    The devastating windstorm that sucker-punched Quincy two weeks ago is gradually fading in the rear-view mirror. In retrospect, valuable lessons were learned along the way. For one thing, many folks quickly discovered the value of having plenty of extra flashlight batteries on hand.

    At some point most summers, I find myself needing to watch my three favorite baseball movies. Maybe not in their entirety, but at least particular snippets.I will never pick "Bull Durham" over "Field of Dreams" -- or vice versa -- as my favorite, but there is no question those two films, plus the iconic "Pride of the Yankees," are my top three.
