Manteo, NC – The Outer Banks Scallywags fell to the Edenton Steamers 10-1 on opening night for the Premier Collegiate League.
This was the debut night of the Outer Banks Scallywags. After previously being named the Outer Banks Daredevils from 1997 to 2019. The Daredevils team was brought back this season and rebranded to the Scallywags.
The Steamers fueled their lead with six of their runs coming in the top of the second inning. The lone run for the Scallywags came off the bat of Hayden Friese. Friese hit the very first homerun in Scallywags history.
During the top of the 6th inning, a ball was hit to Outer Banks Center Fielder Cole Mascolo, and the ball was completely lost in the fog. The umpires and coaches got together and discussed canceling and delaying the game due to the fog. The game was put on hold for ten minutes to see if it would pass. The fog stayed, and the game was called, due to player safety.
The next game for the Outer Banks Scallywags is Saturday at the Tarboro River Bandits. The next home game for the Scallywags is Monday, June 5th at 7pm, also against the Tarboro River Bandits.
