Five Town Little League


Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Hope and Appleton.

Greetings from the Five Town Little League Board of Directors. 

We serve children living in Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville, and Rockport, ages 5-12, who seek opportunities to play organization baseball and softball while building the values of good sportsmanship and good citizenship.

We welcome your volunteering assistance and look forward to seeing you out at the park.


Rick Thackeray, Five Town Little League President

[Sep 18 2018]   Softball Field Project - Support today!

We are excited about a new opportunity that will help grow softball for girls throughout our Five Town / Camden Hills community!  We hope you will help that opportunity take shape.

We have approval to transform the Hope Elementary School field into a regulation Softball field.  This will provide a home field for our H.A.L. Middle School team (combined 6th, 7th, 8th graders from Hope, Appleton, and Lincolnville community schools) and provide a second, regulation field for use by our Five Town Little League softball and tee ball teams.

Town funding is limited, but we are fortunate to have lined-up a crew of volunteers who have helped with basic site work and will perform the work to transform the infield.  Nevertheless, we need to raise funds to bring this plan to life.  We need to reach our Phase One fundraising goal of $1,500.00 by the end of October 2018.  Please consider making a donation to help us meet that goal.  Here’s how you can help:

  • Please make checks payable to “Five Town Little League,” mark “H.A.L. softball” in the memo line, and mail your check to:  FTLL, P.O. Box 1426, Camden, ME 04843
  • Donate on-line through our Five Town Little League website:  Click the “Donate Now” button on the main page and follow the instructions.  All donations received on the FTLL website through October 2018 will be applied to the H.E.S. / H.A.L. softball field project

We hope you will help us meet our goal of improving the Softball experience for our whole Five Town Community!  Join in the excitement and contribute today.
