Making his pitch for greatness …
Rockland native Rising inducted into Maine Baseball Hall of Fame


PORTLAND — Rockland native Elmer Rising, 1906 to 1987, will be posthumously inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday, July 23 at 2 p.m. in the 47th annual ceremony and banquet at the Holiday Inn By the Bay

As a sophomore at Rockland High School, he first demonstrated his incredible baseball talent. In the first game he pitched for Rockland, the season-opener against Vinalhaven, he struck out 22, winning the game 4-2.

Rising, who died in 1987 at the age of 81, went on to set the Maine high school pitching record by striking out 26 in one game.

Then, three days later, he pitched a no-hit, no-run game. He averaged two strikeouts per inning in high school.
