RADIO: Shrewsbury American Legion Baseball and a Charity Event Honoring the Late, Great John Pedace

By Joe Parello (@HerewegoJoe)

It was another packed episode of "The Local Sports Lunchbox" this week on WPKZ. First, Ken Swain from the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs stopped by the studio to talk about his team's first ever playoff run, and how the Dirt Dawgs can become one of the top local summer league teams in the coming years.

Then, we were joined on the phone by Gianna Allentuck, who is organizing a charity event in honor of her late brother, former Tantasqua lacrosse coach John Pedace. For more on the event, and information on how you can contribute to the "Be Legendary" campaign, click here.

Finally, Chris Kyne of the Telegram & Gazette called in from North Carolina, where Shrewsbury's American Legion baseball team has just prevailed over the top team from Michigan in the national tournament. What more does Shrewsbury have to do to bring home a national title, and how have they gotten to this point? Chris fills us in on all that.

For all of those stories, plus a quick preview of the Patriots' preseason game against Jacksonville, listen in below.
