NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — As the New England Collegiate Baseball League season nears its end, the North Adams SteepleCats will welcome former Negro League and Major League Baseball player Pedro Sierra as a special guest at their last Sunday home game of the season on July 22nd.

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1938, Sierra joined the Negro Leagues at age 16 as a member of the Indianapolis Clowns in 1954. The following three years Sierra spent time on the Detroit Stars, one of the four remaining Negro League teams at the time. As the Stars didn’t have a stadium of their own, they played in Briggs Stadium, the home of the Detroit Tigers, when that team was on the road.

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?' " Canales recalled this week. "And he said, 'Don't worry. He'll be here.'   "All of a sudden, an ambulance came onto the field. They opened the back, and Mayor Menino came out on a

LACONIA, NH. —It seems as if it’s come to the point in the season where the SteepleCats have thrown everything but the kitchen sink from the mound.

For their last meeting of the season, the Winnipesaukee Muskrats hosted the North Adams SteepleCats on Thursday night in a battle of northern division squads. The SteepleCats, low on arms, had three position players take the hill in what turned out to be a high scoring contest where the Muskrats held off a 9th inning rally by North Adams for a 9-8 victory.

Unlike the SteepleCats game prior against the Upper Valley Nighthawks, the offensive production began right away for both teams. After outfielder Greg Cavaliere reached on a walk,

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Peter Greenbush cannot tell you the scores of his games in the LaFesta Baseball Exchange, and that's not just because the games were played a quarter-century ago.   "I honestly remember it like it was yesterday," Greenbush said this week. "The field in Boston sits right on the bay there. It's an unmistakable right field fence that's 50 feet high. I remember the food they cooked for us, the parade they did for us.   "When they came up here, I remember eating tons of food here and developing friendships and bonds with kids who had never seen grass before, let alone the mountains.   "It's something that at 13

HARTFORD, VT. —For the third time this year, the SteepleCats have learned very well why there’s the saying “It ain’t over till it’s over”.

In their first of three matchups over the next five days, the SteepleCats traveled up to Maxfield Sports Complex on Wednesday to take on the Upper Valley Nighthawks. After North Adams was just out away from a big division win, the Nighthawks pulled off some 9th inning heroics to defeat the SteepleCats 5-4.

In his seventh appearance on the mound for North Adams, Chris Cepeda manned the hill for the SteepleCats at the start of the game. After escaping a bases-loaded jam in the 1st, the Nighthawks were able to strike
