Cape Cod League All-Star Game and Recognition at Historic Fenway Park –

Home of the Boston Red Sox!
The Cape League All-Stars were recognized today at Fenway Park in Boston before the Red Sox and Oakland A’s game. The Cape Cod League All-Star game was played on Thursday July 22nd in Fenway Park as well. I was privileged to be the head coach of the West Squad which won the game 3-0 (Game was shortened to 4 ½ innings due to rain). Zach Cox, from the University of Arkansas and my starting 3B on the Cotuit Kettleers was the Most Valuable Player for the West Squad and Chris Sale – LHPitcher from Gulf Coast University in Florida and plays for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox was the MVP for the Eastern Division team.
As I spoke with the players during batting practice, the home run hitting contest, and the game it was very obvious how much they enjoyed the opportunity to play in a historic major league stadium. Many of these All-Stars will play professional baseball but few will actually have the opportunity to play in the major leagues. The memory of pitching or hitting at Fenway Park will always be a day in their baseball career they will remember.
