The Coastal Plain League has announced its schedule for 2023. Heading into its twenty-seventh season, the CPL will feature 14 teams across Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
The regular season starts on Thursday, May 25 and runs through Saturday, August 5. The league will feature a two division structure with two teams from each division making the playoffs (August 6-12) The East will be made up of Florence, Holly Springs, Morehead City, Peninsula, Tri-City, Wilmington and Wilson; while the West will include Asheboro, Forest City, Hight Point-Thomasville, Lexington County, Macon, Martinsville and the newly added Boone Bigfoots.
All together, each team will play a 48-game regular season schedule, with 24 league games per club in the first half and another 24 in the second half. Like in years past, the schedule will have a large concentration on regional games within the division but will also feature an unbalanced look. Many teams will schedule non-league exhibition matchups throughout the season as well. Be on the lookout for those on a team-by-team basis.
The 2023 All-Star Show and Scout Day will be held on July 18-19 and hosted by the Lexington County Blowfish. The game will feature 56 of the best players the country has to showcase. It will be preceded by a full scouting combine and USA Baseball’s Prospect Development Pipeline event to be attended by scouts and evaluators from across professional baseball.
