     He and his family met Curator Dan Dunn and President Judy Walden Scarafile at the museum for the presentation of the gift - a framed poster and newspaper story on the League’s 100th anniversary game played in 1985.

     It was an “old timers game” that commemorated the 100- year anniversary of the start of the Cape League while giving about 30 former players and managers a chance to “return” to the field and play a fun game. The game was held July 13, 1985 at Eldredge Park in Orleans, prior to a Cape League game.

     The gift will hang in the Museum located at 397 Main Street, Hyannis.
