The VMI baseball team had several outstanding performances in the 2022 campaign. The Keydets won five of six games during the early portion of the season and swept a three-game series with Lafayette College to open the home schedule in Gray-Minor Stadium. VMI also won weekend series with The Citadel and Binghamton University.

Zac Morris ’23 and Tyler Kaltreider ’25 were honored by the Southern Conference after the regular season concluded.

Morris earned Second-Team All-Conference honors at second base by the league’s media members. The redshirt sophomore from Suffolk, Virginia, heated up at the plate in conference action, starting in 20 of 21 games. He hit .408 with five doubles and six home runs for a .711 slugging percentage. He drew 10 walks to help push his on-base percentage to .477, and he had team highs of 15 runs and 18 RBI. Kalteider, from Warrenton, Virginia, earned a spot on the coaches’ All-Freshman Team. The right-hander started once in each of the seven SoCon series, posting a 3-2 record with a 5.50 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 34 innings. He was a part of one combined shutout.
