BANGOR – Seven years, seven championship games.

That’s the legacy of the Downtown with Rich Kimball team in the annual Wayne’s Wiffle for a Wish wiffleball tournament. The event – created and organized by Wayne Harvey as a fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation – marked its 10th year on Aug. 18. It’s a wonderful event that has raised nearly $100,000 for a remarkable cause over the past decade.

But we’re here to talk about the legendary run of Downtown.
