[edit] Team Bio

The Cotuit Kettleers 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 Kettleers, who were formed in 1947, play their home games at Elizabeth Lowell Park in Cotuit, MA. The Kettleers 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 Cotuit Kettleers, 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 Kettleers 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 Cotuit Kettleers 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.
