The Wareham Gatemen are a Summer Collegiate Baseball team playing in the Cape Cod Baseball League, the nation's most elite summer collegiate league. The Gatemen joined the CCBL in 1969 and won their first Cape league championship in 1976. They play their home games at Spillane Field in Wareham, MA.
The Wareham Gatemen, like other summer college baseball teams, are dedicated and designed to provide minor league level competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball and routinely send players to the MLB Drafts. The Gatemen 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 Wareham Gatemen 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 Wareham Gatemen games are "Free to the Public". A donation can be offered at the gate.
