The Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) is the premier amateur baseball league in the nation since its official formation 1923. Before 1923, town baseball teams on Cape Cod had played against each other in recorded contests since 1885. After being populated mostly by GIs returning from World War I in 1919 and WW II in the late 1940s, the CCBL continued to be populated by a combination of local and regional college players until 1963, when it became officially sanctioned by the NCAA. Following a decade (1974-84) of using aluminum bats, the Cape League became the first collegiate summer league to use wooden bats in 1985 and became even more popular with major league scouts and college players and coaches and still is to this day!
