  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — From excessive heat to scrapes to cancer, the latest generation of artificial turf has been accused of being a safety risk that is unacceptable for use on athletic fields like the one being contemplated at Mount Greylock Regional School.   Even proponents of the turf will concede the first two points, admitting that "turf burn" abrasions are a real and that synthetic surfaces do get hotter than natural grass.   But reports of higher cancer incidences among athletes with long-term exposure to synthetic surfaces are highly anecdotal and do not stand up to scientific scrutiny, proponents say.

WILBRAHAM, Mass. -- North Attleborough's Justin Neidel hit a ground-rule double down the right field line to give his team a 13-3 walkoff win over Sheffield Post 340 on Saturday at the American Legion Junior Baseball State Tournament.   But Sheffield will be ready to walk back into the thick of things on Sunday at Spec Pond in an elimination game in the eight-team tourney.   "If this was a normal game and not a tournament, we had two other guys who were pitchers who could have come in and kept it closer," Sheffield coach Jesse Carpenter said. "But we had to keep two guys for tomorrow."   Sheffield, which just finished its Western Mass tournament on

Tight races abound in the Berkshire Adult Baseball league, where just one game in the loss column separates the top three teams in the over-35 division and the top two teams in the 20-year-old division.   A key game in the 35s comes on Sunday in Lenox, where the first-place Berkshire Thunder (9-2) takes on the third-place Berkshire Bandits (7-3).   The division's second-place team, the Adams Aces (7-2) has two games in the next five days, playing Tunnel City at Alcombright Field on Wednesday and the Greenridge Gremlins at the Dalton Legion field on Sunday.   Last week in the 35-year-old division, Jarrett Bayliss threw a no-hitter to lead the Dalton Moneymakers past the

DALTON, Mass. -- The Berkshire Force 10-and-under team Sunday scored 14 runs in the bottom of the first en route to a forfeit win in the title game of the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Mia DeJesus earned a perfect game of sorts, striking out the side in the top of the first.   After the Force rolled to its big inning in the bottom of the frame, its opponents from Latham, N.Y., threw in the towel and went home.   A.J. Pelkey and Madison Barber each had a pair of hits in the tournament-winning rally.   Earlier in the day, Pelkey hit a two-run homer in the Force' 8-0 win over Chatham, N.Y., to get to the title game.   Sunday's tournament win was
