The Marine Lodge Masons rebounded from their preseason loss to GTR (and also from an unfortunate injury to player coach Jayme Baker who was hit during the preseason with a line drive to the face) by sweeping a double header from the Average Joe’s. Jayme is doing okay and was glad to see his team rebound from his injury with two big wins as the Masons peppered the Joe’s with some line drives and had three 7-run innings. The whole line- up contributed to the offense but the top hitters were Greg Seychew who had 6 hits and 7 RBI’s, Chris Cook had 6 hits and 5 RBI’s, Joe Leblanc had 6 hits and 4 RBI’s, and Dave Edwards who had 5 hits and 4 RBI’s.

Both teams are looking forward to hooking up and settling the new “Grudge” match.
GTR kept their momentum from the preseason going as they took two games from the Eagles Nest, as Jon “Wheels” Ewing, Chuck Wood and Caleb “Lady Bug” Anderson all had multiple homeruns. The brother’s Lynch,( Jay and Brian) both had some big hits and were backed by the lights out pitching of Paulie “Tamalie” Simonette as he dealt with Gale Force winds at the Air Force Field. GTR got some great defensive plays from Ryan “Snooze” Moore, Billy Morrison, Tim “Oakey” O’Connell and Dewey Evans. Jon Healey was solid behind the plate as GTR improved to 2-0 to start the regular season.

101st Intelligence Squadron member runs for cancer research

The year was 2001 and Michael Cornell had just graduated from law school and was ready to begin working as a trial attorney in Boston when he lost his father to pancreatic cancer at the age of 51.
“I wanted to do something meaningful to fight cancer and help other families avoid my family’s experience but I didn’t know where to best channel my efforts and intentions, “ said Cornell, a lieutenant colonel with the 101st Intelligence Squadron. “So, I contacted the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and they put me in touch with an organization called The Dana Farber Leadership Council.” The council is a group of young business professionals in Boston that raises money and awareness for cancer research.
Through the friends he had made during many Dana Farber fundraising events, Cornell was introduced to the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge, which is a group of more than 500 people from across the United States who run the Boston Marathon to raise money for Dana Farber. Although Cornell played a variety of sports in high school including cross-country and track, he never imagined running marathons at a point in life when many people begin transitioning away from time-consuming and physically demanding activities.
During its 21-year existence, the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge has raised more than $43 million for cancer research. All of the donations go to the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The Barr Program allows scientists who have new ideas, but might not yet qualify for government research grants, to pursue innovative ways to cure cancers and improve patients’ quality of life.
“Running for Dana Farber is, without question, one of the most rewarding things I have ever done with my life,” said Cornell, who completed his fifth consecutive Boston Marathon, April 19. “Our team trains together for months, but the highlight is marathon weekend, especially the team’s pasta dinner the night before the race.” The dinner is an opportunity for the runners to listen to doctors and researchers who tell them how their fundraising efforts are helping to save lives and find cures for certain types of cancer. The inspirational evening also includes testimonials from cancer survivors and spotlights the children who are patients at the Dana Farber. The program concludes with a slideshow of the children at the hospital who were paired with a runner but who did not live to see the marathon. “By the time you leave the dinner, there’s no doubt in your mind that you will finish the marathon for these kids no matter how much you are hurting from the run,” said Cornell. “Almost everyone knows someone who has battled cancer, so throughout the race itself, dozens of spectators will yell out things like ‘thank you Dana Farber’ or ‘Dana Farber saved my mom,’ which inspires me to keep putting one foot in front of the other.”
