Dunham takes gold

Dave Dunham of Bradford must be in good health. The weekend before last, he took two gold medals and a silver medal at the U.S. Mountain running championships at Mount Cranmore in North Conway. He finished in 25th place overall, taking first in his age group (45-49), and also got gold as a member of the masters (40-49) team. The silver was as a member of the Open team for the Central Mass Striders.

Major league BR coach

One of the most experienced baseball men in the Intertown Babe Ruth League this summer was only an assistant coach. That would be former major league player Jerry Moses, who began his career with the red Sox.

Moses was an assistant for the Ipswich 13-14 team that did not have a lot of success. Although he was not extremely vocal, the Ipswich players and other coaches certainly paid attention when he spoke.

In high school, Moses was an outstanding football player and he declined several football scholarship offers from SEC schools to sign with the Sox. A 1970 All-Star catcher, he was the youngest Red Sox to hit a home run, when he was 18. He blasted one off Jim “Mudcat” Grant.

Crimmin’s wise choice

The last-minute decision by Paige Crimmin not to try swimming across the English Channel, because of lingering flu symptoms and the extremely cold water, proved to be a wise one.

In the same week when she had been planning the swim, a 34-year-old British swimmer, Susan Taylor, died from the elements after collapsing less than a mile from completing the swim despite being in terrific shape.

“That could have been me,” said Crimmin, who returned to New Zealand, where she is studying and working, after taking a side trip to Thailand for some mountain biking.
