[edit] Team Bio

The Chatham Anglers 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 Anglers, who have been a central player in the CCBL since 1963, play their home games at Veterans Field in Chatham, MA. The Chatham Athletics invest heavily in actively recruiting and training top players, and have hosted elite collegiate athletes from throughout the United States and Canada, including several Major League players.

The Chatham Anglers, like other summer college baseball teams, are dedicated and designed to provide minor league-style competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball and routinely send players to the MLB Drafts. The Chatham Anglers 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 Chatham Anglers 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.The team was known as the Chatham Athletics until the 2009 season when they changed their name to conform a new rule from Major League Baseball requiring them to buy uniforms from MLB licensed vendors if they kept a MLB related name.

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