The Cape Cod League is the premier wooden bat summer collegiate baseball league in the country. In 2018, over 300 major leaguers played on the Cape during their college years. Now in its 133rd season, the league’s ten teams have sent over 1,100 players to the major leagues. Notable alumni from Wareham include George Springer, Dallas Keuckel and Kyle Schwarber. Notable alumni from Yarmouth-Dennis include Chris Sale, Joe Panik and Buster Posey.

“The wholesome family nature, rich history, and unprecedented level of play is a perfect match for the atmosphere at Dunkin’ Donuts Park” Yard Goats President Tim Restall said in a press release. “This will be a wonderful opportunity for fans to see some of the greatest amateur players in baseball right here in downtown Hartford.”

“We are absolutely delighted and privileged to be coming to Hartford and Dunkin’ Donuts Park for one of our regular season games on July 24th. We are most grateful to the Hartford Yard Goats and President Tim Restall for this opportunity, and are sure the loyal Yard Goat fans will be pleased and excited to see the Cape Cod League caliber of play”, Paul Galop, Commissioner of the Cape Cod Baseball League, said.

Tickets for the game will start at $10, and are available through the Yard Goats team website.
