NASHUA – Ben Robinson did not want to see Thursday’s game go into extra innings, so when he saw Lebanon Post 22 coach Rob Woodward call for a suicide squeeze, he was prepared to execute it.
The New Hampshire American Legion Senior baseball tournament begins this week, and given its recent history, it would be a surprise if Rochester Post 7 defends its title.
The early District A games scheduled for Sunday are in the books and the eight-team field for the American Legion Senior state tournament is a little clearer.
Concord Post 21 improved to 10-7 with a 5-0 win over Keene Post 4, while Laconia Post 1 knocked off Lebanon Post 22 7-6 in 10 innings to move to 11-7 and into a tie with Bedford Post 54 and Milford Post 23.
There are six games still left to be completed Sunday in the American Legion Senior baseball regular season, but only three of those have tournament implications.
BEDFORD – Concord Post 21 will travel quite a bit this weekend in its quest for a spot in the New Hampshire American Legion Senior baseball tournament.
MILFORD – Going into the top of the ninth inning of a 1-1 ballgame, Lenny Pappas just wanted to see his guys be aggressive.
Thunderstorms wiped out Tuesday’s schedule, and rain in Southern New Hampshire caused the postponement of some of Wednesday’s games, meaning the regular season will now stretch into Sunday.
With under a week to go in the regular season of American Legion Senior baseball, only one of the eight spots in the state tournament has been claimed, and as many as 13 teams are still alive for the others.
Note: On June 10, the Bedford High School boys lacrosse team won its third straight Division II championship – and 61st consecutive game – by beating Goffstown 12-10. Bedford head coach Matt Guerard and players Dan Colella, Sam Stanton and Dakota Clark got together recently to discuss their season and the winning streak.
Dan Colella doesn’t remember too many specifics from his sophomore year of lacrosse at Bedford High School.
MILFORD - Dave Flurey had nothing extraordinary to say to Nolan Flynn when the Sweeney Post 2 coach went to the mound to talk to his pitcher during the fourth inning of Monday’s game.
