Did You Know There’s A Mini Major League Ballpark In Maine?
And no, we're not talking about Hadlock Field. It's a little farther north. Maine's little major league ballpark is in the Central Maine town of Oakland.
According to Only In Your State, Maine's Fenway is a 66% replica of Boston's famed ballpark. It even has a replica of Fenway's hand operated scoreboard and a mini Green Monster.
It was built by the Alfond Youth Center in honor of minority Red Sox owner Harold Alfond. Alfond's dream was to bring baseball programs to the youth of Central Maine. In the summer, the field hosts baseball camps that are often coached by former major league players.
Actually, there are TWO mini major league parks in Maine. Mini-Fenway in Oakland and a mini-Wrigley Field in Waterville
