PAWTUCKET â€“ Prior to Darlington American's R.I. Little League District II All-Star Major Division (11-12) Tournament opener against Warren on rainy Wednesday, manager Kevin Andella struggled with whom to start on the hill: Co-aces Seth Watson or Chris Pierce.
He chose Watson, and it proved to be an outstanding move. The right-hander baffled the Warren lineup, hurling 3 1/3 innings of no-hit, nine-strikeout ball as DALL captured a satisfying 7-2 victory.
A little of this, a little of that â€¦
Based on recent discussion by the Rhode Island Interscholastic Leagueâ€™s Principalsâ€™ Committee on Athletics, it might be time to chisel in stone the following commandment:
â€śThou shalt not alter the makeup of divisions in non-realignment years.â€ť
The time has come to take a hard line on teams petitioning the PCOA to move up or down in the midst of a given realignment cycle. The 2013-14 school term marks the conclusion of a two-year realignment, a precursor to the presumed changes to the realignment formula that figure to take effect in 2014-15.
