BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The first pitch was thrown at Mansfield Stadium in Bangor...kicking off this year's Senior League World Series.

Ten teams will go head to head in a ten day competition for these players ranging from 13 to 16 years old.

Local team, Hampden, will face off against 5 other teams from around the U-S and a few international teams.

In recent years, attendance has reached anywhere from 35 to 40-thousand.

Tournament Director, Mike Brooker tells us each team brings at least 20 people -- meaning not just a great opportunity for the players... But some extra intake for the community.
