Three Red Sox World Series Trophies Coming Sunday to LI

BOSTON -- The 2004, 2007 and 2013 World Series trophies are coming to Lyndon Institute this Sunday afternoon.

After stops in Colchester and Burlington, the title hardware from the Olde Towne Teame will be on display from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the LI auditorium. The visit to Vermont is part of an effort to share the hardware with fans throughout New England.

The trophies will first be in Colchester at the Lake Champlain Pond Hockey Classic on Malletts Bay. From 2:30-3:30 p.m., the trophies will be at Ruben James in Burlington. All stops are open to the public and include a visit from Red Sox mascot, Wally the Green Monster.

Sunday's trip will be the first time the 2013 World Series trophy has been to the Green Mountain State for a public event. This weekend's visits to New Hampshire and Vermont mark the final stops in the Red Sox four-weekend, six-state tour of New England before the trophies head south for spring training.

JIM FREGOSI: Fregosi, a former All-Star who won more than 1,000 games as a manager for four teams, died after an apparent stroke. He was 71.


The Atlanta Braves say they were notified by a family member that died early Friday in Miami, where he was hospitalized after the apparent stroke while on a cruise with baseball alumni.

Fregosi ended more than 50 years in baseball as a special assistant to Braves general manager Frank Wren.

Fregosi managed the Philadelphia Phillies to the 1993 National League pennant and the 1979 California Angels to their first American League Western Division title. He also managed the Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays.

He was a six-time All-Star shortstop with the Angels, who retired his No. 11 in 1988.

REDS: Pitcher Mat Latos had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee on Friday, giving the Cincinnati Reds a concern as they opened spring training.

Latos suffered the injury a few days earlier while throwing in Arizona. He'll have to stop throwing for about 10 days to let the knee heal. He went 14-7 last season with a 3.16 ERA in 32 starts. He had surgery to remove bone chips from his pitching elbow at the end of the season.

Reds pitchers and catchers reported on Friday and had physicals.

The course will be taught by high school baseball commissioner Bruce James, who has high school championship, NCAA championship and Babe Ruth World Series experience. For more information write Cmsr. James at or call at 626-3317.


Aloe Blacc To Sing National Anthem at Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Aloe Blacc will sing the national anthem before the 56th running of the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway made the announcement Friday, adding Blacc to a pre-race lineup that includes pop-country singer Luke Bryan and actor Gary Sinise. Bryan will perform a pre-race concert in the Daytona infield. Sinise will serve as honorary starter, waving the green flag to start the race.

Daytona is expected to name a grand marshal later Friday. The Daytona 500 is Feb. 23.

Blacc will release his major-label debut album "Lift Your Spirit" next month. The album follows Blacc's collaboration as vocalist and co-writer on Avicii's track "Wake Me Up," which hit the top five on Billboard's Hot 100 list and topped charts in more than 100 countries.
