As usual, there are many talented, top teams in the Camden Adult Coed Softball League as this summer's leaders begin to take shape with the playoffs on the horizon in mid-August.

Two of those high-level squads — in fact, the only unbeaten teams — squared off on Wednesday night, July 31 at the Camden Snow Bowl.

When the dust settled on the game for first-place bragging rights — at least at that point — Free Press Redwings had grabbed the headlines with a 7-2 victory over the Yandell Construction Hammerheads.

However, two nights later, Free Press saw its unblemished mark go by the wayside as the Knox County Benchwarmers bested the 'Wings 13-5. That allowed Maine Cat to take over the top spot as it and Benchwarmers are tied with the best overall records at that point.

Since then, Free Press has pushed its way back to the top as the regular season winds to a close.

The league has been popular with young and old for decades and this summer appears to have 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 league standings, as of Aug. 12, showed: Free Press Redwings, 11-1, .917; 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, 6-6, .500; Northeast Concrete, 6-6, .500; Smokin’ Rokys, 6-7, .462; Steel-Pro, 6-7, .462; Feener Pride, 4-8, .333; DX, 3-10, .230; Myrtle Mayhem, 3-10, .230; Bonnie’s Place, 1-12, .077; and CedarWorks, 0-13, .000.

Interestingly, the runs scored and allowed for each team show a pattern for those at the top of the standings and those at the bottom. The numbers reveal: Free Press, 113 scored, 58 allowed; Hammerheads, 175 and 57; Maine Cat, 130 and 53; Benchwarmers, 222 and 40; Willey Wharf, 134 and 66; Baggers, 110 and 102; Northeast Concrete, 127 and 104; Smokin' Rokys, 132 and 88; Steel-Pro, 116 and 95; Feener, 81 and 62; DX, 89 and 221; Myrtle, 85 and 180; Bonnie's, 60 and 265; and CedarWorks, 48 and 231.
