Welcome to our Volunteers, Fans and Supporters,

As  you have heard, Cape Cod Baseball League Executive Committee voted unanimously on April 24, 2020  to cancel the 2020 season.  This decision was debated over several  weeks with great passion. Since that time many of the Northeast Summer league have followed suit.

So you may ask, “What does the league do the rest of the year?”  We continue to have our meetings and discuss what next year will bring for the league.

A positive note is the change in the MLB draft for this year  and next.  With the number of rounds limited to  five or ten , the number of athletes  choosing college instead of pro ball could rise.  If this should happen, we could  have even more  talent available.  This could also increase more multiple season players.   This could repeat in 2022 as well.

Another  event that has happened is the start of the Cape League Podcast, check them out on our website. There will be many more episodes  to come throughout the summer. We continue to  have great stories of past seasons to keep everyone thinking of the league.

At this time we are planning  our Hall of Fame induction ceremony in November.  Stay tuned  for  our announcement of who will be inducted.

 The league and the ten  individual franchises continue to work hard to make the 2021 season best  ever. We can hardly wait.

Please stay healthy and safe and we hope to see you in 2021
