UNC Baseball: Playoff time in the Cape Cod Baseball League

The regular season ends Thursday, how are the Diamond Heels doing on the Cape?

Al Hood

The nights are getting longer, football players are reporting to campus, and over on Cape Cod, the Cape Cod Baseball League featuring several Diamond Heels is winding down its season.

As discussed last week, the playoff commences on Saturday after everyone gets a day off. As of this writing, the teams have almost been set, but the seedings have not.

Representing the Eastern Division: Yarmouth-Dennis, Orleans, Brewster, and Chatham.

Representing the Western Division: Falmouth, Cotuit, Bourne. Wareham has almost clinched the last spot but Hyannis mathematically could catch up.

Sadly, Harwich being eliminated from the East means that Tyler Baum and Cole Aker will not be participating in the playoffs. On the plus side, it means they get a couple of days of actual summer vacation prior to school starting. The other good news is that every other Tar Heel playing will get a touch of playoff baseball.

Next week, we’ll post the last update with a champion and how the Tar Heels did, including their final numbers. For now, as always, these number via the CSBL site:

The update will be a little later next week, to allow the CCBL season to finish up and give you one last Diamond Heels update. If you want to follow along with the League during the playoffs, each team provides a feed that you can access. Plenty of broadcasters use these types of leagues to get their professional starts, so who knows what future broadcast star you may hear?

Good luck to all of the Diamond Heels for the rest of the CCBL season!
