DALTON, Mass. — After 3,000 games and tens of thousands of judgment calls, Rich Pothier is a fixture on Berkshire County baseball diamonds and a walking advertisement for the recruitment of young umpires.   Moments before stepping behind the plate for his milestone 3,000th career game on Saturday, Pothier sounded as enthusiastic as ever and not the least surprised that career has lasted this long.   "Strangely enough, yes," Pothier said when asked whether he thought he would be umpiring well into his fifth decade. "Because I've loved it right from the first day I did it. I could envision myself doing it.   "I didn't have any talent as a

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — As a dad, Stephen Nesbit knows how difficult the COVID-19 pandemic has been for youngsters.   As an officer in the North Adams Soccer Club, he can do something about it.   "I'm a father, I have a 9-year-old and a 16-year-old," Nesbit said on Thursday morning. "Kids have been trapped in the house since March. They want to get out and run around with their friends. We're giving them a responsible option for that."   The NASC and its corresponding youth groups throughout the county are working to put together competitive opportunities for players of all ages, up to and including high schoolers, who likely will not have the

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Committee on Tuesday voted to move football and soccer to the so-called "Fall II" and to allow golf and cross country to go ahead with precautions.    The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association last week released final guides for fall high school sports in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The concept of a Fall II had been approved earlier for football and other high contact sports to be played  between February and April.   "It would basically run dates to be determined but between the winter, and the spring season so for our district probably mid-March to the end of April," said Athletic

But their coaches did not say anything about not taking a bad outcome into the field.   In the top of the fourth inning on Tuesday at Deming Park, Anton Lazits was on third base with one out when Stevie Zuccolo lofted a fly ball to right. Lazits came home for what appeared to give the Pittsfield Storm a 6-1 lead over the South County Navy in the title game of the Berkshire County Babe Ruth 16-18 league.   But as the next batter dug in at the plate, South County pitcher Jack Carpenter tossed the ball to third for a successful appeal that Lazits left early, and the inning
