The Vipers had participated in Reston spring and fall season since 2006. Having dominated during that time span with five division titles and two playoff tournament championships the Reston Vipers struggled through a tough spring 2012 season. From 2006 through 2011 the Vipers compiled a 160-38 record (.808 winning percentage). However, due to multiple rainouts and challenges due to a declining number of available players in Reston the Vipers could only manage a final record of 6-12. It was the only losing season the Vipers ever had in Reston and it turned out to be the last Reston season for the Vipers as well.
Despite the tough season as a team there were individual highlights for the season. Charles “Guz” Guzek led the team in almost all offensive categories with a .760 average, 6 home runs, and 36 RBIs. In addition, Andy Wilm had his most productive season as a Viper with a .700 average while leading the team in hits (42) and runs scored (45).
In addition, with a full roster in early June the Vipers completed a 5-1 stretch in an attempt to salvage a lost season. While this last season in Reston was a losing season the Vipers are extremely proud of the 166-50 record (.769 winning percentage) we compiled over 7 years and 11 seasons which is by far the best record in any league the Vipers have participated in. The 166 wins represent 15% of all of the Vipers all time wins.
