Waldoboro — The Waldoborough Historical Society will celebrate the role that baseball has played in the town’s history with an extensive exhibit of sports artifacts on Sunday, July 13.

Through the efforts of trustee Bill Maxwell, numerous newspaper clippings, uniforms, cards, shirts and posters have been assembled. Five notebooks filled with information on Clyde Sukeforth, Waldoboro and Medomak Valley High School teams, Waldoboro town teams and coed softball, American Legion baseball and Babe Ruth baseball, plus Little League baseball and softball, have been assembled and will be on view.

The museum will open at noon and a special program will begin at 1 p.m.

Mark Biscoe will discuss Waldoboro’s early baseball activities. He will be followed by Lou Cook, who will give an overview of town teams. Lanny Winchenbach will discuss the state Class B championship MVHS team of 1970, while Kyle Santheson will give Little League baseball and softball information.

Eugene Sukeforth, a distant cousin of Clyde Sukeforth, will share his memories and knowledge of Clyde’s role in Major League baseball.

Light refreshments will be served and the public is welcome. The program is free.

Courier Publications' sports staff can be reached by email at sports@villagesoup.com or by phone at 594-4401.
