Husson senior following father’s success in college baseball

BANGOR, Maine — When Dick Whitten was coaching the Waterville High School baseball team, he would see the bookbag fly over the fence onto the field.

That meant his son, J.T., had arrived from elementary school.

“When I was 7 or 8 years old, I would go catch fly balls with them, and I would get to take batting practice,” J.T. recalled. “My dad got me into baseball. I looked up to him when I was growing up.”

The time he spent with his dad and the Purple Panthers paid off. J.T. Whitten was a standout three-sport athlete in high school and has put together an impressive college baseball career at Husson University in Bangor, just like his dad did at the University of Maine.
