The Cape League, founded in 1885, is celebrating its 127th season. The
league traces its roots to July 4, 1885, when a “base ball”
game was played in Sandwich between teams representing Sandwich and
Barnstable (proclaimed on a poster in the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown).
The league’s so-called “modern era” began in 1963
with the merger of the former Upper Cape and Lower Cape leagues and the
appointment of Daniel J. Silva as commissioner.
