The Big Rock Fall Baseball League got underway on Monday, September 14, 2020 at Puck O’Neal Field in Morehead City and gave students at Croatan High School, West Carteret High School, East Carteret High School, and Havelock High School a chance to try out for the new league.
The Big Rock Fall Baseball League is a new league in Carteret County NC and a collaborative effort by the Morehead City Marlins baseball team, the Town of Morehead City, and the Big Rock Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament.
Organizers say the new league gives local area high school baseball players, who saw a loss in game play after COVID-19 Coronavirus restrictions earlier in the spring, a chance to regain time lost participating in a sport they love.
Organizers say that around 72 players attended league tryouts along with a half dozen coaches. Buddy Bengal, owner of the Marlins, said organizers were expecting around 50 players which will require some thinking on the slated 12 game and four team schedule.
Buddy Bengal reports that the new fall league will not charge admission and is simply an opportunity for area high school baseball players to play the game they love after the Coronavirus affected the spring season.
