Chris Fitzgerald, General Manager of the Falmouth Commodores joined Something More with Chris Boyd to talk about the Cape Cod Baseball League and the Commodores.
The Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) is comprised of 10 teams. They play 44 games per season (June and July) and the top 4 in each division go to the playoffs. 1 in 6 MLB players played in the Cape Cod Baseball League.
Each team recruits 30 NCAA players from around the country. It’s a moving target with some players coming late due to college playoffs, some getting selected to play in Team USA, some getting drafted in the MLB. This year 26 Commodores players were drafted.
The Commodores organization is supported by coaches, interns, a Board of Directors, volunteers, host families, and sponsors. Games are free and the organization is entirely run on donations from fans and sponsors. Plus, the team participates in community events and every home game recognizes a different community organization.
This is the Cape Cod Baseball Leagues and the Falmouth Commodores 100-year anniversary since they were officially formed in 1923.
