Virginia Generals

From BR Bullpen

In 1988, the Virginia Generals replaced the Peninsula White Sox in Hampton, VA. A co-op club, they had the worst record in Organized Baseball that year at 41-99. Joe Breeden's team allowed 834 runs, 111 more than anyone else, while scoring 511, 93 less than the next-worst. The Carolina League doormat did have two future big-leaguers appear - Brian DuBois (14-9, 4.17, spending about two-thirds of the year with the Hagerstown Suns) and SS-3B Stu Cole (.272/~.362/.323). DuBois led the league in hits (195), runs (113) and earned runs (85) allowed, while OF Ondra Ford (.255/~.313/.349, 17 SB) led in strikeouts (134).

The next year, the team became the Peninsula Pilots.
