NORWALK, Conn. -- The Pittsfield Babe Ruth 14-year-old all-stars battled back from a five-run deficit to tie it in the top of the seventh but dropped a 7-6 decision to Rhode Island on Monday at the New England Regional.   The loss drops Pittsfield from the eight-team regional, but it did not go down without a fight.   "I couldn't be prouder of how they battled back," Pittsfield coach Bryon Sherman said. "We fell down early and could have given up. I'm proud of the boys for their effort."   Sherman said starting pitcher Shane Bernardo deserved a better fate on the mound, but North Providence, R.I., jumpe out to an early lead with four unearned runs

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds knows mountain biking is an emerging industry. But, he also knows people who drive through the Berkshires to get elsewhere for it.   "Mountain biking has been identified as an industry that is growing and we are well positioned for it," Hinds said.   According to New England Mountain Bike's Berkshire County Branch President Alison McGee, there are hundreds of great mountain biking trails throughout Berkshire County. But, most aren't mapped. Unless people are in certain Facebook groups or know others who can show them around, many don't know about them. She knows there are different levels of maintenance being

DALTON, Mass. -- The Dalton CRA Invitational Softball Tournament has grown four-fold in nine years, and there is one reason why.   "The biggest thing is just the volunteers," CRA Director of Recreation Dustin Belcher said. "I have an incredible committee of people who really give so much time and effort -- most of them do not have kids playing this weekend, but they've been here since their kids started, and they've kind of stuck it out.   "They've focused on all the other stuff so I can focus on recruiting and getting teams here."   It is a 15-person committee that helps Belcher stage the event, which got under way on Friday night and
