The Peninsula Pilots are a summer collegiate baseball team in the Coastal Plain League from Hampton, Virginia. Pilots get to play in the historic War Memorial Stadium, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2018. Athletes from around the country come to show off their skills and keep them sharp during their college offseason. For the past 11 seasons the team has been led by head coach Hank Morgan, who has been with the Pilots organization for over 17 years. Many players who come through the Pilots organization get called up to the Major leagues. Take first baseman for the Washington Nationals, Ryan Zimmerman for example, who played with the Pilots during their best recorded season to date and won their first division title. College freshmen, sophomores and juniors come from school?s at all levels. Division I, II, and III come together to play summer ball with hopes of being seen by a scout that would eventually want to draft them to their major league organization.
