FALMOUTH, Mass.— No team has won the Cape Cod Baseball League Championship more than two years in a row since the Cotuit Kettleers four-peat reign from 1972-75. This was until the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox clinched their third consecutive title on Saturday August 13, 2016.
The Red Sox featured many standout players in 2016. Kevin Smith (Maryland) was named the Pointstreak Playoff MVP with 6 runs, 10 hits, 7 RBIs and a .370 batting average in 7 post season games. Smith was also chosen for the East Division All-Star team along with Matt Winaker (Stanford), Tyler Houston (Butler), and Bryan Pall (Michigan). A standout on the mound during game three of the Championship Series was Bryan Sammons (Western California). Sammons threw 6 shutout innings against the Commodores getting 6 strikeouts and only allowing 2 hits.
