Thought we would never get to the first day in May. Finally, the good weather is on us. If you are a high school baseball fan, you can see a real good match-up tomorrow in Dudley as the two top teams in the area will be playing for bragging rights.The Oxford Pirates will be visiting the Shepherd Hiil campus to take on the Division 1 Rams. Oxford had 8 wins entering the beginning of the week and weather permitting the Pirates (8-2) were slated to host Quaboag on Monday and travel to South on Tuesday. Shepherd Hill (5-4) traveled to Tantasqua on Monday and David Prouty on Wednesday.

While attending a funeral service at St. Louis Church in Webster on Monday, March 10th, I got to see my first ever baseball coach as the celebrant of the Mass. My coach, the Reverend Larry Esposito, was the lead priest for his aunt and Godmother, Margaret Ceppetelli, who passed away the previous Thursday. Esposito recalled many fond memories about his Godmother and the Bigelow Road section of Webster he grew up in. It was one of those moments in life when you say to yourself, ”where has the time gone.”
