The Maine Moose, a youth baseball team from the Hampden area, will be heading to the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, in August to compete in the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame Invitational Tournament.

The Maine team has players ages 11-12 who will play during the week of Aug. 27 at Cooperstown Dreams Park, a complex which consists of 22 lighted fields. The Moose are guaranteed seven games, weather permitting, and will earn a seed to play in a single-elimination championship tourney.

The team will visit the Baseball Hall of Fame, trade pins and stories with players from across the United States and have their team records and photographs displayed in Cooperstown’s American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Moose applied for a berth in the invitational tourney and were one of 104 teams randomly selected to compete in the Aug. 27 tourney. Weekly tourneys are held at Cooperstown from June 4 to Sept. 2, when more than 1,300 teams will compete.

The Moose players are from Hampden, Newburgh, Winterport, Carmel and Hermon.

The players are Sam Knott, Max Polo, Connor Adams, Logan Scripture, Libby Hughes, Wyatt Gogan, Jaykob Wildman, Jacob Lorenzo, Kameron Hale, Ethan Phelps and Ryan Adams.

Their coaches are Matt Polo, Amy Knott and Ray Knott and their umpire is Dennis Farnham Jr.
