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. Shrewsbury now advances to double-elimination State competition in Norwood on July 23 versus to-be-determined Section 8 champions.

Worcester – It is no secret that the life of a catcher in baseball at any level can be stressful and unheralded at best. A high pain tolerance is a must to fend off the constant nicks, cuts and repeated foul balls clanging off one’s mask. But try to be successful without a solid backstop leading your team. Odds are that it just won’t happen.

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. For those who know Kessinger, admire his determination and talent as well as his leadership skills, it’s nearly impossible to find any skeptics.

Barlok shines for Holy Cross and Bravehearts

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.

That’s because Barlok is a member of the baseball team for the College of the Holy Cross and since the Bravehearts play their home games at Worcester’s Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field, the same venue as the Crusaders, the 6’, 190 lb. right-handed pitcher was already where he needed to be.
