[edit] Team Bio

The Chatham Athletics 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 Athletics, 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 Athletics, 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 Athletics 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 Athletics 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 Chatham Athletics games are free to the public. A donation can be offered at the gate.
