DALTON, Mass. — On a perfect day for an outdoor induction ceremony, Joanne Dowling found the perfect sentiment to capture the spirit of the Dalton CRA Athletic Hall of Fame.   "I would like to share a special thank you to the Dalton CRA and the community and, in particular, Boog Powell and Dan McMahon, for giving me the opportunity to play sports as a young girl," Dowling said, reading aloud from the letter of a 2020 inductee.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — As a dad, Stephen Nesbit knows how difficult the COVID-19 pandemic has been for youngsters.   As an officer in the North Adams Soccer Club, he can do something about it.   "I'm a father, I have a 9-year-old and a 16-year-old," Nesbit said on Thursday morning. "Kids have been trapped in the house since March. They want to get out and run around with their friends. We're giving them a responsible option for that."   The NASC and its corresponding youth groups throughout the county are working to put together competitive opportunities for players of all ages, up to and including high schoolers, who likely will not have the

They’ve got a lot of hitters.   “It’s just a credit to our pitching and defense. That’s kind of the trademark in our league. We stress pitching and defense, and that was there. And then the hitting,
