Codger Players and Champions Team Honor Dick Sullivan

There were nearly as many knee braces as baseball gloves at the Falmouth Heights Field one Saturday morning in the first East Vs. West Challenge between the Cape Codgers and the Backoffice Associates. The showdown was one of two matchups in town, as Falmouth’s 65-over team took on the 75-over squad from Backoffice Associates in the Heights, while the Codgers’ 60-plus team played the 70-plus team at the WHOI Fields in Woods Hole.

That the Backoffice Associates teams won both contests was not a big surprise, nor was it the defining outcome of the day. The visitors have twice won the Senior Softball national championship. The Woods hole game was very competitive and BA won by a 9-6 score. In the Heights, it was a bit more lopsided, with the victors winning by a 20-7 score. Chaz Crawford of West Falmouth represented both teams. He played for the Backoffice Associates team of 70-plus players down at WHOI and after helping that team post a win against his friends,he suited up for the Codgers, getting a late at-bat for his hometown team. Chas was also one of the event’s organizers.

The scores were irrelevant in the big picture, though. Codgers’ President Chip Mansfield had assembled the teams to celebrate the sport, and one of the Cape’s iconic people in the game, Dick Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan donned a Codgers cap during a post game ceremony and thanked the assembly, of nearly 100 players and spectators, for the outpouring of gratitude and support.

“Without his help, we wouldn’t be here today,” Mansfield said. “He helped us get our program off the ground and supported us every step of the way.” Falmouth’s Cape Codgers group has exploded in popularity over the past few years. The club began playing ball just six years ago, and over that time has gone from a group that was able to field two teams to having over 100 players and six teams. The Codgers have also supported the Falmouth Youth Baseball league, as well as done several fundraisers for charity, including the March of Dimes.
