Welcome to the Cape League Baseball and Softball Website!
The league is comprised of 13-18 year old players from 3 area Little Leagues. We draw players from Milton Little League, Lewes Little League and Rehoboth Little League who wish to continue playing organized recreational softball and baseball. Players from each of these leagues boundry lines are eligable to play in Cape.
Cape participates in District All-Star's as well as Pat Knight tournament play.
Baseball utilizes the fields at both Milton LL and Rehoboth LL as our home fields (Lewes does not have a 90 ft base path field for baseball).
Softball utilizes Milton LL field as our home field with some games also at Rehoboth.
Softball and Senior Baseball are part of Interleague Play involving teams from all around Sussex County. Junior Baseball is typically scheduled to play teams from Eastern Sussex County but sometimes includes teams from the entire County, as well as other Cape teams.
The season will begin on or about May 19th and runs through the end of June. There is approximately a 12 game schedule. Games which are not made up by the end of June are generally not made up due to the Pat Knight and All Star tournments beginning the first/second week (respectively) of July.
Boys Seniors play Monday and Wednesday with a 6pm or 7pm start time depending on if the field we are playing on has lights. Our home field is either Rehoboth or Milton as assigned per game.
Boys Juniors play Tuesday and Thursday with a 6pm or 7pm start time depending on if the field we are playing on has lights. Our home field is either Rehoboth or Milton as assigned per game.
Girls schedules are Monday and Wednesday with typically an 8pm start as they must be scheduled around Little League games on the 60ft base path fields. Our home field has traditionally been Milton, but some games have been assigned to Rehoboth due to field availability. Please note District 3 (Sussex County) does NOT participate in Junior Softball during the regular season. We may opt to field a Junior team for All Stars. Otherwise, girls from 13-16 all play on the same team and play at the Senior level.

Please note that All Star uniforms are NOT part of your registration fee. If your child is selected for All Star's, you MAY be asked to pay for the uniform as an additional fee. The league will cover the registration fee and insurance for this tournament.
World Series dates for 2013 in Roxanna have not been announced yet. Check with your local Little League for the opportunity to play at the World Series as part of the Pat Knight Tournament (10 year old girls). This is a great opportunity for the younger girls to be part of this atmosphere.
District III (all of Sussex County) is responsible for providing "workers" for this event. ALL of this is achieved through volunteers and donations. Little League does NOT fund this event. Check out the site for further information. Please consider volunteering or donating to this worthwhile local event which generates $1.6 million for local Sussex County businesses!
