SANFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - UMaine baseball missed out on the NCAA tournament by just one game. A trio of Black Bears will now try to make up for that this summer when they suit for the Sanford Mainers.
Amongst the trio of the New England Collegiate Baseball League squad is the lone Pine Tree representative, Deering alum Sam Balzano.
The sophomore outfielder is joined by junior infielder Troy Black and freshman Charlie Butler.
The Mainers manager Aaron Izaryk also has UMaine ties as a former player and assistant coach.
Sanford opens their season at Goodall Park Thursday at 6 pm against Holyoke.
