Wareham Gatemen seek host families for summer baseball players

Mar 1, 2022

The Wareham Gatemen are looking for host families to take in college baseball players during the summer season. The Gatemen are part of the Cape Cod Baseball League. 

The Cape Cod Baseball League’s teams consist of high-level collegiate players from around the country, allowing Major League scouts to check out prospects. Over the years, many Gatemen have gone on to play in Major League Baseball. Former Gatemen include Matt Barnes, a current relief pitcher for the Red Sox; George Springer, who was the World Series MVP for the Houston Astros in 2017; and Casey Mize, a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers.

Host families provide players and occasional coaches with a “home away from home” and are given a weekly stipend, according to the Gatemen.
