Sandberg discusses today's top second basemen

July 18, 2011

As a Hall of Fame second baseman blessed with the ability to influence the game's outcome with his bat and glove, Ryne Sandberg appreciates the intangibles that present day second sackers Dustin Pedroia and Robinson Cano bring to the ballpark.
To Sandberg, Lehigh Valley’s first-year manager, Pedroia and Cano are chips off the old block. For good measure, so is Chase Utley, who unlike Pedroia and Cano operates outside of the A.L. East caldron.

Military Page letter comes from the Netherlands

July 17, 2011

The Military Page went global this week with the receipt of a letter from Simon Schuurman, a resident of the Netherlands who adopts graves of fallen soldiers and tries to gather information about the lives of American soldiers who died during World War II.
“I have always been interested in the second World War,” Schuurman wrote. “We want to be able to honor the people who liberated Europe. I adopted five graves at two different cemeteries – one in Ardennes (France) and another in Henri-Chapelle in Belgium. One of these graves is from Private Joseph J. Czernia of the U.S. Army.

Crawford hitless, speechless after game

July 16, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The second and final game of Carl Crawford’s rehab assignment with the Pawtucket Red Sox left much to be desired.
An 0-for-3 showing at the plate and no action in left field in the PawSox’s 11-8 loss to the Durham Bulls on Saturday at McCoy Stadium wasn’t the evening Crawford envisioned before rejoining the Boston Red Sox. Nonetheless, the left fielder departed Pawtucket with at least one reason for optimism: a healthy left hamstring.

City plays hard ball with young litter bugs, vandals

July 16, 2011

Fed up with complaints about litter and vandalism at some of the local recreational areas, city officials have taken to shutting off access temporarily as a warning to offenders to clean up their act.
Most recently, city workers placed a padlock on the gate to the basketball courts at the Thomas J. Duffy Sports Complex on Cleveland Street along with a sign saying that the complex was closed due to problems with litter and vandalism.
