The Hyannis Harbor Hawks will visit Spillane Field tonight to take on the Gatemen in the first game of the 2022 season.
Starting pitcher Michael Sansone (Fairfield) will take the mound tonight for Wareham. The senior lefty is a Cape Cod Baseball League All-Star and is coming back for a second season with the league. In 2021, Sansone pitched for the Bourne Braves, where he posted a 4-0 record.
Starting for Hyannis is Brody McCullough (Wingate). The North Carolina native brings his 2.40 ERA in 2022 with him to Cape Cod for the summer.
The Gatemen are led by longtime Cape League manager, Harvey Shapiro. Shapiro begins his 25th year in the league after being inducted into the CCBL Hall of Fame and being named Manager of the Year in 2021 with the Bourne Braves.
The Gatemen have their new start time for home games at 6:00pm this season apart from a double header against the Harwich Mariners on June 26.
Have a great night of baseball, food and family fun with the Gatemen on opening night!
