Midcoast high school baseball and softball teams have been diligently working — indoors when necessary and outdoors when possible and weather allows — as the regular season quickly approaches.

A few local teams began their regular seasons in recent days, but most start for real the week of April 18-23.

The following photos are from preseason games with Messalonskee of Oakland at Camden Hills and Belfast at Georges Valley on April 14 and Skowhegan at Medomak Valley on April 15.
