BY GLENN JORDAN..CAPE ELIZABETH — David and Karen Brenner said they were initially skeptical about opening their home to a young professional athlete they didn’t know. They’re not “baseball crazy,” David said, and they have a daughter, Grace, 13, about to enter eighth grade.

Portland’s Ken Joyce is living the dream
The baseball life still burns brightly for Maine native Ken Joyce after a two-decade career in professional baseball.

BY GLENN JORDAN ..A growing pile of black and orange duffel bags waited to be fed into the exposed cargo belly of a long motorcoach late Sunday afternoon as Ken Joyce shared a final few moments with family members in the parking lot between a now-empty Hadlock Field and the Portland Expo.
