Even though Daigle spent almost 25 years away from Newburyport before returning home in 2007, he still plays the game three to four times a week and said that he always kept Clipper ball with him wherever he was.
“Absolutely, everywhere I went,” said Daigle. “Everything that Coach Pettingell taught me from the simple things in the game and how to master the game and also just to play the game right. Coach P. always told us to play the game right. Wins or losses don’t matter as long as you’re playing it right.”
