Last weekend in South Boston there was plenty of energy being expended on the playing fields and in the gyms, as youngsters played in softball, baseball and basketball games. From the Tynan gym to Moakley Park, kids from South Boston and the Boston area were busy competing, being with friends, and enjoying the outdoors.
