Coastal Plain League Announces Updated 2020 Schedule with Mid-Atlantic and Southern Divisional Play
Due to the continuing incidence of the COVID-19 virus and governmental guidance regarding operations, the Coastal Plain League has made the following changes for the 2020 season schedule.
The Coastal Plain League Mid-Atlantic Division has been formed from the following four North Carolina and Virginia teams: the High Point-Thomasville HiToms (NC), Martinsville Mustangs (VA), Peninsula Pilots (VA) and Wilson Tobs (NC). The CPL Mid-Atlantic Division will start play within their region on July 1. The official schedule for the CPL Mid-Atlantic Division will be released shortly.
Meanwhile, the Coastal Plain League Southern Division of Georgia and South Carolina has been formed with three teams: the Lexington County Blowfish (SC), Macon Bacon (GA) and Savannah Bananas (GA). These three teams will begin playing a series of games starting July 1. The official schedule for the CPL Southern Division can be found at www.coastalplain.com.
Due to the continued governmental restrictions in North Carolina, several teams have decided to forego operations this summer, including the Asheboro Copperheads, Forest City Owls, Gastonia Grizzlies, Holly Springs Salamanders, Morehead City Marlins and Wilmington Sharks. The Florence RedWolves (SC) and Tri-City Chili Peppers (VA) have also decided to wait until next year.
In all cases where games are being scheduled, strict procedures for the safety of players, fans, and employees are being followed in line with governmental guidelines.
