  1. Why wasn’t Billy McHugh named to the Middlesex All-Conference Team? If his coaches had played him the way they should’ve he would be named! Just look at the games at Fenway Park against the Marauders, if was played in the first half that game would’ve been a blow out! But they waited until the second 1/2 to play him & he WON the game for them!
