NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ Almost everything he witnessed on Monday morning/afternoon, North Smithfield High skipper Jon Leddy liked â€“ a lot.
His starter, junior righty Ian Pascoe, allowed a mere four hits in his five-inning stint as the Northmen remained perfect on the Division II-North campaign with a 4-1 drubbing of always-pesky Tolman.
The tilt took place before perhaps 70 fans basking in the springtime sunshine at the schoolâ€™s diamond.
PROVIDENCE â€“ On a fittingly balmy spring Monday, there were signs of a thaw in Woonsocketâ€™s relationship with its police union as the state-appointed Budget Commission retroactively approved a contract for fiscal 2013 with the International Brotherhood of Police Officers.
