NORWALK, Conn. -- Patrick Rindfuss threw 6-1/3 innings of one-hit ball, and the Pittsfield Babe Ruth 14-year-old all-stars Sunday edged Tri-County, Maine, 6-5, to stay alive at the New England Regional.   Rindfuss pitched around four errors before giving the ball to Steve Zuccolo, who picked up the last two outs to earn the save.   Nick Hall hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the fifth to lead Pittsfield's offense.   "It was not a pretty affair," Pittsfield coach Bryon Sherman said. "We need to play better defense, or we're going to have a short visit to the elimination round."   Sunday's win gave Pittsfield a 1-2 record in pool play.

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

"Actually, we only had two bad innings. They scored four in the third and six in the fourth. Between those two innings, we had six errors, which is uncharacteristic for our group."   Patrick Rindfuss and Shane Bernardo split time on the mound for Pittsfield, which got singles from Michael Grady, Michael Britten and Shane Zuccolo.   "It was not pleasant game this morning, but we expect to be

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Of the many supporters of the LaFesta Baseball Exchange, none comes up in conversation with co-founder George Canales more than former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.   So it was particularly concerning to Canales when the five-term mayor was AWOL in the moments leading up to the 2003 game in the North End.   "I said to [Boston's] John Romano, who started the exchange with me, 'Where's Mayor Menino?' " Canales recalled this week. "And he said, 'Don't worry. He'll be here.'   "All of a sudden, an ambulance came onto the field. They opened the back, and Mayor Menino came out on a
