Woonsocket's Briggs back in his element

WOONSOCKET — It’s a recent Friday morning and George Briggs is enjoying life. The reason? He’s in his element, albeit with a different clientele. A group of senior citizens – a mix of men and women – have come to World War II Veterans Park as part of the city’s three-days-per-week walking club. It’s a development that caused Briggs to don the same coaching hat he proudly wore during his 46 seasons in charge of the Woonsocket High cross-country and track programs.

American Pastime: On the Sustained Power of Field of Dreams

Phil Alden Robinson’s “Field of Dreams” (1989) may not be one of the greatest movies of all time but it surely has earned an astonishing amount of affection. It belongs to a very select group of features in which the audience doesn’t need to be familiar with the core subject to get the feeling they are dealing with something very personal, though it surely doesn’t hurt. The film came out at a time when making a great baseball movie was deemed as something almost unthinkable. It is hard to imagine a greater achievement in Kevin Costner’s career than having made “Bull Durham” (1988) and “Field of Dreams” back-to-back, two entries that clearly fit the bill. Sadly, Costner’s eventual third turn at bat (so to speak) in “For Love of the Game” (1999) exemplified precisely what’s wrong with the vast majority of baseball movies to begin with.
