Outer Banks Daredevils name Chris Childress 2015 Most Valuable Player!
The Outer Banks Daredevils have named Chris Childress as their 2015 Most Valuable Player. Childress led the team in hits, doubles, triples, runs scored, slugging percentage, on base + slugging percentage, batting average, and batting average with runners in scoring position. A threat on the bases, he stole 10 bases, and defensively, Childress had an All-Star caliber year as well, taking away doubles in the gap from his centerfield position, and daring anyone to run on him.
“Childress is a really good ballplayer, has a great sense for the game, really good instincts, has a plan, works hard, and has a great attitude. We had alot of great kids with us this summer, but I am sure all of them would agree that Childress was our MVP, on the field, in the clubhouse and in the community” said Coach Dooley.
Chris Childress is from Mechanicsville, VA, where he attended Hanover High School before attending College of the Albemarle for his first season of collegiate baseball. Chris Childress (2015 Daredevils MVP / College of the Albemarle) joins former Daredevils Connor Hall (2013 Daredevils MVP / Longwood Univ) and Dylan Harvey (2014 Daredevils MVP / West Va Tech) in the Daredevils Record Book. Congratulations Chris Childress, Outer Banks Daredevils 2015 Most Valuable Player!
