MCLA's New Named League's Pitcher of Week for Third Time this Year

Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- For the third time this season, MCLA's Bobby New has been selected as the MASCAC pitcher of the week.
 
The Pittsfield High graduate earned the honor twice in March for the Trailblazers. Sharing weekly honors with New was Andrew Miller of Worcester State. He was tabbed the conference's player and rookie of the week.
 
New put together two outstanding performances this week, both against Mass. Maritime. His week began on Friday by tossing a nine inning complete game shutout against the Bucs. He struck out 10 batters to earn his first win of the weekend.
 
Unexpectedly, New came back on Sunday out of the bullpen and tossed three more scoreless innings against MMA. He earned the win when MCLA walked off in the ninth inning.  He allowed just 9 hits on the week.
 
New is now 4-3 on the season for MCLA. He is now tied for third in the league with four wins.
 
MCLA is back in action on Tuesday when it hosts Fitchburg State.

Giorgi League Christens New Noel Field Court

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com Sports
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Berkshire County's newest sports venue opened with a couple of close games on Monday night as the John Giorgi Summer Basketball League christened the new courts at Noel Field.
 
IBerkshires.com edged Fortitude Strength and Conditioning, 49-41, in the first game, and Rivers Lawn Care/Timeless Training got past Swish, 56-50, in the nightcap.
 
The first games on the newly resurfaced outdoor courts were to be played on Sunday, but rain forced that night's action inside the North Adams Armory.
 
League organizer Al Giorgi this spring posted a schedule that tentatively called for the league to open on June 16, though he said at the time he was not sure whether the courts would be ready.
