Cape League Baseball from a Kid's Point of View
Written by Michael, Age 11 of Barnstable, Massachusetts
Attending Cape League Baseball is fun and exciting for boys and girls of all ages. The players are
the best players from colleges all over the U.S.A. Cape League has
10 different teams and each has their own park in towns that spread from Bourne to Orleans. There are
two divisions, the east and the west. My favorite park is Eldredge Park which is home field to the Orleans
Cardinals, but my favorite team is the Hyannis Mets. Some teams have mascots. Homer is the mascot
for the Falmouth Commodores;
Mr. Cardinal is the mascot for Orleans. The Hyannis Mets have the best hotdogs I have tried
so far. It is fun to try to catch the balls that go into the bleachers, and at every park they give out
rewards to whoever turns in a foul ball.
The Cape League is non profit, so at every game there is a 50-50 raffle
to raise money for the teams expenses. Admission is free, but please make a donation.
Bring your family some time to a Cape League game. Also, bring a baseball to get signed because a lot of the players that
were in Cape League have made it into the MLB, (Major League Baseball). For example, Kevin Millar, Todd Walker, Nomar, Jason
Giambi, Doug Marabilli, Barry Zito, Mo Vaughn and tons more. For more information go to
Cape Cod Baseball. If you want to see some pictures from a
