Outstanding news! Top notch facility...I would hazard a guess you will see LOTS more fans/local support from this most recent fan free 2017 tourney. Great for UMaine and surrounding area.

UMaine chosen to host 2018 America East baseball tournament

...UMaine hosted several NCAA Northeast Regional baseball tournaments in the 1980s when the Black Bears made five of their seven College World Series appearances. In addition to 2004, UMaine had also ran the tournament in 2002 and 1996.

“This is a big win for the university. It is the most suited institution to host it,” said UMaine interim head baseball coach Nick Derba.

In addition to the 4,400-seat FieldTurf facility, Biberstein pointed out that they also can utilize the adjacent Mahaney Dome, the Mitchell Batting Pavilion and the New Balance Field House for teams’ preparation.

Funny how the BDN failed to mention the best post-season baseball tourney that UM ever hosted....the 1991 NCAA Northeast Regional. I remember it fondly because I worked it. Was also one of the greatest UM teams of all-time....Mark Sweeney, Andy Hartung, Larry Thomas, etc, etc. Then you had Clemson, Mississippi State, Villanova, Princeton, and Towson visiting Mahaney....all at one time. I remember the RVs with Clemson and Mississippi State flags flying in the parking lots, Stephen King giving us high fives in the stands, 3-4K fans filling Mahaney every time Maine played.....yup, those were the days!

they sure were. if I remember correctly, they were one win from going to the CWS during this regional, the legit and true current regional way. (minus the current and recent super regional format of course)

Yup....I believe that they had 3 wins including one over MSU.....but couldn't beat Clemson (would have had to beat them twice).
