The Cavaliers’ baseball program has reached unprecedented heights under head coach Brian O’Connor, and none bigger than in 2015 when Virginia dramatically won its first NCAA Championship. UVA appeared in its 13th NCAA tournament in as many seasons under O’Connor in 2016 and has reached the College World Series four times in the last eight years, including two trips to the CWS Finals.

Davenport Field opened in 2002 and thanks to the generosity and support of many donors has seen a multitude of upgrades to make it one of the preeminent baseball facilities in college baseball. The facility now seats just over 5,000 fans and houses the home and visiting clubhouses, indoor batting cages, weight room, meeting, film and study areas, coaches’ offices and a Hall of Fame room.
The baseball Coaches 10 program has helped with operational support, the installation of a state-of-the-art HD camera system, retention of the coaching staff and the team’s international trip in December 2014.
