Former UMass hurler Chad Paronto is mentioned in this piece on PawSox teammate Jarrod Saltalamacchia who was just called up to the Red Sox and has the longest surname in Major League Baseball history.

Gordon Edes writes that, "Saltalamacchia learned about his call-up around 2:30 a.m., after the PawSox arrived by bus in Allentown, Pa., from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. For the ride, he wore a special sweater, acquired by Pawtucket pitcher Chad Paronto, awarded in the clubhouse to the player deemed the star of the game.

'It's a sweater he made, bought in a convenience store,' Saltalamacchia said, momentariliy abashed by the sweater's notoriety. "It says 'Meowy Christmas.' [PawSox pitcher] Rich Hill loves cats, but we decided to make it a team thing. The first night Rich Hill won it, which was good. Last night it was me. I was very excited, thrilled."
