Cancelled: UMaine Red Sox Spring Training Game

In the classic baseball movie “A League of Their Own,” Tom Hanks’s character scolds his players after a tough loss by screaming “There’s no crying in baseball!” Well, we’re not so sure.

It’s now evident that Spring Training games will not start on schedule due to the ongoing labor dispute between Major League Baseball’s owners and players. And that means our March 3rd alumni event at the Red Sox’s Spring Training home in Fort Myers won’t take place as planned. You will receive a full refund of your payment next week.

We share your disappointment. Like you, we were looking forward to reconnecting with Black Bears and friends at JetBlue Park. Please contact Erica Wolfe at should you have any questions.

Thanks for your interest in the event and your continued support for UMaine.

Best wishes,

John N. Diamond ’77, ’89G

President and CEO
