Maybe Saturday’s Class L final against East Lyme at 7 p.m. is North Haven coach Bob DeMayo’s final game. In his 57th season coaching the Indians, rumors have swirled that the coach will call it a career. He’s not even sure. “We’ll see,” he said. DeMayo said he has not thought about it much recently […]

Baseball: Can someone tell us how this Nolan Cloutier shot wasn’t a Sheehan home run?

The look on his face says Sheehan's Nolan Cloutier can't believe he was robbed of a home run in the Class M title game... not that it mattered.

In the top of the third inning of the Class M baseball championship, something extraordinary happened that — had it actually affected the outcome of the game — might have gone down as one of the worst plays in Wallingford sports history. Nolan Cloutier (whose father, Bill, is a sports writer and editor for us […]

Class L Baseball: East Lyme tags Rossomando, holds off Bunnell to reach title game

MIDDLETOWN >> Two runs had already crossed the plate when the dangerous Justin Lasko stepped into the batter’s box. The rather sizeable Bunnell rooting section which made its way to Palmer Field for Wednesday’s Class L semifinal was feeling pretty good about things, even though the Bulldogs were trailing by a run and down to their […]
