The Coastal Plain League 2015 All-Star Fan Fest and All-Star Game will be hosted by the Florence RedWolves on July 12-13 at Sparrow Stadium in Florence, S.C.
The two-day event will feature a All-Star Fan Fest including live musical performances, All-Star Home Run Derby, All-Star luncheon, major league scout day, and the seventeenth annual CPL All-Star Game. There will be several opportunities for fans to interact with the All-Stars during the event so don’t miss your chance to meet some of baseball’s future stars!
How Players Are Selected:
The 2015 Coastal Plain League All-Star Teams will be voted upon by each of the 15 head coaches and two media representatives for each club. All players will be eligible to be voted on and All-Star candidates will be listed by position on their respective divisional (East and West) ballot, of which the coaches, broadcasters, and media will vote from. Head coaches will not be allowed to vote for their own players, while broadcasters and media representatives will.
The votes will be tallied and the 54 All-Stars will be known. Twenty-seven players will be on the East and 27 will be on the West. Starters will be named based on those players receiving the highest vote tally at their position in their division.
For the second straight year, there will also be a Final Fan Vote, where the final All-Star player for the East and West teams is selected by the fans. The final spots will be narrowed down to five players per division, and fans will be able to vote via an online poll. The players receiving the most votes will be named All-Stars.
How Coaches Are Selected:
All 15 Coastal Plain League head coaches will participate in the two-day All-Star event. The 2015 CPL All-Star head coaches will be the two coaches who win their respective division’s (East and West) first half championship. The remaining 13 head coaches will serve as assistant coaches for their respective division’s All-Star team.
