The league has been popular with young and old for decades and this summer sparked an increase in interest among the 14 teams.

Games in the league are Monday through Friday, late-June through late-August, at four fields: Camden Snow Bowl, Lincolnville Central School, Rockport Elementary School and Jaycee Park on Old County Road in Rockland.

The final regular-season league standings showed: Free Press Redwings, 12-1, .923 winning percentage; Yandell Construction Hammerheads, 11-2, .846; Maine Cat, 11-2, .846; Knox County Benchwarmers, 11-2, .846; Willey Wharf, 10-3, .769; French & Brawn Baggers, 6-7, .462; Smokin’ Rokys, 6-7, .462; Northeast Concrete, 6-7, .462; Steel-Pro, 6-7, .462; Steel-Pro, 6-7, .462; Feener Pride, 5-8, .385; DX, 3-10, .231; Myrtle Mayhem, 3-10, .231; Bonnie’s Place, 1-12, .077; and CedarWorks, 0-13, .000.
