  • Throwback Thursday: It’s baseball season (almost)

    While everyone is hoping for the baseball fields to be clear of snow soon, we found this photo of a Boothbay Harbor Grammar School championship team. Register editor Kevin Burnham played against many of these players in Little League in 1969 and said several of these players “could really play.” You might know that red haired female manager kneeling in the front row. She now does her “pitching” at the dump. How many others can you recognize?
