Jim Higgins - League Executive

An administrative jack-of-all-trades, Jim Higgins first volunteered with the Cape League in the 1970’s as an official scorer. Over the next 40 years, Higgins dedicated his time and energy helping build the CCBL into the best collegiate summer baseball league in the country. His numerous roles included official scorer, league publicist, and Senior Vice President. He sat on the Finance, Broadcasting, Safety and Bylaws committees, and was a founding member of the CCBL Hall of Fame. Higgins was instrumental in the expansion of the CCBL from eight teams to 10, with Bourne and Brewster joining the league in 1988. In 2017, he was awarded the Fred Ebbett Lifetime Achievement Award for integrity, contributions and mentorship to the league. In recognition of Higgins efforts to better the Cape League and Cape Cod Community, his friends, family, and colleagues at RogersGray established a grant to name the new theater in CCBL Hall of Fame Museum in his name.
