History

Pre-modern era

Origins of baseball in Falmouth

Baseball has been played in Falmouth since the pre-Civil War days. The Barnstable Patriot reported on July 7, 1857 that, "the Fourth was celebrated at Falmouth by a game of base ball, in which some of the principal men of that place participated."[1] In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, teams representing various Cape Cod towns routinely competed against one another. One particularly strong team was Falmouth's "Cottage Club" team, whose name derived from the Falmouth Heights cottages where the players resided. Falmouth home games from the turn of the century through the early 1960s were played just steps from water's edge at the Central Park field in Falmouth Heights. Spectators enjoyed an ocean view and a cool breeze as they took in the action at what was widely regarded as one of the most picturesque baseball settings in the nation.[2]

In 1919, Somerville, Massachusetts native Pie Traynor played shortstop for the Falmouth town team as well as for the Oak Bluffs team. He batted .447 for Falmouth and had a combined batting average of .322 for the two teams. Prior to the Labor Day game at Falmouth Heights against a visiting Fall River club, Traynor displayed his all-around athleticism by winning a "circling the bases" competition in 15 seconds, as well as winning the sprinting and baseball throwing competitions. Traynor went on to play in the major leagues for seventeen seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, winning the World Series with Pittsburgh in 1925, and compiling a lifetime .320 batting average. Considered one of the greatest third basemen in major league history, Traynor was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York in 1948, the first former Cape Leaguer to be so honored. In 2009 Traynor was inducted into the CCBL hall of fame.[3][4][5]

Traynor was not Falmouth's only future major leaguer of this era. Fletcher Low of Dartmouth College played for the Cottage Club in 1914 and then played briefly for the Boston Braves the following season.[6] Horace "Hod" Ford played shorstop for Falmouth in 1915 and 1916, and went on to play 15 years in the major leagues.[7][8][9][10] Falmouth pitcher Walt Whittaker hurled a no-hitter against Oak Bluffs in 1915, and then played briefly for Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics in 1916.[11][12] Dave Morey, Falmouth's player-manager during the 1920 and 1921 seasons had previously played for Mack's Athletics in 1913.[13][14]

Horace "Hod" Ford played for Falmouth in 1915 and 1916 and went on to a 15-year major league career. CCBL Hall of Famer and Cape native Danny MacFayden played for Falmouth in 1925 and went on to a 17-year major league career.

The early Cape League era (1923-1939)

In 1923 the Cape Cod Baseball League was formed and included four teams: Falmouth, Chatham, Osterville, and Hyannis. This early Cape League operated through the 1939 season and disbanded in 1940, due in large part to the difficulty of securing ongoing funding during the Great Depression. Although the composition of the league changed from year to year as various teams would join or drop out, Falmouth's entry alone lasted the entire span of the league's history.

During the 1920s, several future major leaguers played for Falmouth. Brown University pitcher Hal Neubauer pitched for Falmouth in 1923, and played for the Boston Red Sox two years later.[15][16] His battery-mate at Falmouth was catcher Bill Cronin, who hit a whopping .420 in 1923. Cronin went on to play several seasons for the major league Boston Braves.[17][18] Falmouth took the pennant in the league's inaugural 1923 season, posting a record of 9-3, while Chatham, Osterville and Hyannis finished in a three-way tie for second place with identical 5-7 records.[19]

CCBL hall of famer Danny "Deacon" MacFayden, a Cape Cod native from Truro, played for Falmouth in 1925.[20] The season was highlighted by MacFayden's one-hitter against Hyannis. By 1926, he was playing for the hometown Boston Red Sox and went on to pitch for 17 years in the major leagues, winning a World Series title with the New York Yankees in 1932. Haskell "Josh" Billings played for Falmouth from 1925 to 1927, was team MVP in 1925, and finished the 1927 season playing for the Detroit Tigers.[21][22][3] National Football League running back Curly Oden spent his off-season as Falmouth's player-manager in 1927 and 1928. Oden was known as "the king of the base stealers in the league," having "thrilled the crowds on several occasions by stealing home."[23][24][25] CCBL all-league catcher Gene Connell played for Falmouth from 1927 to 1929, and went on to play for the Philadelphia Phillies.[26][27][28] Future major league umpire Bill Stewart pitched for Falmouth in 1929.[29][30]

