New League: Regency Mortgage Wooden Bat League

Postby Tom Nolette » Thu Jun 22, 2017 4:45 am

New summer baseball league offers a change-up
A new wooden-bat league for high school players offers an alternative to American Legion ball.

... “You could do both before but one of the teams was going to be short-changed,” said Coach Derek Soule of Greely, the only non-SMAA team involved in the new league. “Kids do both but Legion takes the hit where you’re missing half the games because you weren’t playing Saturday doubleheaders. This gives us more flexibility in scheduling away from weekends so players who want to play in the showcase circuit can do those.”

D’Andrea said he has 10 players involved in summer travel baseball and now they can play in the showcase events without missing any league games.

The Regency Mortgage Wooden Bat League consists of nine teams – Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, Greely, Windham, Westbrook, Gorham, Bonny Eagle and Deering – all of which previously had players on American Legion teams. The new league is limited to players who will be returning to high school; recent graduates are not allowed, unlike in American Legion ball. Batters use wooden bats instead of the composite bats used in high school games. Teams play an 18-game schedule that will culminate with a league championship at Hadlock Field on July 30.

New wooden bat summer league a hit for players and coaches

...The league is for underclassmen only, players are instructed by their high school coaches and making things even more unique, the bats are wooden, not aluminum.

Year one is underway, nine teams are taking part and two of the state’s most storied coaches are thrilled with the auspicious beginning.

“All the programs involved are happy,” said Mike D’Andrea, the varsity coach at Scarborough High School, who is coaching the Nova Seafoods squad this summer, featuring Red Storm players. “All the coaches have a say in how the league is run. It’s exciting. This is next year’s varsity team. and now, I get to see my freshman and JV players too. Before, I couldn’t see them. To these guys, every game counts because they’re playing in front of us. I’ve been pleasantly surprised.”

Baseball: Bonny Eagle, Greely split a double-header, Rangers taking second game hugely

CUMBERLAND – Bonny Eagle and Greely traded blows in a double-header on Monday, the former taking the first game 9-3 and the latter taking the second game 9-1. The Scots moved every man in their lineup once around the bases in the first game, while Ranger Will Neleski posted a particularly strong performance in the second, crossing home four times.

“Obviously we were hitting,” said Greely head coach Glen Cyr of the difference between the first and second bouts. “We made contact in the first game where we didn’t make it in the second game. The first (Bonny Eagle) pitcher had a better curveball than the second pitcher, and most kids at this age, they’re fastball hitters…But we were (also) better on the bases; we were smart, ran the bases well…Errors, we didn’t have many errors in the second game; first game, I think we had four.”
