I know CodBall has been silent since the end of the Cape Cod season. Normally we chat it up a whole lot more. I didn't want to let last night's dramatic Wild Card Wednesday pass without noting the central role of one of the best Cape Cod hitters in a generation. Evan Longoria, who was perhaps the first Cape League star I followed from college through MLB heroics, capped the most exciting evening of regular season baseball I can remember.
The Chatham A's have a nice tribute to Longoria on their site this morning.
I know Longoria played on the Cape in 2005, but I had thought he also played the 2006 season on the Cape. I can't quickly find a reference for that, however. Did he just play the CCBL's 2005 season?
