Yankees VP of Domestic Amateur Scouting, Damon Oppenheimer on the Cape Cod League: “I think that the Cape’s always been important to me because it’s the thing that most mirrors professional baseball. They play everyday, they play with wood, and they play against the best.” All three of New York’s picks from the MLB Draft played in the Cape this past summer.
Austin Wells – Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox
Trevor Hauver – Hyannis Harbor Hawks
Beck Way – Cotuit Kettleers
Oppenheimer said those appearances were “a strong tool” for player evaluations
