The motto of the Cape Cod Baseball League is: "WHERE THE STARS OF TOMORROW SHINE TONIGHT!" Top college baseball players from all over the country come HERE to find out if they are ready for the "big leagues!" Even knowing this, I was surprised to hear our teenage son tell us that 29 of the 40 first round draft picks this year were alums of the Cape Cod Baseball League! That's some statistic!
We who live year-round on the Cape often take for granted some of the most special things about our home and the Cape Cod Baseball League certainly falls into that category. Their first game in June is always the true herald of summer. But today begins the play-offs and we have yet to attend a game this summer!!! How did that happen??
Not too late though! Beginning this final week, there are two games today - one this afternoon at Cotuit (vs. Wareham) and one tonight ata Orleans (vs. Chatham) The play-offs proceed through the weekend. For details of upcoming games, click on this link! The Cape Cod Baseball League . Play ball!
