To the Editor:
Derek Jeter, the New York Yankees venerable Hall of Fame shortstop, broke the 3,000 base hit record standard on Saturday, July 9. As a result, he became only one of 28 Major League Baseball players who have achieved this historically monumental height.
But, if you were one of the minority of Rhode Islanders who read the July 10, 2011 Sunday Providence Journal, you’d have to turn to page C-5 of the Sports section to read about Jeter’s exploits. He shared that page with stories about R.I.’s Minor League PawSox!
Oh, the front page of the Sunday Pro-Jo Sports section? Well, that was reserved for reports on a certain Red Sox pitcher with a 6.84 ERA and the chief cook for the PawSox.
I guess the battle is over. Pro-Jo has thrown in the towel. The $64,000 question now is, who will be the last subscriber?
