Remembering Joe Sherman; Scarafile honored in Hyannis

by Andrew Wirtanen


At times, it was warm enough this week on the Cape to play baseball. But, we're still over 160 days away before the best college players in the nation return to our favorite fields.

There were a couple big stories from the league during the holiday week:

  • First, some sad news - Joe Sherman, the league's senior writer, editor, league historian and director of special projects, passed away at the age of 74 on Saturday, December 19. Read more about his life and legacy on the official press release.
  • On December 16, 2015, the league announced that the Hyannis Athletic Association are renaming the Harbor Hawks' home to the Judy Walden Scarafile Field at McKeon Park. Scarafile served 24 years as Cape League president and 45 years with the league overall.
