The (Cape League) replacement players

Typically, if we’re talking about college players in June, it’s because of the draft. But much of the fun of college baseball is in the endless stock of underdog stories, and many of those guys never hear their name called.

The Cape Cod Chronicle has a fantastic feature on Cape Cod League replacement players—the guys who fill out rosters when the bigger-name prospects are in the College World Series or otherwise unable to play. Most of these guys play at schools in the Northeast, where any summer league is often their best chance to impress.
