Dan Hoard's, tv/radio broadcaster for the Pawtucket Red Sox, latest blog post is an interesting read on former PawSox pitcher, UMass' own, Chad Paronto, who will be making his debut with the Pittsfield Colonials this thursday night as the team's opening night starter.

"The 35-year-old pitcher, who has appeared in 177 major league games with the Orioles, Indians, Braves, and Astros, has agreed to come out of retirement to be a player/coach for the Colonials. Chad lives in Pittsfield with his wife and two children.

'I really wanted to coach-slash-teach,' Paronto said.  'I guess I'm called the pitching coach, but I just want to teach guys how to pitch a little bit, and share some of the ideologies that I've come across in the 16 years that I've played.  I think it's going to be exciting...and the stadium is only about eight-tenths of a mile from my house.'
