The commonwealth’s premier road race may be shut down, but that will not keep down Berkshire County’s running enthusiasts.   Monday should be marathon day in Massachusetts, but the 124th running of the Boston Marathon has been postponed until at least September by the Boston Athletic Association in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.   On Saturday, Gov. Charlie Baker recognized the loss of the event.   “This year, while the race will not be taking place on Monday, the sentiment, I think we all feel here in Massachusetts on marathon Monday remains true: Massachusetts is strong, we are resilient, and we can run any marathon anybody wants us to run,” Baker

CHESHIRE, Mass. — Xander Bogaerts will have a chance to lead his team back to the playoffs.

Aaron Judge will continue his assault on the home-run record book.   There will be a baseball season in 2020. And it will open sometime in early April.   At least in Cheshire it will.   For more than four decades, the World Baseball League has used Strat-O-Matic Baseball to bring the game home for brothers Jeff and Matt Chaput and a group of friends who have tested their baseball IQs against one another and fate to see who is the best at managing a virtual team of very real Major Leaguers.   Strat-O-Matic, which began in 1961, combines the statistics of current players with

NORTH ADAMS, Mass — Justin Kruszyna began skating again after 16 years off the ice when his two young sons first started playing hockey two years ago. So it was only fitting that sons Tyler and Bradley were there on Saturday afternoon to watch their dad play with the rest of the Northern Berkshire Youth Hockey League Alumni against the Boston Bruins Alumni.   The Kruszyna family is just one example of all the magic that was created at Peter W. Foote Vietnam Veterans Memorial Skating Rink on Saturday, as a packed house enjoyed a friendly battle between their local hockey heroes and notorious members of the Boston Bruins Alumni. Things were close at the break, before the Bruins

  FRANKLIN, Mass. — The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association this winter will be asked to decide whether to implement a statewide playoff system for most sports, abandoning the current structure of four sectional tournaments producing semifinalists who play for a state title.   On Thursday, four members of the MIAA's Tournament Management Committee held an open press conference call (in which iBerkshires participated) at the association's office to explain the system, which the committee says is the best way to address two concerns the state hears from stakeholders: schools forced to play larger teams in sectional tournaments and the
