Saturday July 9, 2016 was "Driller Day" during the Collegiate Drillers doubleheader at Virginia Wesleyan College. Players from the 10u, 12u & 13u youth Drillers teams attended the games and were treated to a Drillers "Field of Dreams" event between games by the Tidewater Summer League commissioner Larry Collins.
Coach Ryan Henry also gave a motivational speech to the collegiate and youth players. He told them they would have to "Continue to Grind" to achieve their dreams of being college baseball players.
"Don't take an off day. Don't rest. Continue to grind because there is somebody nipping at your heels, they want to be on the field"
