WOONSOCKET – Something typical of the Lincoln Little League All-Stars – keeping alive a tradition that has held true for years now after a win or rare loss – coaches ask their players to hustle to the outfield for a team meeting.
 
Skipper Charlie Hien directed his troops to do the same on Wednesday night, but he seemingly spent more time on his cell phone than lauding his guys for a job well done.
 
“I had to call Anthony Crocenzi,” Hien laughed after his kid brother, Randall Hien, had produced a superb no-hitter as Lincoln rolled to a 10-0 “mercy-rule” victory over Woonsocket in a R.I. District IV Major Division (11-12) Tournament losers’ bracket semifinal before well over 200 fans at Ayotte Field.
 
“He’s one of my assistants, but he had to work; he’s a D.J., and I knew he wanted to hear what happened,” he continued. “I told him his son (Domenic) had homered, but also that Randall had pitched a no-hitter. He was so excited, he was screaming into the phone.”
