HENRICO, Va. — On Thursday night, the Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars will get down to business.   On Wednesday afternoon, the mood was light as the squad held what is sure to be its last full practice of the season.   They kidded one another about their shoes, they reminisced about past games and past tournaments, someone came up with the notion of reviving old Little League dugout chants for Thursday's World Series semi-final, but that idea did not get much traction.   They were, for perhaps the last time in this current incarnation, the tight-knit sports family that has pulled together to achieve great heights in a game devotees call "the ultimate

HENRICO, Va. — Robert Gyurjan says he is fortunate.   And he is … if good fortune means driving 500 miles from home and paying for a hotel room where you can work late into the night on a computer keyboard.   "i'm lucky enough that I can work remotely," Gyurjan said while watching his son Sam and his teammates practice on the baseball field at Hermitage High School outside of Richmond. "i brought two monitors and a laptop, and once the day's activities are done, I log on and I work at night to keep up with everything."   Robert Gyurjan is part of a large group of parents and other family members who made the trip to the Old Dominion

GLEN ALLEN, Va. -- The Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars Friday came back from an early three-run deficit to earn a 6-5 win over the Mid-Atlantic Champions from Williamsport, Pa., in their first game at the World Series.   "It was a little nerve-wracking," Pittsfield Manager Ben Stohr said.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars have scored 100 runs in eight games between the Western Massachusetts and New England championship tournaments.   That does not happen without production up and down a very potent lineup.   "You've got someone like Andrew Hammill who, you know, he's a pretty unassuming and quiet guy, but he's just been hitting the ball really hard," Pittsfield coach Ben Stohr said this week.   "We feel like, top to bottom, whatever nine or 10 guys we put out there all bring something to the table. Really, all 14 of them all belong on this team. They've put together competitive at-bats, and

PITTSFIELD, Mass. – Cale Rathburn made the only save of a penalty kick shootout on Wednesday night to send the Crows past the Maroon to claim the summer championship of the Pittsfield Soccer League.   The Crows saw a 1-0 lead evaporate in the closing minutes of the second half but rallied to hold off the Maroon through two five-minute overtimes to get to the shootout.   It was 4-4 going into the fifth round of PKs before Rahburn, who made six saves in the 50-minute regulation time, got all of Camilo Bermudez’ attempt to give the Crows an opening.   Reinaldo Castro then sealed the deal with a low liner past Maroon keeper Jeff Egan, who guessed the wrong way on his

PITTSFIELD, Mass. – A ride through the city on a fire truck, a ceremony on the steps of City Hall with the mayor, TV cameras from the local news station out of Albany, N.Y.   It’s a lot for a group of 13-year-olds.   And it is all very much deserved.   But as Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13-and-under All-Stars Manager Ben Stohr was putting his team through its final full practice at Deming Park before leaving for this week’s Babe Ruth World Series in Virginia, he also was thinking about how to make sure his players do not get overwhelmed by the moment.   “Balance is definitely the key,” Stohr said about an hour before the team loaded up on a
