1952Ned Crow­ley of Berke­ley be­came the first player to cap­ture con­sec­u­tive bat­ting crowns in the Black­stone Val­ley Am­a­teur Base­ball League with a mark of .509, but did not equal his .529 mark of last sea­son. Leo La­bossiere, Berke­ley’s diminu­tive sec­ond base­man, had a bet­ter bat­ting av­er­age, hit­ting a lusty .542, but played in four fewer games than Crow­ley. Sev­eral play­ers who hit over .400 in­clude Art Bon­nani (.460), Joe Di Bi­ase (.442) and Bill Del Vec­chio (.449) all of Al’s Ty­dol, while Crow­ley’s team­mates Fred Solty (.406) and Al Jack­son (.415) were the other se­lect cir­cle hit­ters.

1962The Cen­tral Falls Town­ies, paced by Stan Koza’s touch­down jaunts of 35 and 40 yards, con­tin­ued their pow­er­house play by blast­ing the Providence Pa­tri­ots 33-0 in a R. I. Pre-Teen Foot­ball League romp. Adding to the touch­down pa­rade were Roland Gagnon on a seven-yard run, Bob Sal­is­bury on a one­yard plunge and Ken Moore on a 29-yard re­verse. Jimmy Coyle, Russ Brooks, Ron Charette and Norm Brule were out­stand­ing on de­fense for the un­beaten (4-0) CF eleven.
