Mainers on Hand for Pope Mass 

Scores of Mainers were at Yankee Stadium Sunday, but they weren’t there to catch a baseball game.

They were at the ballpark to attend a public Mass celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI on the final day of his six-day visit to the U.S.

One hundred people from Maine were given tickets to the event on a first-come, first-served basis.

Sheila and Peter Sullivan of Bridgton are among the Maine residents who were going to the service. Sheila Sullivan calls the pope’s visit a wonderful opportunity to be close to &quot:the holiest man on Earth.&quot:
