Bangor players who fell short of state baseball title earn another chance in Legion tourney

Bangor players who fell short of state baseball title earn another chance in Legion tourney


Regular-season success is nice, but Bangor Senior American Legion coach Dave Morris sees it largely as merely a means to a championship goal.

His Bangor High School baseball team finished fifth in the final Class A Heal points this spring. Then the team surged to its sixth regional championship in the last eight years before narrowly missing a sixth state crown during that span when South Portland edged the Rams 3-2 in that final by scoring the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Many of those same players now loom as contenders in the Maine Senior American Legion tournament that begins Saturday at Husson University in Bangor after the Bangor Comrades earned the No. 1 seed in the North Division with a 4-1 victory over local rival Quirk Motor City on Tuesday night.
