Hyannis Harbor Hawks

Are You Looking For A Fun, Family-Friendly Summer Evening?

Come catch a game at McKeon Park in Hyannis! The Cape Cod Baseball League is the country's premier amateur summer league, featuring top college prospects hoping to showcase their skills. A Cape League baseball game is a can't-miss summer activity for both locals and tourists, and there's no better spot to check it out than Hyannis. McKeon Park is located a block from the harbor and only two blocks from Main Street, making for an ideal night out with the family, or a fun date idea! You can take a walk along the water at sunset, stop by the game, and then stroll down Main Street to find a place to eat.

What Makes A Cape League Game Special

Baseball is America's pastime, and most visitors to the Boston area immediately think of going to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox. It's a classic Boston experience, and certainly worth the trip. That said, it can be pricey. At Fenway, you're likely to pay fifty bucks per ticket, forty to park, and another twenty-five for a hot dog and a beer. If you bring family, the costs can add up even more. If you're heading over the bridge onto the Cape, there's another baseball experience waiting for you that won't break the bank.

Baseball has stuck in America's consciousness for so long because at its core it's a community game, a coming together, from kids playing Wiffle ball to Little League to college and all the way to the Major Leagues. A Hyannis Harbor Hawks game honors the joy and family feel of the sport, without the cost and extravagance. At McKeon Park, you'll be greeted by friendly interns at each gate, with a bucket for donations. There's no price for admission, simply a suggested five-dollar donation to help keep the nonprofit league humming. Attending the game, you'll find local Cape Codders, tourists, and Major League scouts all sharing the bleachers around the field. There are cheap snacks, a fifty-fifty raffle, and a speed pitch stand where you can see how hard you throw. If you've got kids who can't sit still for long, this is the right place to be! On the first base side, there is a large grassy area, where children run around throughout the game while the rest of the family sits nearby on the bleachers.

The biggest draw, of course, and what really makes these games special, is the quality of the baseball. Former Cape Cod League players include Chris Sale, Aaron Judge, and George Springer, and you're likely to see at least one or two future Major Leaguers on the field on any given night. For most of these players, it's their first time in a wood bat league (like the Major Leagues), which means a hard hit ball makes that perfect solid-wood sound off the bat. There are pitchers throwing fastballs ninety-five miles per hour, and scouts leaning forward with their radar guns, trying to pick out the next MLB All-Star. When you go to a Major League game, especially if you don't end up in the box seats, the players can be little figures down on the field. Not at McKeon! The bleachers are mere feet away from the infield grass, offering a unique opportunity to feel immersed in the game.

Another thing that makes catching a Harbor Hawks game the perfect Cape Cod summer activity is that it can be one part of a great night out in downtown Hyannis! Our concession stand has food for the game, including hot dogs, chips, and pizza from Pizza Regina, but if you're looking for a sit-down meal, you're only a short walk away from tons of great options. Consider Colombo's, Alberto's, and the Brazilian Grill for dinner on Main Street. For dessert, try Ben and Jerry's, Colombo's, or if you're willing to drive, Cape Cod Creamery, which is only a few minutes away. If you'd like to take a sunset stroll along the water, the harbor is a short walk from the field and you can stop by the artists' shanties, seaside studios where local artists sell their work. There are excellent dinner options there as well, like the Black Cat Tavern, Spanky's Clam Shack, and Baxter's.

On a pleasant evening this summer, come enjoy the fun and relaxing atmosphere of a Harbor Hawks game. It's the perfect baseball experience, where you can watch a talented prospect hit a three hundred and fifty foot home run, and then watch a group of kids go running out beyond the fence and come back with the baseball as a souvenir. You can get autographs after the game, and have the kind of classic summer night that makes the Cape such a fun place to visit. Take a look at the schedule and make a plan to come by. We can't wait to see you!

Do Your Kids Love To Play? Sign Them Up for the Harbor Hawks Baseball Clinic!

No matter whether you live on the Cape year-round, are here for an extended stay, or are just coming for a brief visit, your kids will love the Harbor Hawks Baseball Clinic. It's a high-quality affordable baseball camp, where kids learn the game from expert coaches and the same Major League prospects that you get to watch on the field at night!

The camp is led by Coach Calhoun, who spent twelve years working in the Minor Leagues of professional baseball. During that time, he was known for developing young talent, and helping players make progress toward achieving their goals. He'll be joined by several of the players on the team, making for an unforgettable experience.

Given the quality of instruction and low price, the camp offers incredible value. It's cheap enough that many families sign their kids up for multiple weeks. Even if you only have a day or two, you can pay the $25 daily clinic fee. It's an amazing opportunity to learn the game, at a price lower than hiring a babysitter!
