Congratulations to the Outer Banks Daredevils, 2016 Tidewater Collegiate Summer League Champions. The Outer Banks Daredevils completed the 2016 season with a league best record of 12 – 4, and following the post season rain outs, the Daredevils were awarded the Tidewater Collegiate Summer League’s 2016 Postove Cup Championship.
We are proud of our players, and the way the joined us and our community this summer. They were champions both on and off the field, as they entertained our fans with outstanding play at night, and as a team, volunteered over 200 hours with local non profit organizations, working in our community and providing a positive role model for our area’s youth.
Thank you 2016 Outer Banks Daredevils for another great season of collegiate summer baseball. We wish each of you the best as you continue your collegiate career and beyond.
Heavy rains this morning have left the field underwater again, rendering it unplayable for tonight’s scheduled championship game. Alternate venues were explored, however, the storms left no diamond dry, and with no dry field to play on, the league has been forced to cancel the championship game.
Players have been scheduled to return home, flights have been booked, travel arrangements have been made, and we are unable to extend the season beyond this week, therefore, we have closed the book on the 2016 season of the Tidewater Collegiate Summer League.
