Welcome to Brewster and
Stony Brook Field!
Message from the President
Many years ago when asked about the off season, Rogers
Hornsby replied, “People ask me what I do in winter when
there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the
window and wait for spring.” While I’m sure you had a
more exciting winter than Hornsby, isn’t it great that
summer baseball is finally here?
Welcome to Stony Brook Field and thanks for supporting
the Brewster Whitecaps. Chris Kenney, President
Brewster Baseball Club
We appreciate you visiting us and trust you’ll enjoy the outstanding summer baseball played by our team of high
performing collegiate players.
We’re extremely fortunate here on the Cape — visitors and residents alike. Every summer we all get to savor the best
collegiate summer baseball in America. The ten towns that support the teams of the Cape Cod Baseball League are
really lucky – we get to host more than 300 of the most talented baseball players in the world.
As I’m sure you can guess, it’s no small effort to field a team in the Cape League. Lots of host families, adult
volunteers, interns and coaches are necessary to pull it off. In fact, our annual budget exceeds $150,000. As a volunteer
nonprofit organization, we rely on the help of both the immediate, and, extended community. If you’d like to help,
please go to our website at brewsterwhitecaps.com. See the different ways that you could support the Whitecaps and
amp up your baseball and summer fun.
Again, thanks so much for coming to Stony Brook and supporting the Brewster Whitecaps.

impressive, 599-202 overall record, a .748 winning percentage. He has been

Growing Pros for 31 Years
The Brewster Whitecaps have had many players who have gone on to play professionally.
Here's a list of players who were on Major League rosters during 2018, at least at some point. Some
have changed teams since then. Many more are honing their skills in the Minors, still hoping to punch
their ticket to The Show. Others have played in the Majors and retired, or are not active at this time.
Remember: Every time you watch a Cape League game, you’re seeing an average
of six future Major Leaguers in action. Part of the fun is guessing which ones!

Gage Workman - Second Season with Brewster!
IF Arizona State Sophomore 6-4 200 S/R
Last summer for the Whitecaps, Gage hit three home runs,
three doubles and drove in 12 teammates. He also stole six
bases. Through games of April 28 this spring for the Sun Devils,
Workman hit .331 with five homers and 30 RBIs. Early in the
season, he had an eight-game hitting streak when he hit .441.
He played in 50 games for ASU his freshman year and was
named a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball News.
Workman hit .276 with three home runs and 25 RBIs, including
seven triples which ranked fifth in the country. Out of high
school, the Milwaukee Brewers selected Gage in the 14th round
of the 2017 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
Roger Normand, long time Whitecaps volunteer, retired from the
Board of Directors this past fall. Roger served as our dependable
Finance VP for more than a dozen years. He directed the team’s
finances ensuring a high level of accuracy and transparency.
He also prepared and presented financial reports at every monthly
Board meeting . Working with other Board members, he helped set and monitor budgets
each year for every aspect of the Club’s operation. Roger’s steady hand guided it all, and
every year, it was remarkable how projected income and expenses and the actual totals were
so closely aligned!
As a nonprofit organization, the Whitecaps make detailed annual reports to both the state
and federal governments, as well as the Cape Cod Baseball League. Roger implemented
systems that assure timeliness and precision. Most importantly, thanks in large measure to
Roger’s efforts, the team finds itself on a consistent, sustainable financial footing.
Roger’s commitment went beyond finance. During games he kept track of 50-50 raffle
receipts and prizes. He even applied his considerable carpentry skills to various
improvements at the field, including the bat boxes beside each of the dugouts, the enclosed
bulletin boards on the press box and the annual repairs made in the picnic park.
While the Whitecaps miss Roger’s financial leadership, we don’t have to look too far to find
him. He’s with us at every home game and still working hard — be sure to say hello to him
at the souvenir stand.
How Players Get Picked: The Inside Story
By Christopher Price
Chris Price is an award-winning
sportswriter, having covered the Boston
sports scene for more than 20 years.
He has worked for Boston Sports Journal,
ESPN.com, SI.com and Baseball America, as
well as The Cape Cod Times, The Boston
Globe, The Washington Post and The Miami
Herald. An acclaimed author, he’s written
several books, including, The Blueprint: How
the New England Patriots Beat the System to
Create the Last Great NFL Superpower, and Baseball by the Beach: A History of America’s National Pastime on Cape Cod.
He and his family have been longtime supporters of the Whitecaps – his son was a batboy for five years.
It’s the question that’s asked more often than any other: “How do Cape League teams put together their
rosters?” The most important thing for you to know is that as you sit here reading this, enjoying the 2019
Brewster Whitecaps, the process of shaping the 2020 team is already underway.
Crafting a Cape League roster is a lot more complicated than a few phone calls and handshakes. For Brewster
manager Jamie Shevchik and the nine other skippers across the Cape, it’s a year-round process that’s built on
deep and abiding relationships with college coaching staffs, sharing information with scouts, and finding a
delicate balance between temporary players and full-timers. All
By July Brewster Head Coach while taking into account things like team chemistry and roster
Jamie Shevchik has already depth at key positions.
recruited most of next year’s team.
“It is a very, very complicated process, which a whole lot of
people don’t understand,” Shevchik said with a sigh. “It really is
a 12-month-a-year thing.
“We start to put together our roster for the next year in June, and
by July and August, most of our roster for the next year is
complete,” he adds.
With the bulk of the 2019 roster (theoretically) assembled by mid-
May, Shevchik already had 15 to 20 names in mind … for the
following season. To that end, there are conference calls with the
rest of the Brewster coaching staff and meetings and agreements
with college coaches across America.
“In the six weeks or so leading up to the 2019 season, my
coaching staff has had a conference call once a week to go over
the roster for the next season,” he said.

