I know this is a repost of sorts but about a week ago I asked you the reader what the phrase “Raider Pride” means to you, and having not gotten any responses I thought I would try to one more time, so please comment with your thoughts!
Today marked the start of the first full week of the summer travel season and several teams were in action including at the ever popular Reidy Field. Now a disclaimer on these recaps, is that they may not be posted every day this summer, as not a lot of the scores are posted to the little league website, however since I announce games during the summer at Reidy I will give you the results of those games including tonight’s as much as possible, and recaps should be more frequent once Williamsport starts. Anyway here’s tonight’s result!
Result for 6-27-16
Newton 10 U10 North Lee 4

I had the chance this afternoon to head down to Monster Fun Day in Wellesley and I’ll tell you it was awesome. Kudos to the Red Sox on a well run event, with the highlight being getting an autograph and picture taken with Jason Varitek. Here are some photos from the event.
So today I asked the question what is the youngest age of a Wellesley summer baseball travel team and the answer is… 8, that’s right summer travel ball goes from 8 all the way to 12! Congratulations to Alex Luzaitis who answered correctly and wins the Dunkin Gift Card, enjoy!
It’s the first official Friday of summer, and that means it’s time once again for another exciting edition of Raider Friday Trivia as once again a Dunkin Donuts giftcard is on the line so get those answers in! Today’s question is… what is the youngest age group of the Wellesley Little League summer travel baseball program? Answer later tonight!
