chase doyle throws the ball

Mount Greylock's Chase Doyle started on the hill for Sunday's MIAA Division V showdown against Lenox. 

WILLIAMSTOWN — The scoreboard said one thing, but Mount Greylock baseball coach Rick Paris and his players knew that the opening-round game in the MIAA Division V tournament wasn’t as lopsided as the final score.

“Those guys weren’t hitting it hard, but they were getting the barrel [of the bat] on the ball and getting it over the infield,” Paris said.
