Retirement Plan for Flutie

A Knight to Remember, Doug Digs Baseball Now
(Could the Sox Use a Guy Like Flutie?)

Days after his retirement from the NFL, Doug Flutie scored the first run of the game for the Natick Knights in the Boston Men's Baseball League as they defeated the Somerville Senators 4-1 at Trum Field last night.

In that at bat, Doug walked and later scored. Flutie played second base all game and even made a nice diving catch in the middle innings.

The Defense is No Longer a Rent-a-Wreck

The Red Sox have the fewest errors in the major leagues and lead the league with a .991 fielding percentage. This marks the fewest errors that the Sox have ever made in their first 38 games since research was first available in 1960. The team has gone a season-high seven games without an error and has just one miscue in the last 13 games. Sox outfielders have handled 264 chances without an error in 2006, the only team in baseball with no outfield errors.
