BRISTOL, Mass. -- On Monday, the Pittsfield American Little League plays its second straight game under the lights at the A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Leadership Training Center.   Night baseball is still failry unique for the 12-year-olds, and that novelty nearly worked against the Americans in Sunday's opener.   Goffstown, N.H., had two runs in and a man on with one out in the top of the sixth, and Pittsfield was clinging to a 4-2 lead when Alex Magdziarsz lofted a fly ball to center field.   After finding the ball in the night sky, Owen Salvatore made the adjustments he needed to make the grab, helping to preserve an eventual 4-2 win.   "Honestly, I

BRISTOL, Conn. -- Evan Blake had 10 strikeouts in his Little League New England Regional debut on Sunday night.   None was bigger than the one that came with two out in the top of the third inning of an eventual 4-2 Pittsfield American Little League win.   It was a scoreless game in the third, but Goffstown, N.H., was threatening to change that with the bases loaded.   And Blake, who had allowed his first two hits in the inning, started off Goffstown's No. 3 hitter with a ball.   That is when Pittsfield manager Joe Skutnik sent assistant coach Pat Bramer to the mound.   "He said: Just relax and take your time," Blake said. "I was rushing a little

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Unlike his players, Pittsfield American Little League coach Joe Skutnik knows just what his team is getting into this week.   "As a coach who has been there before and when you get to this point, a state final game, you sit there and say, 'Man, the kids would have a blast down there,' " Skutnik said after Sunday's state title game win over Danvers. "So as a coach, you're really hoping that you can get there — not for yourself but for the kids because it's fun. It's a lot of fun down there."   On Sunday evening in Bristol, Conn., a fun summer for the Pittsfield Americans will continue when they take on

DALTON, Mass. -- The Dalton 14-and-under travel softball team traveled a long way in a short period of time.   Morgan Marauszwski went 4-for-5 with a triple, and Kayle O'Bryan struck out eight in a complete-game effort and hit a three-run triple Thursday as Dalton defeated the Berkshire Blaze, 9-2, to win the Berkshire County Championship at Pine Grove Park.   It was a solid win to end the summer for a team that looked a little shaky when the season began.   “The first tournament we went to, we were awful,” Dalton coach Ken Pease said. “We learned so much since that tournament. We got mercy-ruled almost every game.   “We kind of regrouped, and

Following his talk, Soares made sure to take the time to listen to the campers' own stories and answered their questions. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Wayne Soares' two favorite baseball players of all time certainly put up a good statistics. But, what makes them his favorites is the respect they showed to him.   "When they talk to you, they talk to you. They don't talk at you. If somebody is talking to you, they are respecting you. When they talk at you, they don't respect you. Remember, do not let anybody ever disrespect you, ever. I don't care who you are, where you live, the color of your skin, your nationality, nobody deserves to be disrespected,"

QUINCY, Mass. -- For the second game in a row, a late Post 68 rally fell short, and the team bowed out of the double-elmination American Legion state tournament with a 5-3 loss to Shrewsbury on Monday afternoon.   Shrewsbury led, 5-1, after five innings, but Post 68 rallied with two out for a pair of runs in the top of the seventh before succumbing.   Shrewsbury drew first blood with a run in the bottom of the first.   Post 68 tied it two innings later thanks to singles by Ian Benoit, Jack Cooney and Hunter Potash to load the bases and a fielder's choice off the bat of Joe Cracolici to score Benoit.   Shrewsbury regained the lead with three in the fourth inning and

MILLBURY, Mass. -- Pittsfield’s Anthony Scalise took his marching orders from the competition in Sunday’s Massachusetts 12-Year-Old Little League Championship Game.   With two out and men on first and second and Danvers clinging to a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the sixth, the Eastern Mass squad chose to issue a free pass to Evan Blake to load the bases.   It was hard to argue with the move, considering that Blake had five home runs in the four-game tournament, including one to score the Pittsfield American League’s first two runs on Sunday.   Hard to argue, but, if you were Scalise, a little hard to swallow.   “Yeah,” Scalise said when asked
