QUINCY, Mass. -- For the second game in a row, a late Post 68 rally fell short, and the team bowed out of the double-elmination American Legion state tournament with a 5-3 loss to Shrewsbury on Monday afternoon.   Shrewsbury led, 5-1, after five innings, but Post 68 rallied with two out for a pair of runs in the top of the seventh before succumbing.   Shrewsbury drew first blood with a run in the bottom of the first.   Post 68 tied it two innings later thanks to singles by Ian Benoit, Jack Cooney and Hunter Potash to load the bases and a fielder's choice off the bat of Joe Cracolici to score Benoit.   Shrewsbury regained the lead with three in the fourth inning and

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds knows mountain biking is an emerging industry. But, he also knows people who drive through the Berkshires to get elsewhere for it.   "Mountain biking has been identified as an industry that is growing and we are well positioned for it," Hinds said.   According to New England Mountain Bike's Berkshire County Branch President Alison McGee, there are hundreds of great mountain biking trails throughout Berkshire County.

DALTON, Mass. -- The Dalton CRA Invitational Softball Tournament has grown four-fold in nine years, and there is one reason why.   "The biggest thing is just the volunteers," CRA Director of Recreation Dustin Belcher said. "I have an incredible committee of people who really give so much time and effort -- most of them do not have kids playing this weekend, but they've been here since their kids started, and they've kind of stuck it out.   "They've focused on all the other stuff so I can focus on recruiting and getting teams here."   It is a 15-person committee that helps Belcher stage the event, which got under way on Friday night and

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Of the many supporters of the LaFesta Baseball Exchange, none comes up in conversation with co-founder George Canales more than former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.   So it was particularly concerning to Canales when the five-term mayor was AWOL in the moments leading up to the 2003 game in the North End.   "I said to [Boston's] John Romano, who started the exchange with me, 'Where's Mayor Menino?'
