are coming to Cape!
Dear baseball fans,
More than 1,700 of you voted last week and helped name our hometown Prospect League team. Here’s how the vote turned out:
YES! The Catfish will swim into town next spring, and we couldn’t be more excited. We have lots to do before then, so be sure to check back often for the latest news, information for hosting players, roster and schedules, promotions, tickets and more.
Thank you to everyone who voted. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to presenting your Catfish in 2019! Once you get a taste, we hope you’ll be hooked.
Cape Girardeau’s newest baseball team, the Catfish, will debut in the Spring of 2019 as the 12th member of the Prospect League. Cape residents have long loved baseball, and have a rich history of supporting local teams. So, when approached by the Prospect League, a group of local businesspeople and city leaders saw an opportunity to bring affordable, family-friendly recreation to the area. We’ve committed our time, money and talents to developing a team you’ll want to root for, and a game experience you’ll enjoy. We look forward to sharing more about that in the coming months. Thank you for your support.
The Prospect League is a summer collegiate wood bat league for the best college players in the country.
