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

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

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- In light of the recent conversation surrounding systemic racism in the United States, the Williams College track and field and cross country teams united to raise money for the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) and the Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance.     "I thought that this was a really good way to be actionable," pole vaulter Cris Young said. "Williams is a private institution that holds a lot of wealth in and of itself, but I knew a lot of members of the Williams community are often in a financial place to be donating whether it's $5 or $300."   The Equal Justice Initiative is a nonprofit organization that is committed to
