                    s you’ve seen from the cover photo on this Souvenir Yearbook, 2023 is a very
                    special year for the Chatham Anglers and for the Cape Cod Baseball League
             A(CCBL).  The CCBL was founded 100 years ago, with Chatham as one of the four
              original teams.  We will celebrate these centennial anniversaries in various ways this
              summer as we bring you another season of exciting and excellent college baseball at
              Chatham’s Veterans Field.

              This yearbook contains information on our 2023 Chatham Angler players, coaches, and
              support staff.  It also thanks our 700+ boosters for their generosity and recognizes the
              many other individuals, local businesses, civic organizations, and the Town of Chatham
              personnel who provide support to our organization.  This yearbook also thanks our
              volunteers, interns, host families, post-game meal donors, bat boys and others, all of
              whom are essential for us to bring our fans another first-class, Chatham Anglers summer of baseball at Veterans Field.

              Speaking of Veterans Field, over the last 10 years we have coordinated with the Town of Chatham to make many
              enhancements to improve your game day experience.  These enhancements include installing new field lights (2014),
              a new press box scoreboard (2016), a new outfield scoreboard (2019), a new bleacher system (2019), and an improved
              backstop safety netting system (2022).  Our generous donors played a huge role in making all these improvements a
              reality.  We’re biased, but we believe Veterans Field is the finest baseball venue on Cape Cod.

              We are excited about the 2023 baseball season, the Anglers fifth season under the tutelage of manager Tom Holliday.
              Tom and his experienced staff are bringing a talented group of players from across the country to Chatham, players
              who hope to shine on the CCBL stage as they pursue their dreams of reaching the major leagues.  There are currently
              over 30 former Anglers in the major leagues, including 2022 World Series MVP Jeremy Pena (2017), 2022 starting All-
              Star game pitcher Alek Manoah (2018) and the #1 draft pick in the 2020 draft, Spencer Torkelson (2018-9).

              So,  whether  you’re  a  long-time  Angler  fan,  a  first-time  visitor,  or  fit  somewhere  in  between,  we  hope  you  have
              a wonderful Veterans Field experience, one that provides you with great summer memories!  When you attend an
              Anglers game at Veterans Field be sure to experience all we have to offer.  Browse our merchandise booth to purchase
              Angler logo gear, visit our concession stand to indulge in our wide array of delectable items, enter our 50/50 raffle to

              website broadcast and/or on our numerous other social media platforms.
