    MDI boys, girls finish 2nd in opening track meet

    After a long wait, opening day for the Mount Desert Island baseball team was twice as nice — in more ways than one. Between offensive firepower, solid pitching and good defense, MDI put it all together Saturday in the team’s season-opening doubleheader against Presque Isle. The Trojans defeated the visiting Wildcats 9-4 in Game 1 and claimed an 11-0 win via the mercy rule in Game 2 to complete a sweep of both contests and start the year 2-0.

    Usually a stolen base is something to celebrate in baseball, but there is nothing to celebrate this time, or the last two times it happened.  For the third year in a row, Acadian Youth Sports has had the bases from at least three of the fields on Park Street stolen. To replace them is an expense of at least $1,000 each time.
