NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — College graduates are frequently sent off with a charge of doing their best and making the world a better place.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Retired professional pitcher Ryan Cameron was back in Williamstown on Thursday to share some life lessons with the third- through sixth-graders at Williamstown Elementary School.   But when he opened the floor to questions, the first one he received looked to be a little off topic.   "How much money did you make?" asked the first child he called upon.   The career .119 hitter handled the curveball with aplomb.   "That's a good question," Cameron said, before quickly turning it around.   While we tend to hear about today's Major League Baseball players in terms of the size of their contracts, that is not
