The Shrapnel had this to say about the baseball team:

"The 1942 Baseball Team, under the coaching of Major Dey and Lieutenant Smith, had another successful season. Captain of this year's Blue and Gold team was Bob Savage.

The Blue and Gold opened its season against Fishburne Military Academy, and with Savage's fine pitching, and with the support of his teammates, Staunton was victorious (14 to 0).

The Staunton's nine then met the University of Virginia

Freshmen. S.M.A. was once again the victor under Savage by the score of 6 to 0.Next was the contest between Hargrave on S.M.A.'s home field, where Staunton, continuing its winning streak, defeated them, 16 to 0."
