It’s that time of year again; we’re heading out to the stadiums to watch our favorite baseball teams in action, be it the Red Sox or a local Little League chapter. We revel in the smells, the sounds, and the history. Baseball has been part of American society for several centuries. It is that universal appeal that makes baseball so much a part of many peoples’ experiences of summer.
The Maine Memory Network online exhibit, Summer’s Favorite Game, features images from many Maine Memory contributing partners throughout our state, all of whom share the spirit of the game.
And for even more old-time baseball, live on the field, join us for a very special event on Saturday, June 30th at Fort Williams park. Playing according to 1861 rules and customs, the Essex Base Ball Organization team of Massachusetts will square up against Augusta’s Dirigo Base Ball Club for 11AM and 1PM games.
