The Coastal Plain League (CPL) is a wood-bat collegiate summer league, featuring college players from throughout the nation. The league takes its name from a Class D minor league baseball league which operated in the same area from 1937 to 1952. The modern league was formed with six teams in 1997 after founder Pete Bock grew tired of making long trips to see his son Jeff play in the Shenandoah Valley League. The league is currently comprised of 15 teams across North Carolinamarker, South Carolinamarker, and Virginiamarker. The expansion Morehead City Marlins will begin play in 2010.

The 2009 Coastal Plain League champions were the Forest City (NC) Owls. The Owls were also voted as the top collegiate summer team in the country. In 2010, the CPL will feature a three-round playoff system. The 2010 All-Star Game host has not yet been determined.

History

Founding

The league was founded in 1997 by Pete Bock. Bock conceived the idea in the early 1990's while traveling long distances to the Valley Baseball League in Virginiamarker to see his son, Jeff, play summer baseball. Bock, an experiences sports executive, wanted a collegiate summer league closer to his home. He acted on this and the Coastal Plain league began play for the 1997 season.
