BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – For the first time in almost two years, Bangor’s historic Mansfield Stadium had a baseball game, with fans allowed, and there’s just something about baseball …
Take me out to the ball game
“It’s great right now, we don’t care what the weather is like, it’s baseball,” said Mansfield Stadium field director Ron St. Pierre. We spent the last two weeks very yelling and trying to get the course in as good a condition as we possibly can. It is actually in good condition right now. ”
Take me out with the crowd.
“Throughout the year, Bangor has not seen a live sports game with a crowd. Baseball is the first time we’re done it since we were out, says Bangor pitcher Brad McLaughlin, “Only a lot of energy comes into play.”
Return to Mansfield Stadium. The return to the cottage for so many baseball fans and players alike.
“Just great, the sound, the sound is amazing,” said baseball fan Will Farnham, “Good to see the players out there running and comforting. Oh yes, this is it. ”
The hard year is over,
“Oh yeah, I’ve been waiting the year to waste the pile in a real game,” said Bangor pitcher Colton Trisch, “so I was really excited to get off the pile at last.”
Doing opening day means so much more. Even if you’re just there to catch bad balls
“Hey, what do you think? Really good, “says baseball fan Rusty Mutty,” Did it work out? Yes. For a catch right there …. thanks! It was pretty amazing? Do you feel good now? Yes. Back to baseball, right? Yes, I can even give this to my dog. ”
Whatever brings you to baseball, it’s back.
“It’s obviously a year since high school games,” McLaughlin says, “I do not know that I just enjoyed being out there.”
