The CapeFLYER is partnering with the Cape Cod Baseball League, the premiere amateur baseball league in the country, to provide train service to this year's All-Star Game in Wareham on July 22nd. Customers can purchase a $25 ticket that will include both a round-trip ticket on the CapeFLYER to Wareham and a ticket to the All-Star game. "The Cape Cod Baseball League All-Star game is a chance to see the future major league all-stars before they become famous. Take the train, enjoy the day by the ocean and then see the next Chris Sale, Jackie Bradley Jr. or Buster Posey up close and personal in a classic baseball setting. After that, let the train take you home," said Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority Administrator. While in Wareham, fans can enjoy Wareham's local shops and restaurants, relax on Onset Beach, rent a kayak or use the coupon included in your package for Hy-Line’s Cape Cod Canal Cruise. According to the CCBL, there were 297 CCBL Alumni Cape League in the Majors in 2016 and one in seven MLB players played in the Cape League. In last year's draft, 258 CCBL alumni were drafted, including 17 in the first and supplementary rounds. In addition, in this year’s Major League Baseball All-Star game, 13 former Cape League players were on the American and National Leagues teams, collectively.
The CCBL has events starting at 2 p.m., including a home run derby and hitting contests. The All-Star game starts at 6 p.m. at Clem Spillane Field, just a short walk to the train station. The CapeFLYER will run on a special schedule to accommodate fans watching the game leaving Hyannis at 7:25 p.m. on July 22nd and arriving in Wareham at 8:35 p.m. to take people back to the greater-Boston area.
