The Cape Cod Baseball League is kicking off it's 134th season on Monday, June 10th!
It all began in 1885...and most of the early players in the league were actually returning war veterans! The influx of good, college talent kicked in when the NCAA finally sanctioned the league in 1963.
So, to celebrate the beginning of the season, Kevin Matthews had Cape Cod Baseball League Commissioner, Eric Zmuda and the league's Director of Broadcasting, John Garner, in studio to talk about the history of the Cape Cod Baseball League! What are the requirements to be a Cape League player, how are the team personnel (GM's, managers, coaches, etc.) chosen each year, how does it all work behind the scenes, what is the role of host families in the system...they touch on these topics and more!
And, they'll reminisce about some of the CCBL alumni that made it big in the majors...like Chris Sale, Jackie Bradley, Jr., Matt Barnes, Mitch Moreland, Aaron Judge, Kris Bryant, Joe Kelly & More!
Remember, Cape Cod Baseball League games are FREE! What a great way to give your family a chance to see the next generation of players in Major League Baseball right in your own backyard!
