PRESS RELEASE – The Coastal Plain League announced today that it has reached a working agreement with Baseball America to feature a “Coastal Plain League Corner” in each issue of Baseball America starting with the May 31st issue and running through the end of their summer league coverage.
“We are very happy to have partnered up with Baseball America,” said CPL Assistant Commissioner Justin Sellers. “Everyone involved in baseball reads Baseball America so to have the CPL Corner in every issue during the season is great. We’re hoping this will allow our fans to stay even more updated with what’s going on in the Coastal Plain League this summer; and we’re excited to help bring our players, coaches and teams even more exposure nationally.”
The CPL Corner will feature highlights from games, as well as notes about players, coaches, new additions to ballparks, records being broken, alumni notes, and more. Fans can look for the CPL Corner in the college section and college summer league sections of Baseball America starting with the May 31st issue.
