A Mercersburg Academy baseball player slides into home.

A sign in Mercersburg’s home dugout reads “Tradition Doesn’t Graduate.” That tradition, dating back to 1894, includes five Major League Baseball players (including current head coach Josh Edgin ’06), numerous conference titles, and four Pennsylvania Independent Schools state championships. The Blue Storm plays a challenging schedule that begins each spring with a preseason trip to Florida, and a regular-season slate that features schools from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and the Washington, D.C., area.     

Recent graduates have gone on to compete at all three NCAA collegiate levels and the pro ranks, including the major leagues. Edgin pitched for the New York Mets for six years and spent time in the Baltimore Orioles’ and Washington Nationals’ organizations, and Christian Binford ’11 reached Class AAA as a pitcher in the Kansas City Royals’ organization; he also pitched in the Orioles’ and Detroit Tigers’ systems. Jayvien Sandridge ’18 is pitching at the Class A level in the Cincinnati Reds’ farm system. Other recent alumni have played (or are currently playing) at Bates, Cornell, Fairfield, George Washington, Harvard, Holy Cross, Mount St. Mary’s, Navy, St. Joseph’s, Tampa, and West Virginia.     

The baseball team won or shared the Mid-Atlantic Prep League title every season from 2011 to 2018.         

Mercersburg’s baseball team practices and plays on Cannon Field, one of the premier baseball fields in the area. The facility, which underwent significant upgrades in 2005 in honor of Bruce Eckert ’62, features impressive team dugout areas and a state-of-the art scoreboard.
