The Daredevils, a collegiate summer league baseball team, will be participating in the first episodes of Bush League: The Show. The team plays in the Tidewater Summer League, made up of five teams from Virginia plus the Daredevils. The season runs from May 26 – August 14, comprised of 40 games featuring elite college baseball players from all across the country.
Notable Daredevils alumni include Ian Thomas, Atlanta Braves; Ryan Zimmerman, Washington Nationals; Justin Maxwell, Kansas City Royals; Brandon Waring, Minnesota Twins; Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers; Mark Reynolds, Milwaukee Brewers; and Kevin Youkilis, New York Yankees. In all, 21 players who have worn the Daredevils jersey have been drafted to play in the pros.
“We’re excited to work with Bush League: The Show to not only highlight baseball but everything it stands for, especially with regard to young men chasing their dreams,” Daredevils Co-Owner Michael Dooley said.
Celebrating America and the ties that bind our communities together through the prism of minor league baseball, Bush League: The Show will be traveling to communities throughout the country to visit minor league teams; profiling unique local characters and longtime fans with inspiring stories; civic leaders and historians with backgrounds on their communities’ place in history; and other fun and interesting individuals who will provide viewers with inspirational and often humorous personal insight into their own life experiences.
“We’re encouraged by the response from individual Kickstarter sponsors and look forward to additional fans helping us reach our funding goal before the campaign ends May 21,” Noonan explained.
