Do you have what it takes to step up to the plate with the Coastal Plain League?
League Office and CPL Team Internships:
The Coastal Plain League is the nation’s premier summer collegiate baseball league. The Coastal Plain League will be celebrating its 21st season in 2017 and currently features 15 franchises across Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia; all of which are run like minor league teams and play in new state-of-the-art facilities or former minor league ballparks. Each club’s roster is comprised of the top players from colleges and universities across the nation. The CPL provides all the fun of the minor leagues with top quality baseball, great minor league stadiums, fun promotions and contests, giveaways, and much more! Players are housed with local host families for the summer and past experiences have been very positive for both players and hosts. The CPL has had nearly 1,400 alumni drafted and 91 of those – including former AL MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander – make their Major League debut; while another notable alum - Russell Wilson - won Super Bowl XLVIII. For more information on the Coastal Plain League, please visit the league website at http://www.coastalplain.com and follow us via Twitter @CPLBaseball.
The Coastal Plain League offers spring/summer internships each season. So if you are a goal-oriented, responsible, motivated individual, who works well both individually and in a group, as well as having an interest or love for the game of baseball, then perhaps the Coastal Plain League is the right fit for you.
