Cape Codgers Senior Softball League
FALMOUTH HEIGHTS
About The Codgers

The Cape Codgers League began in the spring of 2008 as a group of twenty guys playing pickup games and eventually challenging other local softball teams on the Upper Cape. In 2009, the league expanded to three teams totaling about sixty players. That year, our teams played each other in a 16-game season including a league championship. In 2010 we expanded to 4 teams playing intra-league and inter-league competition.

In 2011, we increased our participation to over 80 players assigned to four teams and enjoyed a great season of friendship, competition and fun! And now, our league has assembled two "travel teams" to play other senior men’s teams from Eastern Massachusetts. League members can also participate in off season activities such as our weekly evening workouts at the Falmouth Rec Center (sometimes followed by "strategy sessions" at a local pub over pizza), the batting cages, and even a couple of winter games in a dome off Cape.

Of course there is also the much ballyhooed end of year "Codger Family Cookout" as well as a new yearly golf tournament! The league will continue its tradition of weekly intra-league games where all players will play and compete for fun. We will also continue to create travel teams based on a "tryout" process in 2-3 age groups for competition at a higher level over the course of the season in tournament play and in competition with other "senior" men’s teams in Eastern MA.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

How often do you play?
The Codger regular season runs from June to September. However optional sports, volunteer, and other activities continue all year long. During the summer, league games are typically held once a week at 5:30 PM, and on some nights, we play a double header.

Do I have to be a good athlete / softball player to join?
No! We have all levels of ability in the league and we try to organize teams in such a way that they are evenly matched. Travel teams that will compete at a tournament level will be chosen by a tryout process. Regular Cape Codger league games are played by all player levels and, quite frankly, are the most fun!

Are you looking for players only?
Definitely not! We would like to find a few guys that are interested in coaching, score-keeping and umpiring. Additionally, people with any organizational ability that would like to be part of the league are very welcome!!

Where do you play?
Most games are held at the Falmouth Heights field. They start at 5:30 and we play 7 innings. Some Saturday games are played in the morning at the field on Route 151 next to the Nickelodeon Theater.

Is there a membership fee / dues? Are there any other costs?
For 2016, the dues are $75 per player. Non players (scorekeepers, umps, etc.) are not charged dues. Dues fund team activities and defray the entry fees for some tournaments. Hats and shirts are included- they are paid for by our generous sponsors!
