Ken Lilley AND Pete Haigis of Scarborough HS.

Eddie Phillips of Deering HS - unhittable but sometimes wild.

Glen Ronco of Bonny Eagle HS - unhittable , won a lot of 1-0, 2-1 games for an otherwise mediocre team

Former Deering High star and Red Sox pitcher Ed Phillips dies at 73
Phillips, who also starred at Colby College, played for Boston in 1970.

...Phillips built the foundation for his pro career pitching in Maine. He had a 22-5 record in three seasons at Deering, followed by a 16-5 record at Colby under Coach John Winkin. Phillips signed with Boston in 1966 for $9,000, two days after graduating from college. Two years later he pitched a perfect game for Class A Winston-Salem.

Phillips, a 6-foot-1 right-hander with a three-quarter arm motion, didn’t overpower hitters, using a strong breaking ball and pinpoint control.

“Speed wasn’t his forte,” said Paul Pendleton, a Deering teammate. “Eddie had great control. He rarely walked a hitter. If he walked one or two in a game, that was it. He kept his composure and if a player made an error, Eddie would bear down that much more. It was always about the team.”
