Temporary players fill roster spots for players still involved in the College World Series, tryout out for Team USA or even major league draft choices yet to sign professional contracts, with the ability to earn a full roster spot.
The Cape League is recognized as the best amateur summer leagues in the country by college coaches and professional baseball scouts. Players from across the USA and representing all college divisions are recruited to play in the 10-team loop.*
"Any time one of our players gets an opportunity to play in the Cape League, it's a great experience," said head coach Eric Podbelski. "We're proud of Matt and know he'll represent us well while he's there."
In his two years with the Lyons, Cook has made 48 plate appearances, finishing with 13 hits, which includes one double and four RBIs.
