February 8, 2019
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Florida State reliever CJ Van Eyk is expected to play in the Cape Cod Baseball League this summer after the FSU season comes to a close.
According to CodBall, which covers the CCBL, Van Eyk will suit up for the Falmouth Commodores, who have won two of the last three Western Division titles.
The CCBL is considered the most prestigious summer baseball league for college athletes. The 2017 MLB season saw 306 former Cape Cod players suit up in the majors.
Van Eyk was one of the premier arms in the bullpen for the Noles in 2017, logging a 7-0 record and a 2.86 ERA on his way to earning an ACC All-Freshman selection.
Luke Weaver is the most recent Seminole to play in the Cape, playing for the Brewster Whitecaps in 2012.
Last season, Falmouth went 24-19-1, earning a post season bid, going 2-2 in the post season.
The Cape's season starts on June 10 and concludes on August 10 with a third game, if necessary, of the league's championship series.
