2019 Summer Ball
Following a 31-win season and the program’s first run to the ACC Semifinals, the Boston College baseball roster spread out across the country to prepare for 2020 for spots on wood bat collegiate summer league teams from coast-to-coast. Players represent the Eagles as close as New England and Cape Cod and as far away as Georgia. A total of 15 players set to return to BC next season are under contract in five different leagues; many of which held opening day the first week of June.
The prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League, renowned as the best summer league in the country for the nation’s top prospects, is scheduled to kick-off its 2018 season on Monday, June 10. Five Eagles are anticipated to play on the Cape this summer, including outfielder Chris Galland and lefty Joey Walsh, who return to the Harwich Mariners and Cotuit Kettleers, respectively, for a second summer. Shortstop Brian Dempsey joins Galland at Harwich after spending last summer in the Cal Ripken League. All-American second baseman Cody Morissette and catcher Peter Burns will each start their summer with the Bourne Braves.
