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."
