The Natick High School baseball team will be playing for cancer awareness as the American Cancer Society will be there as the Redhawks host Wellesley on May 20.
The Natick High School baseball team will be hosting Wellesley in a Coaches vs. Cancer game on Monday, May 20. For Redhawks coach Josh Hanna, the game is a way to keep a friend of his who passed away last January in his life. His friend died from cancer. "[Cancer] is a thing that affects us all," Hanna. "We love athletics... Sometimes I think we get carried away with tangibles such as championships." Hanna was invited to a high school football game in Michigan, where his friend is from, and in that game every player played for someone and a charity. That's what the Redhawks and Raiders will do at their game on Monday. Each Natick player will wear a jersey with the name of who they're playing for on the back. "They'll also present a jersey …

Massachusetts also largely supports Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
Bay Staters may like Hillary Clinton and support same-sex marriage, but nothing compares to their love of Red Sox Manager John Farrell. The Sox manager received the lowest disapproval percentage in Public Policy Polling history – even better than Abraham Lincoln, Mother Theresa and Santa Claus. What a difference a year makes for the Sox. The team’s hot start has 27 percent of those who took the survey predicting a World Series. Only 3 percent said the Sox will not make the playoffs. Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said Farrell is doing a good job. Only 1 percent disapproved of Farrell’s work this year. This is the lowest disapproval rating Public Policy Polling has ever seen. In comparison, in a national poll in November, Lincoln was …

Patch editor gives a first-hand report from the Boston Marathon.
Monday, April 15 was my first time running the Boston Marathon. It was supposed to be a fun day focused on overcoming a strenuous 26.2-mile race, but once I reached the end, I was greeted with panic, caution and tears rather than high fives and celebrations. Monday was a perfect day for a runner and spectator, it was sunny and warm with a cool breeze. It would be hard to find an excuse why anyone with the day off from work wouldn’t be in town to either watch the race, the Sox game or to grab a bite at a restaurant. I was running this marathon as a bandit. I had no official number and was nervous security or someone from the Boston Athletic Association would kick me out. Once I reached the start line, it was smooth sailing. I was full of …

This is the eighth and final in a series of profiles of Natick residents running the 2013 Boston Marathon on April 15.
Runner Name: Paul Joseph Age: 44 Profession: Management consultant, teacher and community volunteer (former selectman). Marathon Experience: This Boston Marathon will be my eighth consecutive Boston and 16th marathon. I’ve run the Austin, Marine Corps, Victoria BC, Colorado, Bay State and Portland ME races, too.

My original intent was to register for a race in the spring and one in the fall to keep me …
