Centered on textile mills the employees who worked in them, the league was independent, meaning that it was not a part of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues. The league's rules permitted only four players per team who had prior professional baseball experience. The league became the Carolina League between 1936 and 1938, and the rule limiting professional players' involvement was dropped during those years.[1]
