Print Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Tracey Babcock, a seasoned Residential Site Manager for Brain Injury Services, and the current BCArc Employee of the Year 2024, has been promoted to Residential Supervisor.
 
In this new role, she will join a team of supervisors who each oversee a range of residential programs. Tracey has been with BCArc for more than 13 years, spending most of her time working in the Brain Injury Residential Programs, specifically with individuals requiring intensive personal and medical care.
 
"BCArc is lucky to have someone with this kind of compassion, combined with great management and leadership skills," said Maryann Hyatt, President & CEO. "I am confident that Tracey will be an excellent supervisor."
 
Tracey is known for advocating aggressively for the individuals in her program. In one example, she traveled to a nursing home in Boston to advocate for a former individual from her program.  
 
"She has no family," Tracey said at the time. "No one is advocating for her at the nursing home. She is non-verbal and she deserves better treatment than she is getting. If I could go more often I would. This is family for all of us, this is what we all do for each other. I will continue to travel to Boston until I get her in a program that treats her properly."

Piretti Walkoff Hit Lifts Hot Dog Ranch to PIttsfield Little League Title

By Leland BarnesiBerkshires.com Sports
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Matthew Piretti drove in the winning run in the bottom of the sixth as Hot Dog Ranch rallied from behind for the walkoff win in the championship game of the Pittsfield Little League on Friday.
 
Sawyer Layne struck out eight hitters in three innings on the mound and hit a game-tying homer to lead off the sixth as Hot Dog Ranch took a 4-3 win over East Side Cafe to decide the first title of the newly unified Pittsfield LL.
 
East Side Cafe took a lead early at Clapp Park when Hector Reyes drove in a pair of runs with a shot to center field to make it 2-0.
 
Hot Dog Ranch threatened in the bottom of the frame with a walk and a double, but East Side's Mike Ressler (eight strikeouts) ended the threat with back-to-back Ks.
 
In the second, Layne took away two hits from East Side Cafe with back-to-back fielding plays, and his offense rewarded him right away.
 
Troy Choquette drove in a pair of runs to tie the game after three.
 
In the fourth, Choquette moved to the mound with the bases loaded and got out of the jam to keep it a 2-2 game.
