The empty suits at MLB Properties really have too much time on their hands as they have given an ultimatum to the clubs of the Cape Cod League that if they continue to use the nicknames of major league teams, they have to get the approval of MLB Properties of all the merchandise they sell at their games and on-line.
If the clubs don’t change the names and not comply to MLB Prop approval then MLB will withhold the $100K they give to the league that helps out greatly in the CCBL maintain the ball fields. If you have never been to the Cape to see a Cape League game the ball fields are all high school fields that are beautifully kept up. The work is all done by volunteers who are lovers of baseball and of their community which doesn’t register with the empty suits on Park Avenue. (tip of the Mets Cap to Spitting Seeds for the link)
