Team Bio[edit]

Founded as an expansion to the Coastal Plain League in 2000, the Peninsula Pilots are a Summer Collegiate Baseball team based in Hampton, VA. The Pilots are named for the Peninsula Pilots of the Carolina League who played in Hampton until 1992. The modern incarnation of the Pilots has returned baseball to Hampton, VA with a great deal of success and have since hosted some of the most talented collegiate athletes from throughout the United States.

The Peninsula Pilots are dedicated and designed to provide minor league level competition for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball. The Pilots operate in the model a Minor League team: playing nightly before fans in stadiums which seat thousands, using wood bats and minor league specification equipment, and experiencing road trips between games. Like all other summer collegiate players, Peninsula Pilots are unpaid in order to maintain their NCAA eligibility, and live with host families in the same manner as Single A and Independent League players.
