MOREHEAD CITY, NC–The Morehead City Marlins will host game 1 of the first round of the 2022 Coastal Plain League (CPL) Petitt Cup Playoffs at Big Rock Stadium and tickets are on sale now! The Marlins won the CPL East Division First Half Championship, which ended on June 26th, by finishing the first half of the season with the best overall Win-Loss record at 18-6. 

Head Coach Sam Carel, who will be managing the East CPL All-Star Team on Sunday, July 10th in the 2022 CPL All-Star Game at Ting Stadium in Holly Springs, NC, is excited to have clinched the playoff berth, but knows there is more work to be done to accomplish the goal of winning a championship. 

“The goal every year is to compete for and win the Petitt Cup,” said Carel. “Obviously, in order to do that, you must qualify for the tournament. By winning the first half, we took care of business and secured a spot in the postseason. We are excited to have earned the opportunity to play August baseball and look forward to continuing to get better on the field in the second half to further position ourselves for a championship run!”

Game 1 of the East Division Championship, a best-of-three series, will be played on Sunday, July 31st at Big Rock Stadium. The Marlins will host the winner of the second half of the season from the East Division, or the team that finishes with the second-best record, should the Marlins find themselves atop the division when the regular season ends on July 30th. 

The Morehead City Marlins entered the 2022 season having advanced to the CPL Finals for three straight years, winning two Petitt Cup Championships during that span.
