The 2019 season may be over for the SwampDogs, but there is exciting news that was announced on Wednesday. The Coastal Plain League named their first and second All CPL Teams and four SwampDogs made the lists.
"This group of guys is well deserving of this honor. They played hard all season and it's great to see them get recognized", said SwampDogs Assistant General Manager, Clint Narramore. "The 2019 team was a special group of guys and they were fun to watch night in and night out. These four were great contributors in our success in making the playoffs."
The SwampDogs are looking forward to the 2020 season, which will be their 20th summer of fun. They are members of the Coastal Plain League.
