Bob Corradi: Hall of Fame class of 2020
The retired energetic athletic director and baseball coach at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy has performed myriad invaluable services to the Cape League for many years. In 1988 when Bourne and Brewster came into the Cape League, Corradi and CCBL Hall of Famer Jack Aylmer founded the Bourne Braves franchise, which played home games at Massachusetts Maritime. The CCBL created a pre-season tryout to be held annually for players from New England, and Corradi arranged for those day-long tryouts to be held at MMA’s facility. When the Cape League organized the Hall of Fame in 2000, Bob was one of seven original voting members, and is still an active member. Corradi won three state titles as an American Legion Post 188 coach and four New England crowns coaching Cape Cod Senior Babe Ruth. He received the CCBL Fred Ebbett Lifetime Achievement Award (2012), New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association Jack Butterfield Award (2005), and Andy Baylock Award (2012). He was the NACDA Div. III Athletic Director of the Year (2012) and was inducted into the MMA Athletics Hall of Fame (2016). Bob played baseball at Moravian and graduated from UMass-Amherst. His son Steven Corradi (UMass-Amherst) was a Cape League All-Star infielder for the Bourne Braves in 1990.
