The veterans were served hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and drinks. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Many young men have found themselves in the midst of battle at the age of 18.   They returned from overseas with limited support, post-traumatic stress and chronic illness, and often ended up living on the streets. But some found their way to Soldier On, which cares and helps pick homeless veterans back up and onto their feet.   Many of the 17- or 18-year-old young men on the Pittsfield High School baseball team aren't eyeing battlefields but rather college dorm rooms. But on Friday, they spent their practice time off the field and up at Soldier On, meeting, talking, and serving

It was an action-packed Sunday with five Soccer Domain Academy teams in competition and four squads on the road. The club went 0-3-2 on the day.   The under-13 girls were on the road for the first game of the day against GPS Rhode Island North Elite Girls. SDA started the game very slowly, giving its opponents too much time on the ball and allowing them to move the ball well with very little challenge. In the defensive third, the away side defended well and didn’t allow GPS to convert consistent pressure into shots on goal.    As the half progressed the pressure paid off and slow reactions from the visitors allowed GPS to get a shot off with no pressure on the ball

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The committee behind the naming of Buddy Pellerin Baseball Field at Clapp Park has set a goal of raising $250,000 in the next three years to improve the ballfield.

The Parks Commission in April unanimously approved renaming the Clapp Park ballfield after longtime baseball coach George "Buddy" Pellerin. The committee for the Clapp Park Project had applied for the naming and presented the commission more than 150 letters of support.

The committee is comprised of former players and friends of Pellerin who are committed to recognize the large impact he has made in the city during his more than 40 years of coaching. With the renaming approved, the

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The U11 Soccer Domain Academy boys hosted GPS Stateline at Berkshire Community College in an unusual Friday evening game scheduled to make up for a game canceled by snow earlier this year.   An action packed game saw the home team run out a convincing 5-0 winner.    It was a miserable Friday night in the Berkshires, with the rain pouring down and the gusty wind making it a bitter experience for spectators. Despite the conditions, SDA got off to a fantastic start and played some positive and creative soccer. The home team controlled the midfield third and distributed fantastically well to the wide players and strikers.   The hosts also dominated the
