Bourne Braves Invitee Gib Hobson Hurls No-Hitter For Nc State
     North Carolina State right-hander Gib Hobson, who'll be hurling for the Bourne Braves this summer, tossed a no-hitter against Maryland in Atlantic Coast Conference action on March 12 earning him National and Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week honors. The sophomore from Pfafftown, NC, was overpowering against the Terrapins, fanning a career-high 11 while walking four in tossing the first no-hitter in 12 years for NC State. He allowed an unearned run on a walk, error and groundout, spoiling a potential shutout in the 11-1 Wolfpack win. So far this season, Hobson is 4-1 with a sparkling 3.77 ERA for the Wolfpack.  Scott Sanford, CCBL Web-Site Editor

Cotuit Kettleers Join Crusade Against Cancer 
     The Cotuit Kettleers will help sponsor photographer Rick Heath’s plan to run 24 hours straight to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Heath has planned his 24-hour, 85-mile run, beginning at Lowell Park prior to the Cotuit Kettleers’ home game versus Wareham.
     After taking a warm-up lap around the perimeter of Lowell hopefully joined by as many fans who are willing – Heath will pace some 85 miles along local roads to Foxboro and by on June 25, to West Bridgewater. Heath, a veteran long-distance runner, hopes that his run will help raise donations to the American Cancer Society. Anyone interested in making a donation to the American Cancer Society on behalf of Heath and his 24-hour Crusade Against Cancer, should send checks made payable to the American Cancer Society, c/o Ivan Partridge, Cotuit Kettleers, P.O.
