Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13s Headed to New England Regional

Community submissionPrint Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- One year after the Pittsfield American Little League All-Stars came within a game of going to Williamsport, most of the players from that group are poised to make another run -- this time as Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars.
 
The Pittsfield 13s next week head to Stamford, Conn., for the New England Regional and a shot at the Babe Ruth World Series later this summer.
 
To prepare, the team cruised through a travel schedule in the Eastern New York Baseball League, going 10-1 and outscoring opponents 104-22 along the way.
 
Evan Blake leads the Pittsfield 13s with an eye-popping .800 batting average and five home runs. He has 20 hits and 24 RBIs this summer.
 
Nick Brindle collected 13 hits and 11 RBIs for a .448 average, and Anthonio Scalise is batting .417 with nine RBIs.
 
Three other members of the team are hitting .300 or better: Owen Salvatore (.318), Christian Salzarulo (.300) and Walker Abdallah (.333).
 
Blake has been the ace of the pitching staff, compiling a 5-0 record. Salzarulo (2-0), Cam Sime (2-0) and Brayden Gutzmer (1-0) also are undefeated.
 
The PIttsfield Babe Ruth 13s include 10 players from last year’s state champion Pittsfield AL squad, four players from the Pittsfield National League and one player from Hancock.

BHS Diabetes Education Program Launches Weight Loss & Lifestyle Change Program

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Health Systems Diabetes Education Program has implemented a Weight Loss and Lifestyle Change Program for those with Medicare, with new classes beginning in November, at multiple locations across the Berkshires.

The program is aimed at adults 18 and older who have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes by a blood test within the past year. To be eligible for this program, participants must have a need to lose weight, with a Body Mass Index of 25 or higher. The program involves 16 weekly classes over the first six-month period, and six monthly sessions over the remaining six months, for a year-long program. Participants must also be willing to log food that they eat and their activity minutes. This program is covered by Medicare.

To apply for the program, call 413-395-7942. A representative from the BHS Diabetes Education Program will take down information and complete the pre-diabetes risk assessment questions. A lifestyle coach will then contact eligible participants to discuss the program and confirm acceptance.
