Following a stint in the New England Collegiate Baseball League, the North Shore Navigators kick off their inaugural season as members of the nascent Futures Collegiate Baseball League with a perfect storm of early-season, home-field showdowns. Athletes from colleges from around the nation convene in Lynn for the summer's 27 home games, including sophomore infielder Alex Markakis, who last spring led St. Joseph's College of Maine to the Great Northeast Conference tournament, and junior pitcher Bobby Dean, who last season registered a 2.86 ERA and pitched a no-hitter against a corps of geese loitering in the parking lot.
Built in 1940, the Navs' home port, Fraser Field, has hosted exhibition matches featuring many Major League teams and future MLB Hall of Famers; the Pittsburgh Pirates' Vince DiMaggio—brother to Joe—hit a home run during the park's debut matchup. Between plays, fans can snag hot dogs and cold brews from the concession stands as tykes trot through the play area or hunt down mascot Chomps the Alligator for a taste of authentic grilled Cajun cotton.
