CAPE COD, Mass. — America's pastime, baseball, rings true on the Cape through the Cape Cod Baseball League. College players from across the United State represent all NCAA divisions and are recruited to play in the 10-team league.

Three Alabama Crimson Tide baseball players were invited to play in the league during the 2021 summer Owen Diodati, Jim Jarvis and Caden Rose.

Juniors, Diodati and Jarvis have the luxury of previously being teammates; the two join each other on the Wareham Gatemen while the sophomore, Rose, is the standalone Alabama player on the Hyannis Harbor Hawks.


Left-handed batter, Diodati certainly continued his game play from ending his 2021 collegiate season at the Ruston Regional. After a week of play in the CCBL, he earned the Player of the Week award.

After nine games on the Cape, Diodati has the Gatemen’s fourth highest batting average (.361). He has batted in the most runs for his team (12) and ranks second in the league. The outfielder has placed 13 hits, and is one of two Gatemen players with double-digit hits.

The Canadian also leads the League with four home runs so far this season.

The other lefty and Alabama player on the Gatemen, Jarvis, has been the leadoff batter for the Gatemen and has started every game at shortstop but one, where he played second base.

He currently holds the fifth highest batting average on his team (.270) and has scored the most runs (6). Jarvis has 10 hits, just three behind his teammate Diodati.

Rose, the Harbor Hawk, holds a .233 batting average and has the most at-bats (30) and hits of anyone on his team (7). The Madison, Ala., native finds his place on the team in the infield at shortstop or second base.

These Alabama players will continue to thrive during the Cape League’s 40-game regular-season.

All of the teams provide free Internet video and audio for their home games.
