The Coastal Plain League is the nation's hottest summer collegiate baseball league, now in its 11th season.  Featuring 15 teams playing in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, the CPL is certified by Major League Baseball, and gives college players the chance to refine their skills with wooden bats during the summer months.  Players are housed with local host families for the summer and past experiences have been very positive for both players and hosts.
