The Brewer Baseball Team played their 1st home baseball game at Heddericg Field in Brewer since the Spring of 2022, hosting Bucksport on Tuesday, April 9th. The game ended in a 4-4 tie.

The game had special significance given that Jerry Goss, the long-time Brewer City Councilor and Principal of Brewer High School, who passed away in December was a driving force in the fundraising and renovation of Heddericg Field. His grandson plays for Bucksport.

Jerry Goss' son and David Utterback, the Brewer High School Athletic Director threw out the 1st pitches.
