Most People Don’t Know There’s A Little Major League Ballpark In Maine

Face it, sports fans: Maine will never have a Major League Baseball team. When your biggest city has a population of 67,000 (the smallest Major League city, Cincinnati, has a population of 300,000) teams aren’t exactly going to be pounding on your door with relocation opportunities. No, we’ll just have to settle for the minor league Portland Sea Dogs, and, of course, having the Boston Red Sox a few hours away. Oh, and one other thing: Did you know that Maine has the only two officially licensed replica Major League ballparks in America?
