Happy World Series Day!!!

The line-ups have been announced, tickets sold, fans are pumped! Now if only the rain will hold off we'll be ready for GAME 1 of the 2007 WORLD SERIES!

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know I have a strong connection to the Cape Cod Baseball League.

This year there are 19 Cape League alumni who play/coach on the teams in the World Series! While not all of them are on the WS Roster, they all played part in getting their team to this all important series.

Red Sox:
John Farrell (Hyannis, 1982), Doug Mirabelli (Hyannis, 1990), Jason Varitek (Hyannis, 1991 & 1993), Mike Lowell (Chatham, 1994), Javier Lopez (Falmouth, 1997), Eric Hinske (Hyannis, 1997), Bobby Kielty (Brewster, 1998), Kyle Snyder (Chatham, 1998), Kevin Cash (Falmouth, 1999), Kevin Youkilis (Bourne, 2000) and Jaocby Ellsbury (Falmouth, 2004),

Matt Herges (Brewster, 1990), Todd Helton (Orleans, 1994), Josh Fogg (Hyannis, 1996), Garrett Atkins (Cotuit, 1998 & 1999), Brad Hawpe (Yarmouth-Dennis, 1999), Cory Sullivan (Yarmouth-Dennis, 2000), Ryan Speier (Bourne, 2002) and Chris Iannetta (Chatham, 2002)

I'll be watching these players specifically to see the impact they have on this World Series. I figure it's an angle you other Sox bloggers out there aren't covering!
