The Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) is a Summer Collegiate Baseball league located on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, in which many college baseball stars play during the summer. Myriad future Major League Baseball players have started there; during the 2004 MLB season, 197 CCBL alumni played in the majors or were on injured reserve. The league is also notable for its continuing use of wooden bats. Because it draws top-tier college players, the level of play is often considered the equivalent of high-A Minor League Baseball.

The CCBL Hall of Fame is being housed at Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich, Massachusetts through at least 2008.

The Cape Cod League in Popular Culture The Cape Cod Baseball League was the setting for the 2001 movie Summer Catch. In 2002, writer Jim Collins followed the Chatham Athletics for the season and wrote The Last Best League (ISBN 0306814188) about the team and its players. A documentary film, Touching the Game, chronicled the 2003 CCBL season and explored the league's history.

Like all summer collegiate leagues, Cape Cod Baseball League players are unpaid in order to maintain NCAA eligibility. The CCBL is considered the top tier of Summer Collegiate Baseball Leagues. As of opening day 2007, 1 out of every 7 MLB players came out of the Cape Cod Baseball League.
