10 - August 6, 2010
submitted by Coach Charlie Huggins The Hudson Hammers finished up their first season in the Granite State Wood Bat League with an impressive 12-7 record. The Hammers lost a heartbreaker to the Derry Rush in the second round of the playoffs.
In the first round, the Hammers won a thriller against Hooksett, 13-10. Paul Foley was the winning pitcher, with Derek Lessard picking up the save. Hudson broke out the lumber early with six hits in the first inning sparked by two-

run singles from Lessard and Ryan Perigny. Matt Rua was the offensive star, going 3 for 4 with two doubles and two RBI. Jose Rodriguez, Robbie Flohr, and RJ Younghusband all had two hits, with Adam Garside and David Malagodi each collecting one hit.
In the second round, the Hammers ran into the Derry Rush at Pinkerton Academy. The Hammers handed Derry only their second loss of the season earlier in the week on the back of a Rodriguez no-hitter. In the second game of that double- header, the Hammers lost in the seventh inning after leading all game. Derry finished the season 19-3, losing to Pelham in the championship game. Rodriguez was the starting
pitcher once again in the playoff game. The Hammers

allowed five unearned runs in the first inning, but did not allow a hit the rest of the way. No Derry runner got past second the rest of the game, and Dan Teague made the play of the day by making a running catch in deep center and then firing a strike to Robbie Flohr at first, doubling off the runner. The Hammers were able to scratch out a run in the third ignited by a Flohr double. The boys never quit and went down swinging, with the last out being recorded on a bang-bang play to first. For those of you who do not know, this team
literally came together in less than 72 hours. Some of the boys didn’t know each other from a hole in the wall, but I am proud to say that there is not a closer team to be found today! It was truly my honor to coach this group of young men: Jose Rodriguez, RJ Younghusband, Jacob Huggins, Henry Williams, David Malagodi, Christian

submitted by Dean LaMothe The 11-year-old Hudson Cal Ripken All-Stars capped an outstanding NH State baseball tournament with a convincing 4-0 win over the Barrington all-stars. Finishing the tournament 4-0, Hudson displayed a balanced attack with outstanding pitching, timely hitting, and near-flawless defense. Hudson showed they can win with the long ball by cracking three home runs in the tournament, but they also won by playing small ball—advancing runners with a sacrifice bunt or a ground out to the opposite side of the field to advance a runner to third base, and then a timely hit. The story of the tournament was Hudson’s pitching and defense. Using a balanced pitching attack and making nearly every defensive play they are supposed to make, Hudson never gave its opponent a chance at a big inning. Hudson advances to the Regional
Tournament being held in Winchester, MA, starting on Friday, August 6. Thank you, boys, for a great ride thus far, but we are not done yet!

New Solicitation Law- continued from Page 6
“It is not unusual for an organization to bus into Hudson dozens of people from out of state for the purpose of them soliciting their wares by going door to door. Some people refer to these people as gypsies, while others regard them as a nuisance. The bus loads of people, sometimes as many as 20, live in local hotel rooms sleeping on floors, chairs, or wherever they can. They are dropped off in a neighborhood early in the morning, and they will be picked up dusk,” stated Chief Lavoie. Thanks to this new legislation, our law enforcement officials now
have more tools at their hands to protect and serve the residents of Hudson. The legislation was designed to “keep our residents safe,” stated Chief Lavoie. The text of the new bill states: 102-a Hawkers, Peddlers and Vendors. The governing board of a
city, town or village district may adopt, by ordinance or regulation, provisions for the licensure and regulation of itinerant vendors, hawkers, peddlers, traders, farmers, merchants, or other persons who sell, offer to sell, or take orders for merchandise from temporary or transient sales locations within a town or who go from town to town or place to place within a town for such purposes. Any person who violates any provision of such ordinance or regulation shall be guilty of a [violation] class B misdemeanor, and each continuing day of violation after notice shall constitute a separate offense. A city, town, or village district shall be specifically prohibited, however, from licensing or regulating a candidate for public office in the process of obtaining signatures on nomination papers, who
seeks to have the candidate’s name placed on the ballot for the state general election by submitting nomination papers under RSA 655:40. Provisions adopted under this section shall be in addition to any requirements imposed by the state under either RSA 320 or RSA 321 and may include, but shall not be limited to: 298:2 New Section; Background Checks for Certain Vendors. Amend RSA 31 by inserting after section 102-a the following new section:
31:102-b Background Checks for Certain Vendors.
I. Any municipality may require persons who go from door to door, place to place within a town, or town to town, who sell, offer to sell, or take orders for merchandise or offer to perform personal services for household repairs or improvements, to submit to a state records check only, or both a federal and state records check. Municipalities that require a criminal history records check shall have such person submit to the municipality a notarized criminal history records release form, as provided by the division of state police, which authorizes the release of the person’s criminal records, if any. To obtain a federal record check, such person shall also submit to the municipality, with the release form, a complete set of fingerprints.

II. For a state and federal criminal records check, the municipality shall request that such person submit with the release form a complete set of fingerprints taken by a qualified law enforcement agency or an authorized employee of the department of safety. The municipality shall submit the criminal history records release form and inked fingerprint card to the division of state police which shall conduct a criminal records check through its records and through the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Fingerprints taken digitally by Live Scan or similar device shall be transmitted directly to the New Hampshire division of state police. In the event that the first set of fingerprints is invalid due to insufficient pattern, the municipality may, in lieu of the criminal history records check, accept police clearances from every city, town, or county where the person has lived during the past 10 years. Upon completion of the records check, the division of state police shall release copies of the criminal history records to the local law enforcement agency of the municipality which shall maintain the confidentiality of all criminal history records information received pursuant to this section. The municipality may charge a fee to recover the costs of such investigation. III. To obtain a state records check only, the municipality shall submit a state criminal history records release form, completed by such person, to the division of state police. IV. Such person shall also include the location of all municipalities in which such person seeks to transact business. Such municipalities, in accordance with their licensing requirements, shall have access to the results of the criminal history records check and the New Hampshire division of state police shall release copies of the criminal history records to such municipalities. Such person shall be responsible for any additional fees for any administrative costs incurred by the New Hampshire division of state police under this section. V.

Gamst, Paul Foley, Tristan George, Adam Garside, Dan Teague, Ryan Perigny, Robbie Flohr, Matt Rua, Derek Lessard, and Jason Ferlan. I would also like to thank the other two coaches on the team, Don Perigny and Brian Lessard. They never hesitated when I asked for help, and they were huge! A huge thanks to my wife, Catrina— she handled all the behind-the-scenes, and I couldn’t have done it without her. The Hammers aren’t done yet, though. They
would like to invite the entire town of Hudson to Fisher Cats Stadium in Manchester this Sunday at 4 p.m. for some free baseball. Hudson will be taking on Hooksett in an exhibition immediately following the Fisher Cats game. It will be a seven- inning game, and you are welcome to bring in food and come to cheer on the Hammers.
