History of Doran Park and the Bourne Braves
In 2006 the Bourne Braves began playing at a brand new field located within the Barry J Motta Athletic Complex behind Upper Cape Technical High School. The new location allows for larger crowds and the Braves an opportunity to host CCBL All Star games but most importantly gives our fans a world class field to watch their beloved Braves.
On July 8th, 2007 the baseball field was officially dedicated in the name of George Doran, Sr., a longtime Sagamore Beach resident and avid baseball fan. Doran Park was officially commemorated with a sign unveiling and on field dedication ceremony. Highlights of the day’s festivities included George’s grandson, Patrick, throwing out the first pitch along with his Dad, John, and Katherine Doherty, George’s eldest great-grandchild, singing both the National Anthem and God Bless America. John Doran, son of George Sr., was the family member most instrumental in finding this way to celebrate his Dad’s legacy.

In 2008 the Bourne Braves will play their home games under the lights for the first time in Braves history. On June 11th, 2008 the Bourne Braves, the Cape Cod Baseball League, Upper Cape Technical High School, The Doran Family and many members of the community came out to celebrate the newly light Doran Park with a Lighting Ceremony. Former Bourne Brave and Boston Red Sox, Lou Merloni, was on hand to address the players are the privelage of playing in the Cape League and relay some stories of his time in Bourne. It was a truly memorable evening at the lights shone brightly at Doran Park for the first time.
