Daredevils name Chris Childress 2015 MVP

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!

Thank you sponsors, host families and fans for another great season

Thank you again for your support during our 2015 season. We continue to believe in the value of providing our vacationing families, as well as our local residents, with this great family entertainment and we appreciate all of our sponsors, host families and fans help in making collegiate summer baseball possible in the Outer Banks. As in past seasons, weather was unkind to our efforts, with extreme heat early in the season, followed by rain in the later half, but we still were able to enjoy a great season, with over 10,000 fans attenting Dardevils baseball games this summer, and cheering our home team on to a first place regular season finish and to another league championship.
During our season, we were able to raise awareness and support for many of our great local charities, and our players volunteered over 500 hours of cummunity service work here in the Outer Banks. You can be proud of our Daredevils team as they were winners on and off the field, and represented our area, our sponsors, and the game of baseball with respect, class and a sincere joy in being a part of our community.

Daredevils fall to Knights 5 -0 in Game 2 of LCS

August 5, 2015 – Kill Devil Hills, NC

The Outer Banks Daredevils got shut out 5-0 by the Greenbrier Knights in Game Two of the League Championship Series on Wednesday at PNC Park, First Flight Athletic Complex, tieing the series at one game apeice.

Josh Mason got the win for the Greenbrier Knights. He tossed six innings of shutout ball. He struck out two, walked one and surrendered five hits. Greg Beale pitched two shutout innings in relief, giving up no hits, with one strikeout and one walk, and Colby Rudis pitched a perfect ninth, with no hits, no walks and one strike out, to perserve the shut out and close out the win for the Knights.

With the game still knotted at 0 – 0 in the top of the fifth, Jamison Griffin reached on a walk, stole second, and scored on an RBI double by Bryce Myers, giving the Knights a one run lead, which in the end would prove to be enough. The Knights were not done scoring however, and posted four runs in the 8th inning, capitalizing on three walks, one hit batsmen and RBI singles by Mike Kroll and Evan Roberts.

Bailey Lipscomb started for the Outer Banks Daredevils, and pitched 7 strong innings, giving up only four hits, one run and three walks while striking out five Greenbrier hitters, but still was charged with the loss as the Daredevils were unable to keep pace with the Knights offense.

The deciding Game 3 of the 2015 League Championship Series will be played tomorrow, August 6, 2015 at PNC Park in Kill Devil Hills. Game time is 7:05pm.
