McGair: Lars Anderson finally gets a change of scenery

July 31, 2012

July 31, 2012

PAWTUCKET – It’s Sunday morning in the PawSox clubhouse, a time of day when players and coaches alike seek to shake the sleep out of their eyes in preparation for that day’s 1:05 first pitch.
Everyone has their own routine. For some, the crossword puzzle beckons. Others, a trip to the indoor hitting cage is imperative.

PawSox's Mock stays true to his spiritual side

July 31, 2012

PAWTUCKET — From Garrett Mock’s vantage point, his capacity – relief pitcher for the Pawtucket Red Sox – represents only the tip of iceberg regarding exactly who he is.

Nowadays when he takes the mound, Mock isn’t just seeking to get the opposition out; he aims to continue to stay true to his spiritual side that he first tapped as a teenager growing up in Houston, Texas.
