Limited Tickets On-Sale For Cape League Hot Stove Event On July 12th
Cape Cod, MA – The Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) will be hosting a Hot Stove Event on July 12th at 6:30pm, to benefit the “Bring Back the Hall” campaign. The event will be held at the Moose Lodge in South Yarmouth, MA.
The Hot Stove Event will feature Hall of Fame journalist Peter Gammons and World Series Champion Ron Darling discussing all of the hottest news across the baseball and Cape League landscape.
Tickets to the event will cost $50, but are extremely limited, with just over 100 remaining to the general public. You can purchase your tickets now, while supplies last, by clicking here.
Proceeds from the event benefiting the “Bring Back the Hall” campaign will help the league push towards its goal to establish a permanent home for the CCBL Hall of Fame building. The league has secured a building on Route 28 in South Yarmouth it hopes to be the future home of the CCBL Hall of Fame. The building will allow fans to have an engaging experience with all of the league’s history.
The CCBL Hall of Fame Committee was formed in 2000 and has inducted members annually. Currently, there are 179 inducted members in the CCBL Hall of Fame, with the most recent Class of 2022 being highlighted by current Chicago Cubs Marcus Stroman and Ian Happ. Other inductees over the years have included: Frank Thomas, Thurman Munson, Jeff Bagwell, and Nomar Garciaparra.
“When asked, I always say the same thing about my summer on the Cape in 1980. It was the greatest summer I ever spent playing baseball,” said Ron Darling. “The Cape League has always blended the greatest amateur competition with the innocence and romance of the game. Please help us keep this beautiful part of Americana thriving.”
The Hall of Fame building will be a year-round destination for both Cape Cod residents and visitors.
The league’s current impact on the Cape Cod economy exceeds $3 million annually, according to the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce. This campaign and investment into the future of the CCBL Hall of Fame will significantly boost that impact year-round.
