Join us for Opening Day ceremonies, as the Cape League schedule opens with five games on Friday, June 10, 2016.
The premier amateur baseball league in the nation since 1885, the Cape League embarks this June on one of its most exciting slates to date, featuring a 44-game regular-season schedule and an action-packed postseason made up of best-of-three quarterfinal, semifinal and championship series. Among the highlights will be the 2016 Cape League All-Star game on Saturday, July 23 at Veterans Field, home of the Chatham Anglers. If you’re interested in memorabilia, be sure to stop by the Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame exhibit at the JFK Museum in Hyannis.
The Cape Cod Baseball League celebrates its 131st season in 2016 and continues to provide fans with competitive baseball entertainment in which the country’s top college players display multidimensional skills in their purest form.
After being populated mostly by GIs returning from World War I in 1919 and WW II in the late 1940s, the CCBL continued to be populated by a combination of local and regional college players until 1963, when it became officially sanctioned by the NCAA.
With more than 1,100 all time alumni performing at all levels of professional baseball in 2015, a record total 292 former Cape Leaguers populate major league rosters, including New York Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury (Falmouth 2004), former Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum (Harwich ’05), slugging first baseman Mark Texeira (Orleans ’99), AL Manager of the Year Eric Wedge (Yarmouth-Dennis ’88), AL Comeback Player of the Year Carlos Pena (Harwich ‘96 / Wareham ’97) former Cy Young Award winner Barry Zito (Wareham ’97 & ’98), former AL batting champion Nomar Garciaparra (Orleans ’93), former NL Fireman of the Year Billy Wagner (Brewster ‘92) and New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi (Cotuit ’84).
The Cape League is recognized as the best amateur summer leagues in the country by college coaches and professional baseball scouts. Players from across the USA and representing all college divisions are recruited to play in the 10-team loop.
Seeing your favorite team is never a problem. Teams are located in Bourne, Brewster, Chatham, Cotuit, Falmouth, Harwich, Hyannis, Orleans, Wareham and Yarmouth-Dennis.
