PCL All Stars defeat TSL All Stars 10 – 0

July 6, 2023 – Manteo, NC

Under sunny skies, the 2023 Premier Collegiate League All Star Celebration got under way on Thursday, July 6th, at 4:30pm with an all star player meet and greet, followed by our Home Run Derby and our all star game activities included Sven, from Skydive OBX, parachuting into the ballpark with our game ball; Rev. Marc O’Neil, team chaplain and pastor of Mt. Olivet UMC, opening the game with a word of prayer; Manteo’s own “Lighthouse Brass” playing our National Anthem, and Mike Flaskey was on hand throwing out the first pitch and joining the derby hitters for a round of BP himself.

Kenny Schaedel (Louisburg College/Greenbrier Knights) won the Home Run Derby in impressive style. Joining Kenny in the final round were Scott McDonough (Portal/Univ. of Ark. Little Rock/Greenbrier Knights), Khris Morris (Pitt CC/Edenton Steamers) and Davis Hallstead (Univ. of Mt. Olive/Edenton Steamers). We would like to thank all of our Derby participants for putting on a great show for the fans.

The All Star Game, as usual, was dominated by great pitching, with the PCL All Stars taking advantage of a big inning to give themselves a lead they would not surrender. The PCL pitching came out on top, combining for a nine inning shutout, while the offense put a 10 spot on the board.

Ashe Ammerlaan (Bryant & Stratton/Outer Banks Scallywags) was named Most Valuable Player for his dominate 3 strike out performance on the mound during his inning of work.

We would like to say a special thanks to Audra Nelson, Scallywags Operations Manager for putting together a first class all star event.

We would also like to thank Scallywags coaches Alexander and Doss for their tireless work getting the field prepared. We would also like to thank all of the coaches, interns, players and staff for making the 2023 PCL All Star game an event to remember.

We also want to thank Pigman’s BBQ for providing our post game meal. The players, coaches and interns enjoyed every bit, oink and hushpuppy.

Finally, we would like to thank the fans who made their way to Coy Tillett Sr. Memorial Field to enjoy the Home Run Derby and All Star Game and festivities. Thank you for your support.
