Into the seventh week of regular-season play, things have grown increasingly interesting in the Midcoast Adult Coed Softball League with a majority of teams bunched in the middle of the standings and a few, led by once-beaten Bayview Bushwhackers, leading the charge as games head into the final stretch.

The decades-old league, which started in the late 1970s, is in the full swing of things with new teams and plenty of historic squads in the fold for the summer of 2021.

The teams in the 13-team league, also known at Camden Coed, which runs through nine weeks (Aug. 13) for regular-season play, include: Bayview Bushwhackers, Feener Pride, Free Press Redwings, Smokin’ Rokys, Walter J. Read Carpentry, French & Brawn Baggers, Knox County Benchwarmers, DX, Steel-Pro, Willey Wharf, Northeast Concrete, Maine Cat and Bonnie’s Place.

Bushwhackers and Walter J. Read are new, while most others have been involved with the league for years, none longer than decades-old French & Brawn.

Maine Cat is the defending champion.

Games are held at Jaycee Park on Old County Road in Rockland, former Rockport Elementary School site off Route 1, Camden Snow Bowl and Lincolnville Central School. Occasionally, a game also is played in Thomaston under the lights.

As of Friday, July 30, the regular-season standings were: Bayview Bushwhackers, 11-1, .917 winning percentage; Feener Pride, 10-2, .833; Knox County Benchwarmers, 8-3, .727; Free Press Redwings, 8-4, .667; Walter J. Read Carpentry, 7-4, .636; French & Brawn Baggers, 7-4, .636; Maine Cat, 4-4, .500; Steel-Pro, 5-5, .500; Smokin’ Rokys, 5-6, .455; Willey Wharf, 3-7, .300; Northeast Concrete, 2-10, .167; DX, 1-11, .083; and Bonnie’s Place, 0-10, .000. (Sorted on winning percentage won, head-to-head, run differential, runs against.)
