Clippers will engage in a game of high importance – a semifinal-round clash that will take place at the respective home fields and determine the field for the Division II Super Bowl.
