The Latest CCSSL News
The Grand Marshal for the 14th Annual Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Parade will be retired Yarmouth Police K9 Officer and longtime CCSSL player, Peter B. McClelland who will lead the parade. This year’s parade is in honor of Sgt. Sean Gannon and his K9 partner Nero, who together marched in last year’s parade.
The parade will begin at 11:00 AM on Saturday, March 9, 2019 and will Have a group from the CCSSL marching as they travel along Route 28 in Yarmouth. The theme of this year’s parade is the “Spirit of the Community.”
Peter McClelland encompasses all aspects of this year’s theme for the parade. He worked for the Yarmouth Police Department for 30 years and most of those years were spent being a K9 dog handler. Mr. McClelland trained K9 Nero from the time he was a puppy and started training him with Yarmouth Police Officer Sean Gannon, who eventually took him full time.
After the tragic events that took place on April 12, 2018, where Officer Sean Gannon was fatally shot in the line of duty, and K9 Nero sustained critical injuries, McClelland rushed to the hospital where he stood by K9 Nero’s side during his surgery. Mr. McClelland continued to stay by Nero’s side day and night for six days in the ICU. K9 Nero was eventually sent home with Mr. McClelland for three months of rehabilitation. K9 Nero returned to the Gannon home in August.
“The people of Cape Cod were left devastated after the senseless loss of Officer Sean Gannon, and the injuries to K9 Nero. Mr. McClelland’s dedication, compassion and strength during Nero’s recovery along with his continual updates on Nero’s progress, helped to lift the spirits of this heartbroken Cape Cod community at a time when it was greatly needed,” said Desmond Keogh, Chairman for the Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Parade Committee.

Early in November, the Cape Cod Sharks 80's team participated in the 2019 Winter Nationals in Ft. Myers, Fla. The team lost their final game to the Chicago Geezers, creating a three way tie for first place with the Geezers and Peachtree Restaurant from Pennsylvania. All three teams posted 5 and 1 records, so officials had to go to the tie breaker method. Head to head they were even, but Chicago gave up the fewest runs so was declared the winner and the Sharks took second place.
The team consisted of outfielders Hank Baldessarri, Bob Blakeslee, Bob Buck, Rob Robidoux, John Seliga, John Lamberti and infielders Peter Brooks, Ray Castellano, Jack Deschamps, Jim VanBaalen and Chris Sweeney. Jim Parmelee and Vince Van Norman were the designed hitters. Jim Lutes did the catching and Rich Johnston supplied most of the pitching.
Four players were named to the All-Tournament Team: Rob Robidoux, John Seliga, Jack Deschamps and Hank Baldessarri.
The team thanks the league for their support.
