Record #:
A look at the history of the North Carolina State Professional Baseball League, the first professional baseball league to operate exclusively in North Carolina. Known as The State League, it was comprised of teams in Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, Raleigh, Wilmington, and New Bern. While it existed for only one summer, it generated an interest in professional sports that would lay the groundwork for later, more successful leagues.
