Real baseball

Player and crowd scenes from a playoff game between Orleans and Harwich at the Cape Cod Baseball League tonight. This is real community baseball, where college kids are given local housing and part-time summer jobs so they can play for several weeks at fields where the fans can sit close and meet the players and the mascot. After each game, a local restaurant, business, or family treats the players to dinner. One in 7 of all Major League Baseball players played in the Cape Cod league!
