Cape Season gets underway June 20


Next Sunday, June 20 will mark exactly 681 days since the last pitch of a Cape Cod Baseball League game.

For the record, Cotuit’s Casey Schmitt came on in relief to throw that final pitch, inducing Harwich batter Max Marvsac to line sharply to shortstop Adam Oviedo, who stepped on second to double off Riley Tirotta and clinch the 2019 championship for the Kettleers.

The 10-3 victory over Harwich marked the record-setting 17th overall Cape Cod Baseball championship by the franchise from the village of Cotuit.

Last season’s stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic marked the longest period without baseball in the Cape League since the hiatus between 1939-45 due to World War 2.

Are we ready for some baseball? You bet we are!

Our two local teams – Hyannis and Cotuit – will kick off the season with the remainder of the teams in the league on June 20 with Cotuit hosting Wareham at Lowell Park at 5 p.m., while Hyannis travels to Bourne at Doran Park at 6:00.

Quest for the Cup: The annual Patriot Cup series will begin on Monday, June 21 with Hyannis playing host to Cotuit.
