                        Forest City Owls Internship Program

The Coastal Plain League (CPL) is a collegiate summer baseball league with 14
franchises in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. The CPL is open to eligible
players from NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA and JUCO programs looking to forward their
baseball career beyond college. To get a jump-start on a professional career, the CPL
uses wooden bats exclusively.

The Forest City Owls are the newest addition to the CPL. Forest City is located in
Rutherford County, NC in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The Owls will play
home games at McNair Field, a $3 million stadium set to open in 2008. The Owls will
play 30 home games ranging from late may to early August.

Not only do players jump start a career in baseball, members of the front office “team”
can also gain valuable experience to further their careers in baseball with CPL Clubs.

following areas:

      Group/Season Ticket Sales

Interns will receive a stipend pay of $500 per month, as well as the chance for
