Rain finishes the post season

August 4, 2016 – Kill Devil Hills, NC

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.

Based on the regular season standing, the Outer Banks Daredevils (12-4) have been award the 2016 Championship. Congratulations to all our players on an outstanding summer of baseball. Your hard work and dedication to the game has been seen all summer, and we wish each of you the best as you return to school for another season of collegiate baseball.
