The largest contingent of Crimson Tide players will head to the prestigious Cape Cod League, with six total spending their summers in “The Cape”. Reliever Thomas Burrows will play for the Hyannis Harbor Hawks while freshman Chandler Avant will join the Brewster Whitecaps, and Geoffrey Bramblett is slated for action with the Harwich Mariners. The Cotuit Kettleers will host a trio of Alabama players, including Nick Eicholtz, Will Haynie and the Tide’s 2015 RBI and hits leader, Casey Hughston.
