Pauly Penta's Deli, which was last year's regular-season champion, is a game behind KFC at 5-2, and FOP Lodge 13, which won just one game last year, is a game and a half behind KFC at 4-2. Admiral is right behind FOP at 3-2, Genesis Construction is 2-6, and Barone's Construction has not won any of its seven games. Last year, KFC head coach Brendan Walker took over for his father, Mike Walker, and kept the team's winning tradi- tion alive. Walker said that he lost about four 15-year-olds from last year in the 13-15-year-old league, but KFC now has five new 13-year-olds and two new 15-year See BABE RUTH, Page 18 Klibanoff Eye Associates Welcomes Dr. Mona Aoude Klibanoff Now accepting New Patients 55 Broad Street Pawtucket, RI 401-723-3400 Dr. Klibanoff specializes in primary eye care including comprehensive eye exams, treatment of ocular diseases, glasses and contact lens service, and the pre and post operative management of cataract and LASIK surgery patients.
