Lively Tales About Dead Teams

South Coast League (2007)

leave a comment

The South Coast League was a low-level independent baseball league with teams in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.  The SCL was organized as a single-entity business model and lasted just a single season in the summer of 2007.  The league imploded financially and organizationally over the winter of 2007-08, and effectively folded when CEO Jamie Toole resigned in late March 2008.

The league is primarily notable for producing a viral video of ex-New York Met Wally Backman throwing a temper tantrum as manager of the league’s South Georgia Peanuts club.  A film crew followed the Peanuts throughout the season and many of the clips – as well as an uncensored DVD – are available at www.playingforpeanuts.com.
