From Cape Cod to the MLB
With the Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) playoffs wrapping up this weekend, we took a look back to see who the current top ranked MLB players are who got their start in the CCBL. Unknown to most of the population is the fact that over 1,000 Major League Baseball players were drafted right from the CCBL! According to MLB.com, of the top 55 Major League Baseball players from 2014, five All-Star players originated from the Cape League.
If you were fortunate enough to take in a Cape League game this summer, it’s likely you were watching future MLB All-Stars hone their craft right in front of your eyes. If you weren’t able to make it out this year, be sure to plan a trip for next summer!
