Encyclopedia > Coastal Plain League

The Coastal Plain League (CPL) is a collegiate summer league, featuring top-notched college players from throughout the nation. The CPL returned to fill a void in summer baseball. With many summer leagues in operation at the time, there wasn’t really one located in the southeastern U.S.

League President Pete Bock first got the idea in the early 1990’s when his son, Jeff, a star pitcher for Barton College, was spending his summers playing in the Shenandoah Valley League. After making several long trips to see his son play, Bock, a long-time minor league sports executive, began wishing there was a summer league closer to home. A few years later, he put his ideas into action and the new Coastal Plain League was formed. Barton College is a private college located in Wilson, North Carolina. ...

Now, heading into its 10th Anniversary season, the CPL is the biggest summer collegiate baseball league in the country, featuring 15 teams across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The latest addition to the league was the Columbia Blowfish, which will enter the league for the 2006 season.
