The Morehead City Marlins kicked their season off Wednesday and their home opener was Friday night against the Fayetteville Swampdogs. The Marlins are part of the Coastal Plains League, a summer wooden bat league featuring college players.
The Marlins came away with two wins in each of their first two games as a coastal plain league franchise. Crews spent the Friday working to get the multimillion-dollar big rock stadium ready. Officials say more than 1100 tickets were pre-sold for the 1500 seat stadium. And it all is a fresh new look at the coast that could reel in plenty of tourism dollars.
