THE TIDEWATER DRILLERS: MORE THAN A DYNASTY
The Tidewater Drillers are an esteemed youth baseball organization that focuses in not only on baseball, but on important life skills as well. After the inception of the organization, the Tidewater Drillers added fastpitch softball to their list of teams.
Being the second AAU team ever started in the Tidewater area, they produce good athletes, upstanding young men and women, and respected members of the community.
Founded in 1994, Gary Wright was persuaded by a friend named Marvin “Towny” Townsend, who started the area’s first ever AAU team the Blasters. After years of rivalry, the Drillers stand proud at the top of the many youth organizations in the area today.
Producing many great players in the MLB such as Ryan Zimmerman, Mark Reynolds, Michael Cuddyer, and Chris Taylor, a first round draft pick, the Tidewater Drillers are thriving with great players and young men.
“Long after the records of these Driller teams come and go, the values of hard work, honest effort, hustle and determination so inherent in “Driller ball” will long endure in those young hearts who have worn the Driller blue.”
