‘Mr. Cotuit Kettleer’ Dies at 92

ARNOLDCOTUIT – Cape Cod’s baseball community is mourning the loss of a hallmark organizer, volunteer, coach and community member.

Arnold Mycock, also known as “Mr. Cotuit Kettleer,” died yesterday at his Cotuit home at 92 years old.

He moved to town in 1950 and soon became involved with the Kettleer baseball team, fundraising, bookkeeping, assessing, building, recording, cutting the grass and mentoring young players; 40 of his pupils went on to play in the major leauges..

The same year, he became the team’s General Manager, a title he held until 1994.

He is credited as a driving force in the creation of what is today the Cape Cod Baseball League, after fighting to combine two smaller leagues into a single one in 1963.

Mycock was honored by the Cape Cod Baseball League in 2000 as an inaugural member of the Hall of Fame.

He received the American Baseball Coaches Association Meritorious Service Award for proving himself in service to amateur baseball.

The press box at Lowell Park was named after him in 2012, but Mycock was described as humble man who avoided the spotlight.
