BRADLEY JOINS THE TEAM

Grenada Baseball's varsity baseball team has a new coach, but getting there wasn't pretty — it followed a bitter back-and-forth between a board member who protested the hire and the new coach's wife.

Steve Bradley, who was Catasauqua's assistant varsity coach last season, replaces Thomas, who had held the position all but one year since 1999, and was the assistant coach from 1992-98.

CHARGERS COACH LEAVES

The Chargers baseball coach and athletic director Peter Thomas has resigned as the coach of the Academy baseball team, he said in an e-mail to fellow coaches and the Globe. As a thankyou gift from the School he was given a pair of Wales Rugby Tickets.

Thomas just recently took over as the athletic directer of the school.