On August 26, 1929 the Falmouth team travelled to Rockland, Massachusetts to play a charity exhibition contest against the major league Boston Braves. Before a crowd of about four thousand, the big-leaguers won the game, 8-7, but the game was tight and Falmouth "not only outhit the major aggregation 13-11, but outplayed them in many departments of the game." The Braves featured baseball hall of fame first baseman George Sisler, who went 0-for-3 in the game.[31][32][33] Falmouth went on finish the 1929 season two games ahead of Chatham-Harwich to win the pennant and claim its first Cape League championship. The exhibition contest with the Braves became an annual event into the mid-1930s, with Falmouth defeating the major leaguers on multiple occasions. Baseball hall of famer Rabbit Maranville played for the Braves in the 1931 Falmouth game.[34][35][36]

In 1930, Holy Cross catcher Jack Walsh joined Falmouth and batted .360 for the season. From 1931 to 1935, Walsh was Falmouth's player-manager, and also managed the team in 1936. He led the league in batting in 1933 with a .362 average, and skippered the team to league championships in 1931, 1932 and 1935.[37][38][39] Walsh posted a 170-109 won-loss record as manager and did not have a losing season. He was inducted into the CCBL hall of fame in 2007.[40] One of Walsh's charges at Falmouth was pitcher Al Blanche, a Somerville, Massachusetts native who was part of Falmouth's 1931 title team and went on to play for the Boston Braves.[41][42] Another member of the 1931 team was third baseman Al Niemiec of Holy Cross.[43][44] Niemiec went on to play for the Boston Red Sox, and in 1937 was traded by the Red Sox with one other player to San Diego of the Pacific Coast League in exchange for a promising young "kid" named Ted Williams.[45]

Walsh's 1935 Falmouth title team starred Bill "Lefty" Lefebvre, who went on to play for the Boston Red Sox and Washington Senators, and also featured pitcher Jud McLaughlin, who had played for the major league Red Sox a few years earlier.[46][47] Joe Mulligan and Red Flaherty played for Falmouth in 1936. Mulligan had pitched for the Boston Red Sox in 1934,[48][49] and Flaherty would go on to enjoy a long major league umpiring career, officiating for over 20 years in the American League, including four World Series assignments.[48][50]

Falmouth's 1938 championship team[51] featured burly slugger John Spirida, who would go on to play pro football with the Washington Redskins the following year.[52][53] The pitching star of the 1938 title team was former longtime major league hurler Rosy Ryan, who played in three World Series, and struck out the mighty Babe Ruth with the bases loaded in the 1923 World Series.[54][55]

In 1939, the final year of the early Cape League, night baseball was introduced for the first time. Portable lights were staged at the Falmouth Heights field and used for a game against Barnstable. The following night, the lights were transported to Hyannis for the second game of the home-and-home series between the two clubs.[56] Falmouth went on to win their second consecutive league championship in 1939, led by Danvers, Massachusetts native Connie Creeden, who would go on to play for the Boston Braves.[57][58]

The Upper and Lower Cape League era (1946-1962)

The Cape League was revived after World War II and was originally composed of 11 teams across Upper Cape and Lower Cape divisions. Falmouth's entry in the Upper Cape division was known as the Falmouth All-Stars, as the players were a collection of stars from Falmouth's in-town "twilight league".[59]

Led by manager John DeMello, the All-Stars won the inaugural championship of the new Cape League in 1946. The team featured CCBL hall of famers Roche Pires[60] and Manny Pena,[61] both of whom became regular fixtures for the All-Stars during this period. Falmouth defeated Sagamore in a one-game playoff for the Upper Cape division title,[62] then met Lower Cape champion Harwich in the best-of-three championship series. Harwich took Game 1 at Brooks Park, 6-1, holding the All-Stars to just three hits. Game 2 was played on Labor Day at Falmouth Heights before a reported crowd of 3,000. Pires struck out seven, and was "seldom in trouble," as Falmouth capitalized on four Harwich errors to build an 8-0 lead before Harwich finally got on the board with a pair of homers in the seventh. The Harwichers rallied again in each of the final two frames, but Pires held them off and went the distance in a 10-6 win that knotted the series at one game apiece. After Game 2, a coin flip determined Falmouth would host Game 3 the following weekend, and the All-Stars sent Pires to the mound in the finale. The game was even at 3-3 through five frames, but again Harwich's errors were its downfall, leading to Falmouth rallies in the late innings that gave the All-Stars the 8-4 victory and the league crown. Falmouth's championship club was celebrated as playing a "forcing, aggressive type of ball" that "compared favorably with the old semi-pro teams" of Falmouth's pre-war era.[63][64]

