While Midcoast Little Leagues have held regular seasons this spring, the summer will have a different look — and feel — for youth baseball and softball.

Of the five Little League organizations in the Midcoast — four of which fall into the MaineStay Media/Courier Publications/VillageSoup coverage area — most will not participate in playoffs or summer all-star tournaments for various reasons.

Oceanside Little League, which draws from Rockland, Owls Head, South Thomaston, Cushing, St. George, Thomaston and Vinalhaven, will not have town playoffs or participate in the District 2 tourney, which normally follows the league championships.

OLL will offer an alternative for summer baseball for players in its program.

“This summer, our league will be offering an informal ‘sandlot’ baseball program,” said OLL president Chris Barstow. “Our summer sandlot program will be a player-led, unstructured opportunity for our Major League-aged kids, with the goal of providing a fun, relaxed, activity for players. Kids will make the rules, make the lineups, and make the calls.”

The program, open to all major league baseball and softball players, will be adult-supervised with basic equipment including balls, bats, helmets and catcher’s gear provided.

Play dates will be at the Thomaston Athletic Field at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 7; Monday, July 12; Wednesday, July 14; Monday, July 19; Wednesday, July 21, Monday, July 26; and Wednesday, July 28.

Five Town Little League, which draws from Camden, Rockport, Hope, Appleton and Lincolnville, will have baseball playoffs, actively ongoing, with the championship scheduled for Wednesday, June 23.

FTLL softball will not have a championship as there are only two teams in the league and spend time scrimmaging softball teams from OLL this spring. However, the two FTLL softball teams will face off to conclude the regular season on Wednesday, June 23.

FTLL also will not participate in the District 2 tourney.

Waldo County Little League will have baseball playoffs — with the championship game set to be played on Tuesday, June 29 at 5:30 p.m. — at a venue yet to be determined.

However, WCLL also will not participate in the District 2 tourney.

Medomak Valley Little League will hold playoffs and championships and participate in the District 2 event.

In addition, with Lincoln County, the fifth and final league in District 2, also opting out, MVLL baseball and softball teams will be named district champions by default and advance to the state tournaments.

The dates for the state tournament have not been announced.

Dana Verge, District 2 administrator, said the only state tournaments to be held this season will be 11-12-year-old baseball and softball. Typically, 9-10 baseball, 9-10 softball and 10-11 baseball also hold state tournaments.

The MVLL softball championship was on Tuesday, June 15, though the “if” game of the double-elimination playoffs was forced, so the teams also will play on Thursday, June 17.

The MVLL baseball championships will be Thursday, June 17, with the “if” game slated for Friday, June 18.
