Cape League set to honor 10 inductees

11 November, 2005



CHATHAM - The Cape Cod Baseball League's annual off-season extravaganza, its sixth annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony, takes place tomorrow at the seaside Chatham Bars Inn.

Scott Wahle of CBS4 in Boston will again serve as master of ceremonies for the festivities, which begin at 10 a.m. After the noon luncheon, Kara Henderson of the NFL Network will moderate an open question-and-answer session with the newest inductees. The public is welcome.

The weekend kicks off tonight with a private inductees' reception at CBI.

The Hall of Fame Class of 2005 inductees include three who went on to play in the majors - Bobby Kielty, Mickey Morandini and Tim Teufel.

Joining them are former Cape League stars Sam Nattile, Pat Pacillo, Jack Sanford, John Thoden and Ken Voges, as well as league administrators Mike Curran and Manny Pena, who is deceased but will be represented by a large family contingent.

Nattile, who signed with the Red Sox and advanced as far as Triple-A Pawtucket, will be presented by PawSox owner Ben Mondor.

Longtime Brewster volunteer and former town team player Tommy Gage will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.

''I think it's a really neat class,'' said Cape League commissioner Paul Galop. ''There are all sorts of generations and a variety of teams represented. The committee was unanimous in its selection of the 10 people. The fact that all those who are living are coming and the big turnout of the Pena family shows what it means to them.

''It's a long day but you could sit with them until midnight and listen to the stories,'' Galop said.
