NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams SteepleCats are seeking host families to house players for their upcoming 2018 baseball season.

The host family commitment is to house a SteepleCats player from June 2 through the beginning of August. Players should have their own room and families provide their meals. Players will arrange their own transportation.  

In exchange, host families receive a "Golden Ticket" that allows them to attend any game throughout the league – and never expires. They also receive a discount on SteepleCats merchandise and are able to build a relationship which can last a lifetime.

For more information on hosting a player, email Pat Decker.

DALTON, Mass. — On one of the few spring days the region has enjoyed this year, the boys' summer got things started at Chamberlain Park.   Escorted by fire trucks and cheerleaders and members of the Wahconah Regional High School baseball team, the six teams of the Dalton-Hinsdale Little League paraded to the field where they will hone their skills over the next seven weeks and — they hope — on into June and July.   "A few weeks ago, I didn't think we'd be having this ceremony today," league President Ben Melle said to the crowd gathered at the field.   But thanks to the hard work of numerous volunteers and a little break from the

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The Williams men’s crew took to its home course of Onota Lake in Pittsfield Saturday to line up against Wesleyan and Amherst in the annual Little Three Championships.   This is the first time in many years that Amherst has returned to the regatta. The conditions were blustery with a moderate cross wind, but relatively tame compared to practice conditions on Onota for the past several days for Williams.   The first varsity opened up the action for the day, looking to bring the Saratoga Oar trophy back to the Purple Valley. The Ephs had a solid start, keeping even with Wesleyan, and pulling away from Amherst, through the high strokes and first 500 meters.
