In honor of the Little League World Series going on now in Pennsylvania, here's a picture from when I was 9 or 10 years old.
Sports taught me a lot, especially at a young age. You, hopefully, learn to fight through the struggles and enjoy the success.
BTW, "Big N" was a big department store on Route 20 in West Pittsfield. It's been a big empty spot for at least 20 years. That fact doesn't dampen the fond memories.
