Daredevils out for 2012; baseball franchise for sale

By on November 17, 2011

The Outer Banks Daredevils are shutting down operations after 14 seasons.

Team owners say they could not guarantee breaking even for 2012 in the college summer baseball Coastal Plain League.

There will be 14 teams next year, including the Edenton Steamers, who will play in a seven-team East Division when the 54-game season begins May 29. The Outer Banks franchise will sit dormant in 2012, and is up for sale.

The Daredevils were one of the original CPL teams in 1997. The team did poorly financially and skipped the 1998 season.

Warren Spivey bought the Daredevils in 1999. The team moved from Manteo to Kill Devil Hills in 2006 when a group led by Marcus Felton bought the team prior to the season.
