LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Winning a high school state championship is the kind of thing that gives most people a lifetime of memories.   But it was just one of the once-in-a-lifetime events for members of the Drury High baseball team in 1978.   Both the North Adams Blue Devils' state crown and their exhibition games in Taiwan were recognized Sunday in a ceremony marking their 40th anniversary at the Baseball in the Berkshires exhibit at the Berkshire Mall.   "That were a lot of things happening that year for us seniors," said Glenn Boyer, who, along with '78 teammate Mark Wilk, was on hand for a reunion hosted by the exhibit.   "That was

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Jake Rand was roughed up for four runs in the first inning of Sunday’s Berkshire Adult Baseball League championship game.   In the second, he faced runners on second and third with one out and the heart of Housatonic’s lineup coming to the plate.   And then, Rand got to work.   The Taconic High grad struck out the next two men he faced to start a run of 15 straight outs in leading the Cornerstone 90s to a 6-4, come-from-behind win to clinch the BABL 20-year-old division title for the second straight season.   “It was just loosening up and bearing down,” Rand said. “Having fun, ultimately. We’re out there --

A donation from Berkshire Bank helped the court be completed this year.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The two teens looked askance at the group gathered at the basketball court at Lakewood Park on Thursday before wandering away with their ball. 

It seems even the brief celebration of the completely refurbished court on Newell Street was enough to disrupt a steady stream of players.    "Every time I drive by, there are kids on the court," said Parks Commission Chairwoman Michele Matthews before the ribbon cutting officially celebrating the court's completion with the aid of a Berkshire Bank Foundation grant.    Lori Gazzillo Kiely, senior vice president

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. -- Like a lot of high school kids, Thomas Fraser settled in for a boring day on a gray August Monday.   But his definition of boring was a little different than most.   His definition included firing three birdies and carding a 2-over-par round of 73 at Egremont Country Club to win the Berkshire County Junior Allied Championship.   “It all went pretty well. I think I tried to make a lot of pars,” Fraser said. “I wanted to play a boring round.   “It was a nice course, so I was able to make a couple of birdies that I hit in there with the approach shot.”   Fraser of Greenock Country Club recorded birdies on the

BRISTOL, Conn. -- A hop and a homer conspired Sunday to end one magical run for the Pittsfield American Little League All-Stars.   Coventry, R.I., edged the Massachusetts Champions, 3-2, at Breen Field to earn New England’s berth in this week’s Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.   Coventry’s Jake Mather capped a 3-for-3 performance with a solo home run to left to break a 2-2 tie in the top of the fifth inning, and Logan Lama limited a potent Pittsfield offense to three hits in 4-⅔ innings of work.   Pittsfield, which went 3-0 at the regional heading into Sunday’s rain-delayed final, rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the bottom of the

BRISTOL, Conn. — Give Pittsfield American Little League manager Joe Skutnik credit for knowing the opposition.   After Wednesday's win over Rhode Island at the New England Regional, Skutnik was asked about Pittsfield's success against the top of Rhode Island's lineup.   Skutnik was quick to reframe the conversation.   "And the Fuentes kid, he's a good little stick," Skutnik said. "They hide [Sammy Fuentes] down there in the eight hole."   As Coventry, R.I., showed on Friday afternoon, you cannot sleep on the bottom of its lineup.   Little Rhody came up big in the bottom of the sixth, scoring six times to stun New Hampshire,

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Peruse the rosters of the 12 teams competing at this week’s Little League Baseball Eastern Regional Tournament, and a common theme emerges.   The players and coaches frequently have the same last names.   In fact, 10 of those teams have at least one coach -- and sometimes all three -- who are related to at least one of the players.   Only two -- Washington, D.C., in the Mid-Atlantic bracket and the Pittsfield Americans in the New England bracket -- break that trend.   Manager Joe Skutnik and coaches Ty Perrault and Pat Bramer do not have a boy on the Pittsfield AL team that Saturday will play for the New England title and a berth in the Little
