Author delivers big hit with 'Bottom of the 33rd'

April 17, 2011

PAWTUCKET — While this is not a book review of Dan Barry’s “Bottom of the 33rd,” the goal here is to lend depth behind the 255-page opus currently available.
This is about reenacting the journey Barry took in taking one particular subject and spinning it into a finished product. Reliving the process Barry undertook – from countless interviews to visiting the archives at The Pawtucket Times – is almost as fascinating as the final product itself because of the different angles he explores.

Lincoln steals five bases in win over Smithfield

April 14, 2011

SMITHFIELD – Don’t tell Lincoln head coach Ed Hunt that the stolen base isn’t a handy tool.
The Lions qualify as a running bunch, witnessed by the five bags they swiped Thursday in a 9-1 win over Smithfield.
