WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The U.S. Golf Association's "Rules of Golf" runs more than 160 pages long.   On Thursday, Massachusetts golfers got a few more rules to follow, courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic and the commonwealth's social distancing restrictions.   Local officials say the game's devotees will be ready to do whatever it takes to get back on the course.   "We're ready," said Eric Mabee, the head pro at the Country Club of Pittsfield.   "[Social distancing] is going to be up to the players. That's their civic duty to maintain that."   It will be impossible for the courses themselves to

NECBL had to weigh the well-being of players and the logistics of trying for a postponed season before making the decision  to cancel.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The directors of the New England Collegiate Baseball League waited as long as they could to hold a vote no one wanted to take and affirm a decision that was largely out of their hands.   "We wanted to be a ray of hope for our communities, but the ramifications of doing so felt reckless," NECBL Commissioner Sean McGrath said on Saturday morning.   Instead, the board Friday had the responsible but unenviable task of informing the league's players, fans and communities that it would not be

The commonwealth’s premier road race may be shut down, but that will not keep down Berkshire County’s running enthusiasts.   Monday should be marathon day in Massachusetts, but the 124th running of the Boston Marathon has been postponed until at least September by the Boston Athletic Association in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.   On Saturday, Gov. Charlie Baker recognized the loss of the event.   “This year, while the race will not be taking place on Monday, the sentiment, I think we all feel here in Massachusetts on marathon Monday remains true: Massachusetts is strong, we are resilient, and we can run any marathon anybody wants us to run,” Baker

CHESHIRE, Mass. — The two-time state champion Hoosac Valley girls basketball team is sending a dual message with the video it created for social media this month.   Like a lot of basketball teams, the Hurricanes have caught the craze of posting a video montage of players who cannot gather in one place but can virtually unite as a ball is passed from outside the frame to each team member and then relayed to the next, who catches and passes in their own backyard or driveway.   The videos are a fun take on the concepts of social distancing and staying connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.   Hoosac Valley coach Ron Wojcik decided to put a different spin on

CHESHIRE, Mass. — Xander Bogaerts will have a chance to lead his team back to the playoffs.

Aaron Judge will continue his assault on the home-run record book.   There will be a baseball season in 2020. And it will open sometime in early April.   At least in Cheshire it will.   For more than four decades, the World Baseball League has used Strat-O-Matic Baseball to bring the game home for brothers Jeff and Matt Chaput and a group of friends who have tested their baseball IQs against one another and fate to see who is the best at managing a virtual team of very real Major Leaguers.   Strat-O-Matic, which began in 1961, combines the statistics of current players with

The Hoosac Valley girls basketball team was going hard in practice.   Then, it got some hard news.   “I think it was Averie [McGrath]’s dad who came in and told us,” Ron Wojcik said. “We read the announcement to everyone. It was pretty weird at that point. Surreal was the word that came to mind.”   Surreal, but not wholly unexpected.   Late Thursday afternoon, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association announced that all of this weekend's state championship games in basketball and hockey are canceled due to concerns about COVID-19.   That means that Wojcik’s Hurricanes and the boys and girls basketball teams from
