1964 University of Maine baseball team...

The 1964 University of Maine baseball team will forever be remembered as one of the most accomplished teams in Black Bear history. Under Jack Butterfield's leadership, the Black Bears captured the Yankee Conference championship, defeated Northeastern in the District One playoffs before advancing to Maine's first-ever NCAA College World Series appearance. The Black Bears advanced to the final round of the World Series, along the way defeating national power Southern California, defending national champion Arizona State, and Seton Hall. Pitcher Joe Ferris went undefeated in three NCAA games and was named the College World Series Most Valuable Player. Captain and third baseman David Thompson hit safely in every game and joined Ferris on the All-College World Series team. Overall, the Black Bears finished the season 21-8 and were represented on the Yankee Conference All-Conference team by Dick DeVarney, Lanza and Ferris.
