The Cape League will showcase videos from Cape League games during the past several years at its exhibit and will be the sixth straight year the national’s top amateur summer league will be in attendance.
CCBL president Judy Scarafile stated that, “It’s very important that the Cape League participates in the clinic. It’s a wonderful opportunity to touch base with our sponsors and fans during the off-season. It is very well-attended and well-organized by (former Red Sox and Cape League catcher) Roger LaFrancois.“
