Barnstable is currently training six recruits to work as lifeguards at the town’s beaches this season. Recreation Director Patti Machado is praying they all pass.

Cape Cod Baseball League roundup: Bourne’s 14-hit day leads it past Brewster for 2nd win

Where Bourne’s first win, 3-0 against Hyannis on Sunday, leaned on pitching to hold off opposing bats for the shutout, its successes Monday came from the batter’s box. Eight different Braves recorded a hit Monday as Bourne (2-0) beat Brewster (0-1-1) 9-1 on the road to become the only team on the Cape with two wins in a young season. A trio of Braves — Virginia Tech’s Tanner Schobel, UCONN’s Reggie Crawford and Quinnipiac’s Colton Bender — had multi-hit games, reaching base on a hit four, three and two times, respectively.

Community Counts: Building Post-COVID Community

He tagline for my column says it “chronicles community building on Cape Cod,” and indeed, that’s been the primary focus for almost all my reflections in this space for nearly a decade. For the past 15 months, though, it seems as if it’s been “all-COVID, all the time.” How to get out of that rut?
