The Cape Cod Baseball League won’t be able to host any games this summer due to the coronavirus, but that hasn’t stopped organizers of the Wareham Gatemen from thinking of a new way to keep the game alive for kids in town. 

The Gatemen have teamed up with Kool Kone to give out 300 plastic baseball bats to kids on Father’s Day, June 21. 

Kool Kone, owned by Tom and Gail Strom of Marion, will give out the free bats to kids under ten-years-old, complimentary with their first ice cream. Tom Strom said that the giveaway will start at noon, and continue until all 250 of the restaurant’s bats are gone. The other 50 bats will be given to other kids in Wareham by the Gatemen staff. 

Strom said that “it feels great” to be able to do something to keep kids engaged this summer, especially since his restaurant’s mini-golf course will not be open. He added that he used to love playing ball as a kid. 

The brightly colored bats come in red, green, orange, and blue, and all display the Gatemen’s logo. They each come with a plastic ball as well.
