With the recent completion of the 2007 baseball season, a thirteen member team was selected as nominated and voted on by league sports information directors.
"Conference Members are excited to honor the best athletes of an era when competition was intense," stated Commissioner Alan Patterson. Certainly the level of competition will only increase in the Conference Carolinas. The single change is that the name better reflects the location of members based in a geographical area that is highly regarded throughout the country."
