R.I. Native Covers All The Bases for Red Sox Players

Take it from three-time All-Star Hanley Ramirez, who met Ferreira more than a decade ago when he was an 18-year-old Red Sox prospect coming out of the Dominican Republic to play in the United States for the first time.
“She (Raquel Ferreira) was everything for us,” Ramirez said. “She helped us with everything we needed. She always was there for us. She was like family to us. She has always been.”
Everything? Really? There’s no way to narrow it down?
Ramirez opened his mouth wide to exaggerate his enunciation, as if he and his questioner were speaking two different languages.
“Everything,” he said. “Everything.”

JuCo team to sign first female pitcher; daughter of former MLB closer

History will be made when the Bossier Parish Community College baseball team signs pitcher Sarah Hudek, the first female to play baseball at BPCC, to the roster. She is also one of the first females to play at the collegiate level.

Hudek, the daughter of former MLB pitcher and All-Star, John Hudek, earned her baseball scholarship from head coach Aaron Vorachek and will make it official when she signs with the team at a ceremony in her hometown of Houston at 6 p.m. on Wednesday….

“This is not a gimmick and I could care less about media attention,” Vorachek told the Shreveport Times. “I’m signing her to help us win ballgames.”...

Like her father, Hudek’s pitches pack a powerful punch. The 5-10 left-hander throws 82 miles per hour.

“I grew up around pro baseball and I’ve had the opportunity to pick the brain, not only of my dad, but of other major leaguers he is friends with,” Hudek said. “I have a fastball, change-up, curve and I’m working on a cutter.”
