    Daniel Murphy, grandson of Springfield resident Ann Murphy, recently celebrated his 24th birthday on April 1. But you could say he didn’t celebrate until he smacked his first home run of the season on Opening Day against the Reds in Cincinnati.

    He also added an RBI on a bases-loaded fielder’s choice that knocked in the second and deciding run for the Mets as they beat the Reds 2-1 on April 6.

    “It’s the little things.” You hear that cliché all the time, but for the Washington County Commanderettes, it happens to be true. Little things like missing a tag or cut-off here and there are adding up to big trouble for ladies.
