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.
