Sports in a minute

GOLDSMITH TO MARINERS

Last April, there was a sports in a minute note mentioned that seven former Pawtucket Red Sox radio announcers have gone on to have careers in either the major leagues, NFL or NBA.

Now make it eight.

Aaron Goldsmith, who spent the past year as the PawSox announcer and who previously announced game in the Cape Cod Baseball League and for the Portland Sea Dogs, recently accepted a job as a radio announcer for the Seattle Mariners.

Other PawSox announcers who have made it big are Andy Freed (Tampa Bay Rays announcer), Don Orsillo (Boston Red Sox announcer), Dan Hoard (Cincinnati Bengals announcer), Dave Jageler (Washington Nationals announcer), Dave Flemming (San Francisco Giants announcer), Gary Cohen (New York Mets announcer) and Matt Pinto (Oklahoma City Thunder).

KREIDER’S PLAYOFF EXPERIENCE

Boxford native and Phillips Academy graduate Chris Kreider received a little over 10 minutes of ice time during the New York Rangers’ season opener against the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

After winning a national title with Boston College last year, Kreider joined the Rangers for the playoffs, scoring five goals and adding two assists in 18 games.

Now, he is experiencing his first regular-season action. So how did receiving playoff time help him?

“It was eye-opening,” Kreider told The Eagle-Tribune. “I was able to get a taste of what it takes to compete at that level. Those guys were coming off an 82-game schedule and they were able to still raise their play to another level. You learn so much about pro hockey in such a short time period. I was just trying to be a sponge and take in everything I could. I like to think I was able to learn a lot.”

TEAM FREDERICKS

Elise and Michelle Fredericks were both multi-event placers for Timberlane in a weekend multi-team meet. Melissa Page won the 100 butterfly. For the boys, Harry Shields, Madison DiCarlo, Anthony Trajlinek and Stephen Morin shined in the 200 medley relay.
