Two of the things I love most in the world - Cape Cod and the Red Sox. In the summer, they join together in magical ways.
The Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) is one of the high points of a Cape summer. Small, intimate ball parks, great local flavor, excellent baseball, and future MLB stars. These young college players aspire to develop from CCBL to MLB! It is exciting to watch.
In honor of Opening Day for the Sox this year, we complied a list of CCBL players whose dreams came true. These baseball idols made it to the bigs, and are currently on our favorite team! Did you see any of them play on the Cape?
Travis Shaw - Bourne 2010
Brock Holt - Cotuit 2009
Jackie Bradley JR - Hyannis 2009
Brandon Workman - Wareham 2009
