Little League pulls World Series from Bangor

bangor loses series_img5485The Senior League Baseball World Series, which has made its home at Bangor, Maine’s Shawn T. Mansfield Stadium since 2002, is moving to Easley, South Carolina.

Little League International announced the move Friday afternoon after the organization’s board of directors voted to dissolve the Big League Baseball program and cap Little League participation at 16 years of age. Big League Baseball had been for players ages 15 through 18. Senior League Baseball is for players ages 13 through 16.

“For 15 years, the city of Bangor has been a wonderful host of the Senior League Baseball World Series, and words cannot express our sincere gratitude to our tournament director Mike Brooker, his fellow volunteers, and the entire city for their support,” Little League President and CEO Stephen Keener said in a statement.

Keener said Easley had the edge over Bangor to keep a World Series because of the South Carolina city’s “more central location, with easier transportation options for all participants, families, and fans.” He also cited available dormitory housing for players at Clemson University.

Excitement was in the air for Saturday’s nationally televised world championship game. The Southern Mariners, of Melbourne, Australia, matched up against Clear Ridge L.L., Chicago, Illinois, to determine a champion. The Southern Mariners looked to get revenge on Clear Ridge, which handed the Asia-Pacific champs their first loss of the summer. However, the U.S. Central champs rose to occasion on the likes of Zach Verta’s arm, winning a world championship 7-2 in this one.

It was U.S. Central’s first World Series title since Urbandale L.L., Urbandale, Iowa, won in 2005.

Verta had everything working for him, including his bat at the plate. Verta batted in his team’s first run on a double to left field in the bottom half of the first.

On the mound, Verta was in command with a great fastball and curveball all day.
