The Coastal Plain League, is a member of the NBC, and is sanctioned by Major League Baseball. The NBC is a group of leagues, whose purpose it is, to show off collegiate talent to Major League Scouts. Select players, from NCAA Universities across the country, can play for the CPL or one of the other great Collegiate Summer Leagues. They get to play in front of nice hometown crowds, and are attended by many MLB scouts, who are preparing for the following season's Major League draft. Here the best play the best, and scouts can see how these kids do, amongst the best of their own.