In 1951, Falmouth entered a second franchise in the Cape League. Described as "young and spirited,"[65] the Falmouth Falcons were composed mainly of players in their late teens and early twenties.[66] The team played for three years in the Cape League, sharing the Falmouth Heights field with the All-Stars.[67] The 1951 Falcons were skippered by player/manager Charlie "Wig" Robb, and opened their inaugural campaign in respectable fashion by finishing the season's first half in second place in the Upper Cape division.[68][69] Robb was named a league all-star third baseman,[70][71] and the team's outlook seemed promising.[72] Falmouth native Charlie Borden, who had spent time as a minor leaguer in the Chicago Cubs farm system, took over managerial duties for the Falcons in 1952.[73][74] After disappointing seasons by both Falmouth teams in 1952, a merger for the following season was discussed, but the Falcons were not keen to the idea.[75][76] Town funds were appropriated for only one team in 1953, but the Falcons remained in the league through independent financial support,[77][78] led by new skipper Phil White.[79] The season would be the final one for the Falcons, as the teams were finally merged for the 1954 season.[80]

Fall River, Massachusetts native and future Boston Red Sox catcher Russ Gibson had just joined Falmouth in 1957 when he was signed by Boston. In his only game with Falmouth, he hit two home runs.[81][82]

Modern era (1963-present)

The 1960s: A new league, a new park, a new name

In 1963, the CCBL was reorganized and became officially sanctioned by the NCAA. The league would no longer be characterized by "town teams" who fielded mainly Cape Cod residents, but would now be a formal collegiate league. Teams began to recruit college players and coaches from an increasingly wide geographic radius.

The league was originally composed of ten teams, which were divided into Upper Cape and Lower Cape divisions. Falmouth joined Wareham, Cotuit, Bourne and Sagamore in the Upper Cape division. In 1964 the Falmouth All-Stars moved from the Falmouth Heights field and began playing home games at Guv Fuller Field. The following year, the team's name was changed to the Falmouth Commodores.

Falmouth was the dominant team in the Cape League from the mid-1960s through the early 1970s. Led by CCBL hall of fame manager Bill Livesey,[83] Falmouth reached the Cape League championship series six consecutive times beginning in 1966, winning the title in five of six years, including four consecutive titles from 1968 to 1971.

Livesey's 1966 title team featured CCBL hall of fame pitcher Noel Kinski, a three-time all star who had played for Bourne and Sagamore in the previous two seasons. Kinski went 7-3 with a 3.15 ERA and was the Upper Cape division's starting all-star pitcher for Falmouth in 1966.[84] The Commodores defeated Chatham for the 1966 title, but in 1967 Chatham returned the favor as the two teams met again for the title, with Chatham coming out on top.[85] The 1968 Commodores title team included Worcester, Massachusetts native Pat Bourque, who went on to win a World Series with the 1973 Oakland A's. The Commodores met Harwich in the best-of-five 1968 championship series. Falmouth dropped Game 1 at Harwich, but then took the next three games to claim the crown, with the Game 4 finale an exciting 11-10 win in 10 innings.[86]

Ace pitcher and CCBL hall of famer Paul Mitchell starred for Falmouth from 1969 to 1971.[83] He was named the league's Outstanding Pitcher in 1969 and 1970, and was the winning pitcher in the league all star game in 1970 and 1971. In three seasons, Mitchell won 25 games for the Commodores, posting a 1.53 ERA with 317 strikeouts and 28 complete games. In the 1969 title series against Chatham, Falmouth dropped Game 1 in Chatham, being no-hit into the sixth inning, and ending up with only two hits in Chatham's 4-0 victory. But the Commodores stormed back in Game 2 at Guv Fuller Field as Paul Mitchell was the hero on the mound and contributed a home run in a 9-4 victory that set up the decisive third game. Falmouth's Mickey Karkut twirled a complete game gem and the Commodores came out on top, 5-2, to secure their second consecutive league title.[87][88]

Livesey's "four-peat" launches the 1970s

Returning to the championship series in 1970, the Commodores faced the Orleans Cardinals. Falmouth lefty Jim Jachym shut out the Cards in Game 1, 2-0. The Commodores sent ace Paul Mitchell to the mound with ideas of a sweep in Game 2 at Eldredge Park. Falmouth jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first, but Orleans answered in the bottom half to go ahead 4-3. The Cardinals took a 7-5 lead into the top of the ninth, but the Commodores rallied to go ahead 8-7, and Mitchell nailed down the series-clinching victory by striking out the side in the bottom of the ninth.[89][90]

