1921 Baseball Team

Led by Captain E.C. Thompson '21 and Coach Doug Neff, the 1921 baseball team was the first undefeated baseball team at EHS in 25 years, finishing the season 11-0. With players like catcher George Morton '23 (HOF 1995), pitcher Edmund "Jelly" Richardson '22, and first baseman Mac Price '22 on the field, the team outscored opponents 83-25. Two of their victories were against college freshman teams, Georgetown and Johns Hopkins, and the team also recorded a 6-0 defeat of Woodberry Forest. During the season, Richardson struck out 104 batters, while only walking six.
According to the 1921 edition of Whispers, "The 1921 baseball season [was] one of the greatest successes that any EHS team has ever obtained."
