Elizabeth Beisel still doesn’t see herself as 'big deal'

August 15, 2012

PAWTUCKET – The Elizabeth Beisel Welcome Home Tour made a stop at McCoy Stadium Wednesday evening, as the North Kingstown native and Olympic medalist threw out the first pitch and signed autographs at the ballpark’s Cox Fan Center.
Standing on the field in her Team USA jacket and a PawSox cap, Beisel was presented a Pawtucket team jacket by General Manager Lou Schweichheimer and infielder Tony Thomas, who took the occasion to tweet the following after catching the ceremonial toss: “Not a bad arm for a swimmer; thanks for keeping it close so I could catch it!”

Sauveur provided words of reassurance on Wednesday afternoon, one day after Bard had a devil of a time locating the strike zone. You probably know the grizzly numbers by now, but here they are again: On his way to recording one out Tuesday night against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Bard walked four and allowed two runs. Just 10 of the 27 pitches he recorded were strikes.

On Tuesday morning, the unassuming, modest 18-year-old loaded his belongings into his car and trekked by his lonesome to New Jersey. His wants: Not only to begin his odyssey at Bergen Community College (he plans on becoming a veterinary technician), but also follow his dream of playing junior hockey for the New Jersey Renegades.
