[edit] Team Bio

The Bourne Braves are a Summer Collegiate Baseball team playing in the Cape Cod Baseball League, considered by many to be the nation's premier summer collegiate baseball league. The Braves play their home games at Upper Cape Tech in Bourne, MA in the newly dedicated Doran Park. The Braves invest heavily in actively recruiting and training top players, and have hosted some of the top collegiate athletes from throughout the United States and Canada, including several Major League players.

The Bourne Braves, like other summer college baseball teams, are dedicated and designed to provide minor league level competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball and routinely send players to the MLB amateur draft. The Braves operate in the model of an Independent Minor League team: recruiting athletes, playing nightly before fans in stadiums which seat thousands, using wood bats and minor league specification equipment and experiencing road trips between games. Like all other summer collegiate players, the Bourne Braves are unpaid in order to maintain their NCAA eligibility, and live with host families in the same manner as Single A and Independent League players.

  • Like All Cape Cod Baseball League Games, the Bourne Braves games are free to the public. A donation can be offered at the gate.
