Team Bio[edit]

The Falmouth Commodores 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 Commodores, who were formed in 1965, play their home games at Guv Fuller Field in Falmouth Heights, MA. The Commodores invest heavily in actively recruiting and training top players, and have hosted elite collegiate athletes from throughout the United States and Canada, including several future Major League players.

The Falmouth Commodores, 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 amateur draft. The Commodores 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 Falmouth Commodores 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. Their last CCBL championship came in 1980.
