Our goal is to create one of the best independent leagues primarily located in the South Eastern part of the United States. We strive to help create opportunities for talented players who are overlooked play professional baseball. We hope to accomplish our goals by providing quality fields, competition, coaching, and development to players in all 3 of our programs. While our goal is ambitious we strive to get there by improving every day.
While this is only our 3rd year in the professional ranks our league evolved from the Tri-County league of North Carolina founded by Robert Ray and friends in 1978. The Tri-County league started in St. Paul, NC and at its peak had 17 teams with numerous past collegiate and pro baseball players who played on weekends for the love of the game. The Tar Heel Kings, Wilson Bruins, Rex Rattlers, and the Lillington A's are some of the teams that carried over from the Tri-County league to Southeastern Baseball league. The Tri-County league was funded by baseball loving families who built baseball fields on private land, drew crowds of 100's of spectators, and kept baseball in communities without a lot of baseball opportunities for players.
In the next decade we hope to have teams in up to 30 teams in 6 states across all 3 program levels. This will bring quality baseball to deserving communities in the South East. Our sole mission is to create as many opportunities as possible for talented players.
OUR VALUES AND CULTURE
Our core value system and culture helps to develop athletes to be successful on and off the field. While our players can't play forever the values, culture, and character we strive to instill can last a lifetime and be passed on to future generations. Our players are the most important part of our organization. Their needs are paramount. Our player revenue and rewards program strives to help players find employment, gain valuable experience in baseball operations and earn their fair share of any profits made by SEBL. Our staff prides itself on working all year to give our players the best experience and tools possible to reach their full potential.
