Local Baseball Fans Find Friends with Foreign Teams
The biggest crowds at the senior league world series gather when the local team is playing. But some area fans come to see others play too. Tim Throckmorton has that story.Kevin Booth lives in Bangor, but he makes sure to watch every game that Hilo, Hawaii plays. Kevin Booth â€“ Bangor Residentâ€œIâ€™ve been a fan of the senior league WS since it came to Bangor in 2002. When the Hilo team came to Bangor for the first time in 2007 I got to know the team and the fans they gave me a pin and a necklace and so when the team came this year I introduced myself and became a fan again.There is a kinship in the sport of baseball and you and baseball is a universal sport. Where ever you are from, Aruba or the Philippines or Hawaii you just have that kinship.â€Kevin didn’t get much sleep last night. He was up late singing karaoke with the parents of the Hilo team. The boys from Hawaii won this morning 10-0.
