The Class D Leaksville-Draper-Spray Triplets was a Minor league baseball team who played in three different leagues between the 1934 and 1948 seasons. The team was a combination of three separate towns from North Carolina (now Eden, Rockingham County, NC).

The Triplets played from 1934 through 1942 in the Bi-State League, winning the Championship Title in 1he 1935 and 1941 seasons.

The team joined the Carolina League in 1945, playing there three years before moving to the Blue Ridge League in 1948. In June of that year, the team moved to the town of Abingdon, Virginia, to became the Abingdon Triplets, folding at the end of the season.
