Umpires Larry Aquilino and Bob Primavera drew praise from both teams for their answering the call to duty prior to the Men's Recreation Softball League's playoff game between Burns Insurance and CT Fire Protection at Washington Field on Monday. The base bags were pegged in at 70-feet for tournament-rule play. The duo used their hands, and a shovel provided by CT Fire Protection's Graham Lapham, to tour the infield and reset the bags at 65 feet.
