Shrewsbury – There’s just no place like home when a Zone 4 Samko American Legion Championship Series title is on the line, players and coaches of the Shrewsbury Quaranta Post 397 team unanimously agree.
Top-seed Shrewsbury found out that home cooking is what it’s all about as the team defeated visiting second-seed Northbridge, 7-3, on July 19 to capture the coveted championship, its first since 2011.

Northborough – Southborough’s Nolan Kessinger is under no misconception of the challenges yet to come.
The Algonquin Regional High baseball standout has been scouted and recruited to compete for UMass-Amherst, one of the area’s premier collegiate teams, but is fully aware that with a dozen freshmen vying for roster spots, it’s going to take everything in his baseball arsenal to crack the team’s lineup.

Worcester – When it came time to switch uniforms to transform into a Worcester Braveheart this spring, the transition was probably the simplest for Shrewsbury’s Danny Barlok than any other team member.
