Brewer baseball team played its 1st home game since 2018

The result wasn’t what Logan Levensalor and the rest of the Brewer High School senior baseball team wanted Monday night, but even in a 12-4 loss to Bangor, the Witches veteran did something they’d never experienced before: play a game on their home field.

Because baseball and softball games between the two Cross River rivals were played at adjacent fields barely 200 feet apart, an estimated 1,000 people from neighboring communities attended.

But while the Coffin Field softball complex has remained one of the premier facilities of its kind in central and northern Maine, not only as the brewer’s home for the sport, but also as the annual host of regional and state championship events, neighboring Heddericg Field has seen almost none Baseball activity since 2018 due to drainage problems leaving the outfield wet for most of each spring due to a typical winter’s melting snow.
