Local team on three game roll
After winning the last three of a four game set at the Greensboro Grasshoppers the Lakewood BlueClaws will be looking to build on their success when they return home to First Energy Park for a seven game home stand. The Delmarva Shore Birds will be their first guests for a three game series with tonight's first pitch set for 6:35 p.m. The first 2000 fans through the gates will get a BlueClaws All-Star poster and it is also one of five Scout Nights at the ballpark. As with every Monday home game it is also a kids eat free night at the park. If the seats at the stadium are too hard for you, the first 2000 fans at Tuesday's game will get seat cushions. It is also a Senior Day Tuesday when all seniors eat free and there is also baseball …

Howell resident ready to start pro football career
Growing up on the football fields of the Howell Pop Warner league Ryan Spadola said he and his friends would dream of someday trading in their Lions jerseys for that of their favorite professional team. When the New York Jets open their rookie training camp Spadola will have the chance to see that dream come true after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent. Coming out of Freehold Township High School Spadola said he was just glad when he got the chance to take his game to the college level at Lehigh University. Making the jump from college to pro ball was not something on his realistic radar at the time. "At that current stage it seemed like kind of a far stretch," he said. "Throughout my years at Lehigh I started to grow and …

Charleston and Lexington coming to Lakewood.
A road trip that started with two wins at Greenville took a turn for the worst for the Lakewood BlueClaws as the Asheville Tourists and mother nature made for a messy swing through the southern half of the South Atlantic League. After Greenville won the last game of a three game set 12-1 Asheville won the first game of their series in a 14-10 thriller. A rain storm then rolled through the area canceling not only Saturday's game but a double dip on Sunday. The teams played a doubleheader on Monday with Asheville winning both games before the team returns home for seven games against Charleston and Lexington. First pitch on Wednesday is scheduled for 6:35 against the RiverDogs. It will also be a Kentucky Derby Preview Night and a chance to…

Steven Reed, a modified stock car racer, takes the checkered flag two years in a row
The last time modified stock car driver Steven Reed won an opening night at Wall Stadium, he proposed to his girlfriend in the winner’s circle. That was last year. Reed, of Freehold, won again on Saturday’s opening of the 2013 racing season at the Wall Township track, and announced that he and his bride are expecting a child later this year, track officials said. Reed posted the fastest lap during time trials and picked the pole position in a blind draw for the 40-lap main event. Reed took lead at the outset, leaving several drivers to fight over second, including Adam LaCicero of Lavallette, Freehold’s Chas Okerson and Howell’s Eric Mauriello, track officials said. At the finish Reed was chased across the line by 2012 Sportsman champ …

JR Smith helps lead Knicks into playoffs
During his high school basketball career JR Smith went from Millstone to Trenton and neighboring Lakewood before finally heading to Newark on his way to the NBA. On Monday it was announced that Smith was named the Sixth man of the year as the top reserve in the league. Coming off the bench for the New York Knicks Smith averaged just over 18 points per game and scored at least 20 points in 29 of his 80 games this year. In a story on ESPN.com Smith said he was honored by the recognition. "I just wanted to show everybody that I could be a team guy and it's all about the team," he said. Smith spent the start of his professional career in New Orleans and Denver before arriving at Madison Square Garden for the 2011-2012 season. He was drafted …

Trip to the ballpark about more than just a game
When the country was rocked by the terrorist attacks in Boston last week the affect of the blasts were felt by people far beyond the people who were in the city at the time. Howell resident Tom Smith made the trip up to Fenway Park with his son Ryan for Saturday's game and was part of a full house to see the Red Sox play. A game against the Kansas City Royals may not have normally drawn a sellout to the historic ballpark. However, with it being the first game since the events at the Boston Marathon Smith said there was a different feeling in the air. "Based on what transpired in this great city this week the crowd was electric and the day was quite emotional," he said in a post on the Howell Patch Facebook page. Smith said the whole …

The former coach, fired for abusive behavior towards his basketball players, was spotted coaching a seventh grade girls basketball league this weekend.
Mike Rice was fired for hurling basketballs at his players and unleashing insulting homophobic rants, but the former Rutgers mens basketball coach was spotted over the weekend coaching a seventh grade girls AAU team in Holmdel. Deadspin.com reported that Rice, who lives in Little Silver, was seen coaching a 12-year-old girls basketball team at Holmdel High School on Saturday night. The article cites tweets by contributor Brian Geltzeiler of hoopscritic.com reporting that Rice was acting "crazy as ever yelling @ both refs and kids." Geltzeiler posted in a follow up tweet, "Just to clarify. I'm not joking. Mike Rice is actually coaching a 7th grade girls AAU team today and he's still acting like a mad man." The news elicited a number of …
