PAWTUCKET --- You can tell a business is booming when after three months in operation, the owners have been so busy that they havenât found the time to plan a Grand Opening ceremony.
Thatâs been the case with the ownership group of DH Hitting, LLC, a baseball and softball indoor training facility on 70 Vineyard St. in Pawtucket that opened its doors last Nov. 16 and hasnât slowed down since the very first swings were taken in their batting tunnels.
What is one telltale sign that an organization is doing well from a financial standpoint? Answer: When a revenue-sharing plan is met with a ringing endorsement by the powers-that-be.
âWeâre all in this together,â is the phrase Tom Mezzanotte, executive director of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League, used shortly the approval of a revenue-sharing program at the March 18 Principalsâ Committee on Athletics meeting. The unanimous vote (10-0) green lights the distribution of profits that are leftover once all the RIILâs expenses are all squared away to the 55 member high schools.
