WILBRAHAM, Mass. -- Things went wrong in a hurry for the Pittsfield Post 68 American Legion Baseball team in the late innings on Tuesday night.   But as his team slowly made its way into the gloaming at Spec Pond Recreation Area, coach Pat Bassi pivoted to thoughts of everything that went right in the program over the better part of a decade.   “A lot of these kids have played for me since they were 13, when I was still coaching Babe Ruth, so there’s a lot of history with us,” Bassi said after a 7-3 loss to Greenfield in the Western Massachusetts Senior Legion tournament.   “We just didn’t have it tonight.”   And Bassi knows what it is

DALTON, Mass - Sunday’s performance was exactly the sort of thing that Berkshire Force 12U coach Jess Glebus hoped for, at exactly the right time. Just days ahead of a big trip to Florida to compete in the Babe Ruth World Series, the Force earned the Dalton CRA Softball Tournament title with a 10-0 win over the Saratoga Thunder, at Pine Grove Park.   Amanda Pou threw a no-hitter and every batter in the lineup reached base to contribute in the victory. Only one Thunder player reached base, and she was quickly thrown out by catcher Issabelle Macdonald and she attempted to steal second.   “We played Chatham yesterday and we didn’t play well, but we came out today

DALTON, Mass. -- Sunday was graduation day at Pine Grove Park.   Not the cap-and-gown and valedictory address variety. But it was a day for goodbyes for some members of the Berkshire Force travel softball program, which played its last 16-and-under tournament of the season.   And went out in style.   Mia Alfonso went 3-for-3 with a home run, a triple and four RBIs, and Kiki Carrigan struck out six while allowing just three hits and pitching the Force to a 10-1 win over the Greylock Thunder in the championship game of the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Alfonso, a rising sophomore at Pittsfield High, is one of the younger players on the team with a couple of

WESTFIELD, Mass. -- The Pittsfield Babe Ruth Baseball 15-year-old All-Stars Sunday saw their season come to an end with a 15-2 loss to Keene, N.H., in the New England Regional at Bullens Field.   The New Hampshire state champions pounded out 12 hits and put the game away with an eight-run sixth inning, handing Pittsfield its third loss in three games of pool play.   "Although the results not what we wanted or expected, we played three very solid teams and very good baseball," Pittsfield manager Bryon Sherman said. "We had a tough draw, but we gave away some outs and at bats.   "That said, we played until the last out each game."   Keene scored

DALTON, Mass. -- The Berkshire Force 10-and-under team Sunday scored 14 runs in the bottom of the first en route to a forfeit win in the title game of the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Mia DeJesus earned a perfect game of sorts, striking out the side in the top of the first.   After the Force rolled to its big inning in the bottom of the frame, its opponents from Latham, N.Y., threw in the towel and went home.   A.J. Pelkey and Madison Barber each had a pair of hits in the tournament-winning rally.   Earlier in the day, Pelkey hit a two-run homer in the Force' 8-0 win over Chatham, N.Y., to get to the title game.   Sunday's tournament win was

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- It is a sign of how good this Pittsfield Little League American Division All-Stars team is that it took a three-run sixth inning to extinguish all hope in an eventual 8-0 season-ending loss on Sunday afternoon.   But Holden got that three-spot, in part because of a two-run single by Sam Perry, to wrap up a convincing win in the championship game of the Section 1 10- to 12-year-old Massachusetts tournament.   Until he singled to right to cap that three-run rally, a dangerous Americans team was still very much alive -- even with just three outs remaining.   “Because this team -- they always fight, they don’t give up,” Pittsfield coach Matt

DALTON, Mass. -- Overheard on Saturday morning in the Berkshire Thunder dubout at Pine Grove Park: "Oh my God, it's hot."   And it was.   Maybe not quite as hot as the weatherman had predicted, but it was sticky. And everyone had their own approach to beating the heat at the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Some brought pop-up tents. Most enjoyed time at the cooling stations set up by the CRA staff. One program -- from the Pioneer Valley -- decided to skip the event altogether. The Thunder stormed to a three-inning win to get off the field as fast as possible.   The Berkshire Force and ACS Swat 16-and-under teams? They decided to play a game

ROCHESTER, N.H. -- Will Kinne scored on a two-out error in the bottom of the sixth to break a 6-6 tie and send the Pittsfield Babe Ruth 14-year-old All-Stars on to a 7-6 win over Nashua, N.H., on Saturday at the New England Regional Championships.   The winning rally started when Jake Hall drew a leadoff walk. He was eventually erased trying to score from third on a ground ball, but Kinne already had reached on the second Nashua error of the inning.   Kinne went to third on Nick Guachione's two-out single and scored when Collin Merwin reached on an error.   Tyler Gaudette retired the side in the order in the top of the seventh to earn the win after going to the hill in

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Dave Wildgoose ripped a single up the middle in the bottom of the sixth to score Anthony Hill Friday and give the Pittsfield Little League American Division All-Stars a 5-4, come-from-behind win over Agawam in the 12-year-old sectional tournament.   Cam Harrington and Mitch Hall each singled in the seventh-inning rally, which started with the visitors clinging to a 4-3 lead at Deming Park.   "I just tell them to stay confident," Pittsfield manager Matt Stracuzzi said. "We're a confident team, and I just keep preaching to those guys: Just be confident. Don't get down on yourselves.   "Just because we're down a run or two, it
