The Retired Investor: The Drive-In Returns
By Bill Schmick,
03:41PM / Thursday, August 27, 2020
There is not much good one can say about the coronavirus, but if one looks hard enough there are a few silver linings. One of which is the revival of the drive-in theater.   Cinemas have been closed for months, thanks to COVID-19, and are only now re-opening to limited audiences. In the meantime, consumers have been surviving on streaming movies and television series for entertainment. However, one bright spot for those who can take advantage of it has been the drive-in theater.    It is well-suited for a country in pandemic, and ready made for social distancing. At many drive-ins, autos are parked at least 6 feet apart. Ticket-holders do not need to wear a mask as long as

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Cam Blake powered through five innings on the mound. His offense provided enough power to make sure that was all he needed to do to get the win.   Blake struck out 11 for the complete-game win as the Pittsfield Little League American Division 11-year-old All-Stars captured the county championship with a 17-1 win over the National Division on Wednesday at Deming Park.   Robby Bazinet went 3-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs, and Blake helped his cause with a pair of hits and three RBIs.   The big key was Blake’s performance on the mound, where he fanned seven of the last nine batters he faced and allowed just three hits and three

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
08:58PM / Tuesday, August 25, 2020

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Baseball players often are told not to take a bad at-bat into the field.

But their coaches did not say anything about not taking a bad outcome into the field.   In the top of the fourth inning on Tuesday at Deming Park, Anton Lazits was on third base with one out when Stevie Zuccolo lofted a fly ball to right. Lazits came home for what appeared to give the Pittsfield Storm a 6-1 lead over the South County Navy in the title game of the Berkshire County Babe Ruth 16-18 league.   But as the next batter dug in at the plate, South County pitcher Jack Carpenter tossed the ball to third for a successful appeal that Lazits left early, and the inning