Picking kids who haven’t played a college game yet It is,
admittedly, an imperfect process. For example, he’s considering
the cases of players who will be college freshmen next year,
which means he’s having to rely on outside voices when it
comes to assessing the talent of 17- and 18-year-old high school
ballplayers. Never mind the fact they haven’t set foot on the
Cape yet. They haven’t even been on a college field. Projecting
how they might do is a dicey proposition.
“We use ‘Perfect Game’ (the world’s foremost baseball scouting
service) to see where the best high schoolers are going to
college. Then we have to wait until after the draft (June 3-5
this year) to see whether they’re going into the draft or going
to college. We also lean on scouts,” he said.
Shevchik: “Picking players “Sometimes, you get it wrong. You’re making an agreement
is an imperfect process.” with a high school kid who has not played a college game yet,
and you’re basing that on information from other people, and
Photos: SportsPix you have to take their word for it.”
Toughest time: mid-May to mid-June
The period between mid-May and mid-June can be particularly difficult. You can cross all the t’s and dot all the
i’s, but a series of events can make even the most carefully assembled roster all fall to pieces in a blink.
“The most uncertain part of the summer for me is the first two weeks of June,” Shevchik said of the process that
includes sweating out the draft, as well as dealing with the whims of college coaching staffs. “You never know
who is playing and who is getting hurt and shutting it down -- and who has to take summer classes.”
To minimize some of that uncertainty, Shevchik has learned to lean on guys — and programs — he can trust.
That’s one of the reasons you’ll see many players from the same schools lace ‘em up for him every summer at
Go with who you know Shevchik: “As you can see, we typically
have a different roster every day for the

have to know is that every team has first 12 days or so of the season.”
relationships with certain teams,” he
explains. “On my team, you’ll always
see guys from Vanderbilt, Kentucky,
Louisville, Maryland and some other
schools, because those are some of the
schools where I have the best
relationships with certain coaches.
“I had a situation earlier in my career
with the Whitecaps where I had a
coach tell me I’d love to send my guy to you, but we only send our guys to another team. That’s when it hit me
that this process is really territorial,” he added. “Like Scott Pickler at Y-D, who has a great relationship with the
West Coast schools. I’m an East Coast guy, so you’re going to see a lot of those guys on my teams.”
Shevchik also has a really simple recruiting philosophy, one that was cemented during Brewster’s
championship summer of 2017: Chemistry Counts.
How Players Get Picked: The Inside Story
Something to prove
“It’s impossible to evaluate the character of a kid when you’ve never met him, but that 2017 team that won that
championship, that was as good a group of kids you will ever come across,” he remembered. “You had guys
like Mickey Gasper who didn’t get drafted and had a bit of a chip on his shoulder. A lot of guys on that team
were like that. We weren’t loaded with ACC, SEC, or Team USA guys. We had a bunch of guys who had
something to prove.
“It taught me that I didn’t necessarily want the first-round pick who was going to Mississippi State and whose
career wasn’t going to depend on what happened on the ballfields of Cape Cod. We’re looking for kids who
will mesh together. I love kids who have a story behind them, guys who the rest of the team will rally around,
like Hunter Bishop. (Arizona State outfielder, Whitecaps 2017-18)”
Shevchik looks for players Recruiting never stops
with something to prove.
But even a tactician like Shevchik has to adjust on the fly.
He understands the team you start with is never the team
that ends the season.
“One of the reasons (Pickler) won three straight Cape
League championships is that he understood the fact that
you have to have a second team — we call it our July
team,” he said. “Eight to ten players who are available in
mid- to late-July as late-season adds. Guys you really have
to have. The joke is that you bring in one team for June and
another team for July, but you need those guys for that late-
season push. We had the same thing when we went on that
run in 2017.”
Photos: SportsPix At the same time, as a manager, you have to be mindful of
the fact that you are holding the careers of young
ballplayers in your hands. It’s something he always takes
into account, especially when it comes to the temporary
players, who are always in danger of being yanked off a
Give temps a fair shake
“I won’t call a temporary player on June 4th and tell him he can’t come. I can’t do that,” he said. “I’ve heard
horror stories about what some other teams have done. We will play a good part of the year with temporary
guys, and I won’t let them go unless I get some sort of assurance from another team or another league that
they’ll have some place to go and play out the summer.”
Ideally, the year-round recruiting process ends with a terrific summer, a playoff run … and the sort of positive
experience that creates a feeder system for Shevchik that will continue to yield returns down the road.
“The goal is to have those guys have a good experience here,” he said, “and then they go back and say
‘Brewster is where we need to send our guys.’ “
Tribute to a Founder: Barry Souder
Last June, Brewster and the Whitecaps
lost Barry Souder, a co-founder and great
friend of the Baseball Club. In 1988,
without a reliable funding source or even
a field to play on, Barry and a handful of
other Brewster boosters somehow
convinced the Cape Cod Baseball League
that adding a team in Brewster was a
good idea for the nation’s premier
summer collegiate baseball league.
Turns out, Barry and company were
right! It’s great when the prize is

