Midcoast Little League baseball and softball organizations continue to plan for ways to safely and effectively hold youth baseball and softball seasons this spring/summer during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and Oceanside, for one, has adopted a "wait-and-see"-approach to the issue.

Davin Putansu, president of the league, said Oceanside, at this point, has not decided on a plan for the season, but league officials communicate often about any and all possibilities to offer the program this spring/summer.

Oceanside Little League includes teams/youngsters from Rockland, Thomaston and Vinalhaven, among other smaller area communities.

"Our board of directors have been in contact with each other via email," Putansu said. "While we are all obviously hoping this clears up and we can get back on our fields, with the uncertainty of how things are, we are not prepared to set a time frame for starting the 2020 season at this time. We have been brainstorming ideas as to how we might be able to have a successful season, if we are able to play. Unfortunately, we are still in 'wait-and-see' mode at this point.

"A survey was recently sent out to the Oceanside Little League community about how they felt about the current situation and their feelings about going forward with a season. We have had a tremendous amount of feedback. We will be taking this feedback along with other area leagues' plans, and recommendations from the state and [Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention] into consideration when the time comes to make a decision on our season."
