If you’re a baseball lover, you know that there’s more to the game than the National and American leagues. After all, baseball has been a backyard, empty lot, game for over 100 years. It’s been played by kids and adults alike all over of the nation — especially in the summer and fall!
Well, if you’re a true baseball lover, one of the best ways to celebrate the game itself is to see some great ball played by the Cape Cod Baseball League. And when you come to catch a game (or two, or three), the absolute best place to stay in the Cape Cod area is the Lighthouse Inn. But more on that later…
For now, let’s talk baseball!
About the Cape Cod Baseball League
If you love the idea of classic baseball, you’ll love the Cape Cod Baseball League. Unlike most other amateur leagues in the nation, the Cape Cod Baseball League actually uses wooden bats (although they used aluminum bats from 1974 to 1984).
It all started back in the late 1800s. In 1885, the Cape Cod Baseball League was founded. Almost all of the players were World War I veteran GIs around the year 1919. Later, in the 1940s, veterans were a big part of the team as well, but local and regional college players also started to become members. In 1963, the NCAA officially sanctioned the league.
The league is now in its 133rd season. Each season features 44 regular games as well as a postseason, which features quarterfinal, semifinal, and championship rounds to see who the big winner is. There’s also an All-Star game in July. The entire league comprises a 10-team loop, and college players from around the nation play here!