High on the Host Family Experience
What’s it really like to host a Whitecaps
player? Kirsten and Geof Deering of
Brewster, along with their two sons, Dan
and Tyler, have hosted the last two
summers. Here’s their take.
How did you learn that host families Cold day in Kansas, but
were needed and what was your warm feelings all around
decision making process?
We went to Whitecaps games regularly
and became aware of the need. We considered it for a couple of years before
deciding to give it a try. It really helped to connect with families who had been
hosts and with Jen Kish, the Whitecaps’ Housing Director. They were able to help
us understand the program. Jen works hard to make the best match for each host
Which players have you hosted? Tyler and Devin prepare to
try out their sea legs.
In 2017 we had Devin Foyle, outfielder with the University of Kansas and in 2018,
Dominic (Dom) Canzone, also an
outfielder, with Ohio State.
What are your fondest memories of
times spent with players?
“More s’mores anyone?” There are so many! We had fun experiencing the Cape with them.
We took Devin on his first whale watch. We took Dom fishing for
blues and stripers. They both loved driving out on Nauset Beach.
Stopping at Sundae School for ice cream on the way home was a
must. Just time at home – playing backyard ball, s’mores at the fire
pit – so many good talks and laughs. Our dog, Sophie, became so
attached to each player, she would wait by the door for him to get
home from games.
What surprised you the most about the players?
We didn’t realize how focused a player has to be in elite college baseball. These guys work so hard to balance
academics, baseball and the rest of life. Playing in the Cape League is a huge opportunity for them. The season
is fast and intense. We admire their dedication.
Did you meet the players’ families?
Yes, each guy had his family visit while he was here. It was a pleasure to meet them. We spent some good
times together and have kept in touch.
Did you set any “house rules” for players’
We welcome them into our home and family. We
expect they will respect both. We try to keep
communication open and comfortable. We have not
had any issues.
Have either of your players gone on to play the

in the New York-Penn League. Dom is having a strong
junior season with Ohio State and hopes to play at the
next level as well. We are eager to see where baseball
and life take each of our guys.
Have you stayed in touch with your players?
Absolutely! We also went to Kansas to see Devin play two games for his college team last April. And this
spring, we took a weekend road trip to New Jersey to see Dom and Ohio State play at Rutgers.
What advice would you offer a family thinking about hosting a player?
Be ready to open your home and heart. It will be a summer you will never forget!

What is it about watching a Cape League baseball game that works up an appetite and a thirst?
We don’t have the answer, but we have the solution. It’s all right there at the top of the hill by the school for
every Whitecaps home game, thanks to the Whitecaps’ food and beverage provider, Nauset Dining Services.
Including the Whitecaps’ exclusive, almost famous dessert sensation, “The Closah” – a lightly grilled glazed donut
stuffed with creamy French vanilla ice cream. Game over!
All profits go to the Nauset Schools’ lunch program and other school programs where needed.
Nauset Schools students are pleased to staff the concession stand, make a little extra money and
serve you fresh, delicious food and drinks. Enjoy!

Salute to Jim Nowak
Last season, the Whitecaps celebrated 30 years as a Cape Cod
Baseball League franchise. Jim Nowak was the team’s field
announcer for the last 29. Known as the “Voice of the Whitecaps,”
Jim left his announcer position and Board membership at the end of
the 2018 season. Many thanks, Jim, for being such an important part
of the Whitecaps family.
Jim would often arrive at the field early to spend time in the dugout
with the players, gleaning information and insights he could use
from his elevated post in the press box. Jim always made it a point to find out which players had family
members visiting, so he could acknowledge them by name during games.
He took well-deserved pride in his leadership role in planning Red Shirt Friday, a day of special
recognition for the contributions and sacrifice of those in uniform, past and present. Working with the
Coast Guard’s Air Station Cape Cod, as well as local police and fire fighters, Jim helped plan the
elaborate pre-game activities, ranging from a special color guard for the National Anthem to tossing out
the first pitch to a full blown military flyover by Coast Guard aircraft.
Far from the robotic style of some public address announcers, Jim always brought personality and
passion to his approach. For many Brewster fans, his familiar, resounding tone as the Whitecaps took the
field at the start of each home game will be long remembered: “Ladies and Gentlemen, your Brewster
Who Does What for the Whitecaps
The Brewster Whitecaps could not exist without remarkable contributions of time and talent from these
dedicated individuals, many on a year-round basis. Please join the Whitecaps in a heartfelt “thank you”
to these people who make sure the work gets done and done right.
