CAPE COD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — After some speculation on Cape Cod because of the pandemic, a vote was made and a summertime staple will be back this year.
Good news for baseball fans, the Cape Cod Baseball League is coming back this summer. The league missed last season because of the pandemic.
Now, following some recent speculation among Cape residents of a delayed season, the league's executive committee voted Wednesday night to approve an amended forty game schedule.
The new schedule will begin on June 20. In a statement the league said, "ensuring the health and safety of our fans and players is our number one priority."
Officials said the decision to start on June 20, is an important step towards that goal. Last week, CCBL President Chuck Stertevant hinted at the possibility of a delayed start to the season or even one without playoffs.
A final decision on playoffs has not been made at this time. Financial concerns have also been raised by league and team officials, who said the state's capacity limit of 150 people at games will destroy the league.
Additional details about the 2021 season and schedule are expected to be released soon.
