Former Gateman inducted into league Hall of Fame
A former Wareham Gatemen player, Tyler Horan, is part of the 20th class of inductees into the Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame.
Tyler Horan was a star outfielder for the Wareham Gatemen in 2012, and helped the team secure the Cape League championship.
Horan hit 16 homers, tying Dave Staton’s modern-day league wood bat record set in 1988, and totaled 52 hits and 40 RBI. In the playoffs, Horan batted .292 with two homers and seven RBI as Wareham defeated Y-D, two games to one in the championship series, and was named to the All-League team.
Horan, a Middleboro native, was named the Cape League’s top New England Prospect.
He went on to be drafted by San Francisco and played in the minor leagues for five years, batting .260 with 55 homers and 191 RBI.
Harvey Shapiro, who was an assistant Gatemen coach one season, was also inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Charles “Buzz” Bowers, Bob Corradi, Harold Nelson, Kevin Newman, Cliff Pennington, and Sol Yas round out the class. The inductees will be formally celebrated on November 21 at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Harwich.