The 1971 title series was a best-of-five series, and would be a rematch of the prior year, with the Commodores facing Orleans. The Cardinals took the Game 1 pitcher's duel at Guv Fuller, 1-0, on a homer by Brad Linden. Game 2 in Orleans also ended with a 1-0 tally, but this time the Commodores were on top to tie the series. Falmouth sent Paul Mitchell to the hill for Game 3 at home, and the ace came through with a 3-1 victory behind a three-run dinger by Kevin Bryant. An ugly sixth-inning brawl involving players, umpires and fans marred Game 4 at Eldredge Park. Skipper Livesey was tossed in the eighth, and Orleans went on to win, 7-5 to tie the series at two games apiece. Like Games 1 and 2, Game 5 at Guv Fuller Field was a pitcher's duel that ended with just a single run being scored. Commodores hurler Bob Lukas was dominating, allowing just five hits while striking out 16. The decisive run came in the bottom of the seventh, as Dave Creighton walked and stole second, then scored the series-winning run on a Ray O'Brien single to left. The win gave Falmouth its fourth consecutive championship, and fifth in six years.[91]

Falmouth's 1972 team featured CCBL batting champ Ed Orrizzi (.372) and future major leaguers Billy Almon and Mike Flanagan.[92] Flanagan went 7-1 for on the season with a 2.18 ERA while also belting seven home runs; he would go on to win a World Series and Cy Young Award with the Baltimore Orioles, and was inducted into the CCBL hall of fame in 2000. Due to a scheduling conflict with the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League, the 1972 CCBL all-star game was contested between the CCBL all-stars and the defending champion Falmouth team at Guv Fuller field. The game was won by Falmouth, 8-1, with the home team's Mike Flanagan getting the victory.[93]

With Livesey's departure after the 1972 season, Falmouth struggled for most of the rest of the 1970s, reaching the league championship only once, losing to Cotuit in 1975.[94] The '70s dropoff reached its low point in 1977 when the team was forced to withdraw from the league mid-season, "plagued by injuries and lack of employment for its players."[95] 1979 provided a sign of good things to come when CCBL hall of famer Billy Best hit .398 for the Commodores, and set league records with a 32-game hitting streak and at least one base hit in 39 of his 41 games played.[20]

The 1980s and a return to championship form

In 1980, the Commodores welcomed the new decade by returning to the league championship series. Led by manager Al Worthington, the 1980 team featured future major leaguers Sid Bream and Steve Lombardozzi. After disposing of Cotuit in the semi-finals, the Commodores met the first place Chatham Athletics in the best-of-five title series. Falmouth took the first two games,[96] but dropped the next two, setting up the pivotal Game 5 in Chatham. In the finale, Falmouth took the lead early when Bruce Helser drove in Tom "Bat" Masterson in the second inning. The run would be the only one the Commodores would need. Falmouth starter Mark Winters, a 6-foot-6 southpaw, took advantage of swirling Veteran's Field winds to keep Chatham hitters at bay, tossing a four-hit shutout en route to Falmouth's decisive 5-0 victory. The championship was Falmouth's sixth of the modern era, and thirteenth overall.[97][98][99]

The 1980s saw two Falmouth players post batting averages that are among the highest in Cape League history. In 1981, CCBL hall of famer Sam Nattile batted .443 with 70 hits and eight home runs for the Commodores.[61] Nattile also belted a game-tying home run at the league's all star game at Fenway Park, a game that ended in a 4-4 tie. The 1984 Falmouth team was skippered by CCBL hall of fame manager Ed Lyons,[92] and featured CCBL hall of famers Jim McCollom, who batted .413 and slugged a league-high 15 home runs,[100] and Doug Fisher, a first baseman who tied the league's single-season RBI record with 54, and finished just behind McCollom with 14 homers.[101]

The 1990s

In 1992 and 1993, the Commodores were piloted by CCBL hall of famer Arthur "Ace" Adams, who had played for the team in the early 1970s and was a league all-star in 1973. A colorful character, Ace's Falmouth baseball roots ran deep: not only had his father also played in the Cape League, but his father first met Ace's mother at Falmouth Heights field.[102]

The 1994 Commodores team featured several outstanding players. CCBL hall of famer and future major league all-star Darin Erstad was the Cape League's MVP.[103] Joining him were the league's outstanding pitcher and fellow CCBL hall of famer, Bob St. Pierre,[104] as well as the league's outstanding relief pitcher, Scott Winchester. Winchester set a league record with 13 saves, while St. Pierre went 9-1 with a 1.44 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 75 innings.

