Baseball has been called America's pastime. Whether that is still true is fodder for debate. Yet over 50 years ago, there was no doubt which sport captured the imaginations of most Americans, and in particular, the sports fans of Maine. For the first time, "When Towns Had Teams" takes the reader back to the days when semi-pro and town team baseball was king. Representing the towns, teams, and players who made this period special and unique, it is must reading for anyone who loves Maine, baseball, and the heritage of this truly special time from our past. By Jim Baumer. Paperback, 287 pages.
