Mendel and the Mike: Thoughts on the landscape of sports in Berkshire County; NBA returns

Jake Mendel and Mike Walsh, of The Berkshire Eagle sports department, return to a sports scene that is much different than it was five months ago. The guys discuss the possibility of professional sports pushing through the COVID-19 pandemic, different sports currently happening in Berkshire County and share some thoughts on what a fall sports season may look like in Western Massachusetts.

As a lifelong Pittsfield resident, Jake gravitates to the nearest field or park. He joined The Eagle as a paperboy in 2005 and worked his way up, becoming a full-time reporter in 2018. He's on The Eagle's express desk and is found on Twitter @JMendel94.
