Prospective Player Application
The Coastal Plain League is the nation’s hottest summer collegiate baseball league. The Coastal Plain League will be celebrating its 18th season in 2014 and features 14 franchises across the Carolinas and Virginia, all of which are run like minor league teams and play in 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! In just 17 years, the CPL has had over 1,100 players drafted and 64 major leaguers, including 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander, Ryan Zimmerman, Kevin Youkilis, Mark Reynolds, Jerry Sands, and Andy Dirks.
Our clubs are responsible for fielding their respective rosters, and typically that process starts in late-August each year until they are full for the upcoming summer season.
If you are a college baseball player, who is in good academic and athletic standing at your respective College/University, have at least one year remaining of athletic eligibility at your school, and are looking to compete in the premier summer collegiate baseball league in the nation this summer, then please fill out the below CPL Player Application. Please give us as much detail as you can regarding the questions asked, and please be sure to check all teams you’d be interested in playing for.
Once we have received your application, we will forward it on to the clubs you indicated. While our clubs will do their best to get back to you in a timely fashion, it is highly recommended that you follow up with a phone call to those clubs 3-5 days after your application has been submitted. You may find the necessary contact information for our clubs on our Team Information page under the “About the CPL” tab on our menu bar.
Thanks for your interest in the Coastal Plain League!
