Former Sox pitcher Tudor visits school board


The baseball clinic has already attracted 21 kids, most from Peabody, Tudor said. “We want to keep them from doing the things I did as a kid, throwing snowballs at trucks,” he joked.

The clinic can accommodate 60 kids. The cost is $90 for four days, $75 for three. Having coached at Masconomet High School, Tudor, a Middleton resident, has held similar clinics there.

“I don’t do it for any other reason than that I love to do it,” he told the committee. He estimated that 70 percent of the proceeds will go to the baseball program. Veteran coach Dave Bettencourt and some Peabody High players will help.

School committeeman Ed Charest said, “Me and Brandi (Carpenter) are too ... young. We don’t remember you at all.”

Charest asked some tough questions, wondering, for example, if Tudor would charge money for autographs.

Tudor shook his head, insisting his autograph isn’t worth much.

“These kids don’t know who he is,” Hochman said.

That comment brought Beverley Griffin Dunne to exclaim, “If they’re from Peabody, they do.”
