Guv Fuller Field, behind the Gus Canty Community Center on Main Street, is the game venue for the Falmouth Commodores, Falmouth Babe Ruth League, Falmouth Senior Babe Ruth League, Falmouth High School Baseball and Football, Pop Warner Football, and other activities such as the Military Tatoo. In August 1985 the Babe Ruth World Series was played in Falmouth.
In 2006 and 2007, when the Parks and Recreation Department applied to the CPFund for a total of $335,000 to install field lighting at Guv Fuller Field, it had received $150,000 in matching funds from the Yawkey Foundation as seed money, and another $25,000 in donations. Town Meeting appropriated the requested funds from the CPFund, and the lighting was installed in 2007.
