Sports and the Outdoors

Baseball

The Cape Cod Baseball League, begun in 1885, is an invitational league of college players that counts Carlton Fisk, Ron Darling, Mo Vaughn, Nomar Garciaparra, and the late Thurman Munson as alumni. Considered the country's best summer league, it's scouted by every major-league team. The 10 teams of the Cape Cod Baseball League play a 44-game season from mid-June to mid-August; games held at all 10 fields are free.

Falmouth Commodores. The Falmouth Commodores of the collegiate Cape Cod Baseball League play their home games at Guv Fuller Field from mid-June to mid-August. Players and coaches lead youth baseball clinics in June and July. 790 Main St., Falmouth Center, Falmouth, MA, 02540. www.falmouthcommodores.com.

Biking

Shining Sea Bikeway. The wonderful Shining Sea Bikeway is an 11-mile paved bike path through four of Falmouth's villages, running from Woods Hole to North Falmouth. It follows the shore of Buzzards Bay, providing water views and dips into oak and pine woods; a detour onto Church Street takes you to Nobska Light. A brochure is available at the trailheads. If you're taking your bike to Martha's Vineyard, park in one of Falmouth's Steamship Authority lots and ride to the ferry. Free shuttles from Falmouth to the Woods Hole ferry dock have bike carriers. Falmouth, MA.

Fishing

Eastman's Sport & Tackle. Freshwater ponds are good for perch, pickerel, trout, and more; get the required license (along with rental gear) at Eastman's Sport & Tackle. It's a good resource if you are looking for local guides. 783 Main St., Falmouth Center, Falmouth, MA, 02540. 508/548–6900. www.eastmanstackle.com.
