Thank you again and we hope to see everyone at the ballpark for our 2015 Opening Night, June 1, 2015. The gates will open at 6:00pm and the first pitch will be at 7:05pm. Come out and join the fun and help support our home team, the Outer Banks Daredevils.

Host Families Needed

One of the key elements in the success of any collegiate summer baseball program is the willingness of local families to serve as Host Families. These families take the players into their homes for the summer, providing a safe and comfortable place for them to live and make it possible for us to have a local team. Collegiate summer baseball would not be possible without host families, and we appreciate those of you who have served as host families during past seasons. Your generosity and hospitality has made it possible for the Outer Banks Daredevils to exist year after year, and we are hopeful that once again, you, and many others, be willing to house a player this summer as well. For more information, visit our Host Families page.

Sponsors Needed

Collegiate summer baseball provides great, family friendly entertainment for both our local residents and the thousands of families that join us each summer for their vacation. The generous support of our local business community provides the critical financial support necessary to bring America’s Favorite Pastime to the Outer Banks each summer.   2015 Sponsorship Opportunities are available, and a great way to receive effective, affordable advertising while supporting our local baseball team. Visit our SPONSORSHIPS page for more information.

It took the Daredevils eight innings to score a run, when Brett Johnson singled home Brad Keen from second base. However, that would cap off the scoring with a final score of 3-1.

Childress reached second on a passed ball as Barriere squared for a bunt attempt, but pulled back to allow the ball to reach the backstop. On a 2-2 count, Barrier hit a soft liner down the third-base line in the outfield to score Childress from second base to win the game 4-3.

With the win, the Daredevils take a 1-0 series lead, while the Drillers had their winning streak snapped at 17 games. The Drillers’ last loss previously to Wednesday was against the Daredevils June 23.

The Daredevils look to close out the series Thursday against the Drillers at First Flight Field. Gates open at 6, with first pitch to follow at 7:05. If the Drillers do win Game 2, then the decisive Game 3 is scheduled to be played Friday in Kill Devil Hills.
