Norfolk Voyagers Baseball Club
2018 TSL Remaining Schedule – revised 7/6/18
Tournament Format: Round Robin Bracket Play, followed by semi-finals and Championship.
All 11 teams have been drawn into 4 brackets (3 teams in 3 brackets, 2 teams in one bracket).
Bracket A: Legends, Sea Monsters, Daredevils;
Bracket B: Shredders, Hawks, Knights;
Bracket C: Fightin’ Crabs, Suns, Waves;
Bracket D: Voyagers, Seagulls;
Each bracket will play a round robin format, with each team playing the other two teams in their bracket. The team with the best record will advance from each bracket.*
*in the event of a tie, runs allowed will be the tie breaker. If runs allowed is used to break a three way tie, and two teams have the same runs allowed, then head to head results between those two clubs will break that tie.
The four teams who advance from bracket play will meet in head to head competition in our semi final games, with the winners advancing to the Postove Cup Championship game.

Head Coach: Gary Lavelle
With over twenty years of professional pitching experience under his belt, Coach Gary Lavelle will be an incredible asset to to the Tidewater Collegiate Summer Baseball League and our players. He spent most of his his pro pitching career with the San Francisco Giants where he was twice named a National League All-Star and held the record for most game appearances as well as being listed in the top 10 for saves and wins.
Coach Lavelle also played pro ball for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Oakland Athletics before deciding to move from the mound to the coaches’ box, where he had a strong desire to work with youngsters in developing their baseball ability, sportsmanship and leadership. As head coach of Greenbrier Christian Academy in Chesapeake, VA, Lavelle was named TCIS Conference Coach of the Year for six consecutive years, as well as a seven-time Virginia State Independent Schools Coach of the Year. Lavelle’s team was a four-time winner of the Metro Conference Championship, a six-time winner of the Division I Virginia State Championship, and winner of the Division II Virginia State Championship in 1999.
In 2000, Coach Lavelle returned to the Big Leagues as a Pitching Coach for the New York Yankees where he culminated his career as the 2004 Eastern League All Star Game Pitching Coach. After five years with the Yankees, Lavelle decided to return to Greenbrier Christian Academy where he had found his true calling. Over the next 10 years, his team went on to win the Virginia Independent Schools State Championship four times and Lavelle was named Coach of the Year for each of those years.
Coach Gary Lavelle officially retired from Greenbrier Christian Academy at the end of the 2016 school year, and is currently the Head Baseball Coach of the Bryant & Stratton College Bobcats, where he continues to help develop and mentor young student athletes and is establishing what will become one of the premier junior college programs.
