DOYLE AND POSEY

Former Salem High and Boston College star pitcher Terry Doyle, who recently signed a minor league deal with the Boston Red Sox, used play with NL MVP catcher Buster Posey on the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox of the Cape Cod Baseball League.

“My first summer I played with him he was our starting shortstop,” Doyle said. “He was an all-league shortstop and then the next year he was our catcher and an all-league catcher. He’s a great guy. He really, really works hard. The numbers he’s putting up and the accolades he’s getting, he’s earned every bit of it.”

Doyle and Posey were two of 19 players from the 2007 Cape Cod League champion Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox chosen in the 2008 MLB draft.

Another note: Doyle played on the same team with former Red Sox Wily Mo Pena in Japan this past summer.

Andover grad Nicole Boudreau added nine points and six rebounds.

CELTICS FORWARD FINED

Boston Celtics forward Chris Wilcox was fined $25,000 yesterday for making an obscene gesture to the crowd in Philadelphia on Friday night when the Kiss Cam put the spotlight on both him and teammate Jared Sullinger.

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