Falmouth reached the league championship only once in the 1990s, as the 1996 Commodores were carried by CCBL hall of fame pitcher Eric Milton's microscopic 0.21 ERA,[105] but lost to Chatham in the title series.[106][107] Milton's season was highlighted by his no-hitter against Orleans in which he came within one walk of a perfect game.[108] The Commodores took home individual honors in 1997 as Jason Edgar was named MVP of the CCBL all-star game,[109] and in 1999 when Doc Brooks became the first Commodore to win the CCBL all-star home run derby.[110]

The 2000s

The Commodores reached the CCBL championship series twice in the 2000s, but were swept by Y-D in both 2004 and 2007.[111][112][113] The 2004 Falmouth team featured future Boston Red Sox star Jacoby Ellsbury,[114] and in both seasons the Commodores were led by the league's MVP. In 2004 the MVP was CCBL hall of famer Daniel Carte,[115] and in 2007 it was fellow CCBL hall of famer Conor Gillaspie.[116] Carte began the 2004 season in an 0-for-19 slump, but busted out of it with his first three hits, all home runs. He led the league with 11 homers and 38 RBI, and his .308 average left him just 19 points shy of the triple crown. Gillaspie finished the 2007 season tops in the league in batting with a .345 mark, and also led the league in slugging and extra-base hits.

2005 Commodore Tim Norton was co-recipient of the league's Outstanding Pitcher award, posting a 5-1 record with a 1.77 ERA and 77 strikeouts against only 15 walks in 61 innings.[117] Future major league all-star pitcher Aaron Crow was the CCBL's Outstanding Pro Prospect in 2007.[118] In 2008, another future MLB all-star, A.J. Pollock, took home the league's MVP award, batting .377 with 61 hits.[119] Jimmy Cesario led the Cape League with a .387 batting average in 2008, and fellow-Commodore Todd Cunningham did the same in 2009 with his .378 mark on the way to being named the league's Outstanding Pro Prospect.[120]

Longtime Commodore volunteer Arnie Allen received the league's inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002, and in 2004 the diamond at Guv Fuller Field was named Arnie Allen Diamond in his memory.[121] Skipper Jeff Trundy surpassed Bill Livesey in 2007 as the longest-tenured manager in Falmouth history, a mark Trundy would proceed to leave far behind.

The 2010s

The Commodores qualified for postseason play in nine of ten years in the 2010s, and reached the CCBL championship three times. Falmouth was bounced from the championship series in 2011 by Harwich.[122][123] In 2014 and 2016, the Commodores ran into old nemesis Y-D, who defeated Falmouth for a pair of titles as they had done the decade before.[124][125] From 2016 to 2019, the Commodores finished the regular season atop the league's West division three out of four years, but were bumped from the playoffs in each season.

North Dighton, Massachusetts native and Holy Cross hurler Nate Koneski was the league's Outstanding New England Player in 2011, posting a 1.03 ERA with 24 strikeouts in 26.1 innings.[126] Falmouth's 2013 and 2014 teams starred shortstop Kevin Newman, who led the league in batting both seasons, the first player in the league's modern era to win back-to-back batting titles. Newman hit .375 in his first season, then bettered his mark by 10 points the following season, and was named 2014 league MVP.[127][128] The 2016 Commodores featured the league's Outstanding Pro Prospect, Michael Gigliotti,[129] as well as the league's Outstanding Pitcher, Jeff Passantino.[130] In 2019, Falmouth featured league Outstanding Relief Pitcher Zachary Brzykcy and league batting champ Zach DeLoach (.353).

* During the CCBL's 1923-1939 era, post-season playoffs were a rarity. In most years, the regular season pennant winner was simply crowned as the league champion.
However, there were four years in which the league split its regular season and crowned separate champions for the first (A) and second (B) halves. In two of those
seasons (1936 and 1939), a single team won both halves and was declared overall champion. In the other two split seasons (1933 and 1935), a post-season
playoff series was contested between the two half-season champions to determine the overall champion.
