Flag football

new to cambridge

Football is responsible for more injuries than all of the three other major sports combined. Especially, the children who play football also have too many injuries. Thankfully, players in these times have to be removed from games if they suffer a head injury; mainly a concussion.

providing prosthetic devices for those who need them

Mark Zurlo and Tony Chin are running the Boston Marathon to raise money for the Heather Abbott Foundation, which raises money to help amputees thrive in their recovery and return to the life they love. Heather lost a leg in the Marathon bombings, and was fortunate to receive donations for her own prosthetics - something that is very hard for most people to pay for.

Baseball season springs upon Cambridge

One thing I love about my life in Cambridge is I get to be a Little League baseball coach. It’s something I’ve been doing now for 10 years! Living here since I was 13 years old, I’ve had the blessings to be right across the river from Fenway Park, the home of the baseball icon, the Boston Red Sox. Growing up in Cambridge, my friends and I all had favorite players to emulate and cheer on.

Luis Tiant and Carl Yastrzemski were two players that I followed closely.

Carl Yastrzemski-Captain Carl-Yaz-Number Eight

Captain Carl a hero to Cambridge baseball fans

Make no mistake he was the leader of the Boston Red Sox. He did things no other teammate ever did. He only played one year in the minor leagues. He played for Raleigh and batted an unheard of .477. That's very close to one hit for every two at bats.

Looie Looie

Cambridge Little League coach inspired by Red Sox legend Luis Tiant

Looie Looie; who could ever forget that chant. From 35,000 plus fans; Tiant wound up like a whirlwind and jerked his head and fired the baseball home to strike out the batter who had a full count on him with the bases loaded. Fenway exploded with cheers of joy and happiness as Looie won yet another drama- packed close game. Back in the day, it was not unusual for tiant to pitch 160 pitches. Sometimes even more.
