When Towns Had Teams is a comprehensive history of town team and semi-pro baseball in Maine, from post-WWII, until the present day.While the professional game is all that is talked about today, there was a time when town team baseball was the centerpiece of communities across the state, particularly the smaller towns.While certainly a record of the towns, teams and players that competed on diamonds all across the state, it also reflects the small-town values and sense of community that was a big part of rural America.
