The Cape Cod Baseball League needs no introduction to baseball fans. Those who follow the game know that it is the summertime home to the best collegiate talent in the game.

For Kayla Baptista, a rising sophomore on the University of North Carolina softball team and Wareham Gatemen intern, it is the chance of a lifetime.
“Oh it means everything,” Baptista said. “I have always had a passion for baseball.”
