North Plainfield's Valley Leads Canucks Past Cardinals 5-1

May 10, 2014 at 6:50 AM

NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ -- On a drizzly night with the fog rolling down the Watchung hills toward Krausche Field, North Plainfield Canuck's pitcher James Valley pitched a complete game victory against the Plainfield Cardinals.  He gave up four hits over seven innings.

Leadoff hitter and short stop Kyle Grant, who had a small fan club in the stands, hit a home run and had two RBIs.

Freshman catcher Nick Cherasaro hadn't been very successful throwing out runners all year, but chose the game against Plainfield to break the schneid.  In the second he threw out Jose Mercardo on second after he took too large a lead, and later in the inning threw out Jose Rosa trying to steal second.  In the third he threw out another runner trying to steal second.

Beckerman’s Theory of Everything

Any armchair theoretical physicist knows that Stephen Hawking has pursued a lifelong quest to come up with a Theory of Everything. This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...

The play opens with three children and then a chorus singing “In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,” a melancholy tune that conjures visions of Swansea, a village in Wales,  with “fallen snow on ...
