FRONGILLO FETED

Congrats to Haverhill’s Nathan Frongillo, who was named the North Atlantic Conference Baseball Rookie of the Year recently.

The Colby-Sawyer College freshman, who graduated from Whittier Tech, earned All-NAC First-Team status, hitting .396 with 18 RBIs and a .505 slugging percentage.

Offensively, Frongillo ranked in the top 10 of nine different categories and was second in batting average and hits.

Frongillo, an Eagle-Tribune All-Star, started all 33 games for Colby-Sawyer with 13 multi-hit games.

HEALEY MEMORIAL UPDATE

The I’s have been dotted and the T’s have been crossed on the 2014 Joseph F. Healey Memorial Golf Championship, which will be held June 25-28.

Qualifying will be held at the participating clubs, while open qualifiers for unattached players will be held at Windham Country Club on June 7 and at Far Corner Golf Club on June 14.

Folks are asked to contact their club pros if they are interested in playing.

Remember, the Healey opens on June 25 at Atkinson CC. It moves to Merrimack Valley Golf Club for Round 2 on June 26. The final is Saturday, June 28 at Renaissance Country Club in Haverhill.

TIRED OF HOMER RADIO

Is there a sports radio show out there where the hosts aren’t diehard Bruins’ fans?

I’ve tried to listen to Bruins talk on the radio since the playoffs began but the lack of an impartial observer clearly makes it difficult.

“The Canadiens have gotten all the calls.”

“Subban cheapshotted Chara and it was a matching penalty.”

And these are from the hosts.

How quickly these people forget the Detroit series turning on a 5-on-3 Bruins power play, with the game-changing goal a result of an uncalled interference penalty on the Bruins that the officials seemingly ignore.

Chara wasn’t cheapshotted by Subban. It was retaliation for a vicious slash.

I like the B’s as much as the next guy, but man Boston fans are tough to deal with.
