Middies Program


Benedictine College Preparatory Middies Baseball

Benedictine College Prep’s Middies baseball program was first started by a group of alumni Cadets with a passion for bringing athletics to Richmond-area Catholic middle schoolers. Since its inception in 2006, the program has grown leaps and bounds and currently services hundreds of middle school athletes in three sports: football, baseball, and lacrosse. Middies Program provides athletic teams for middle school boys from area Catholic, independent, and public middle schools. Home schooled students are also welcome to join our program. We welcome all fifth through eighth-grade boys to contact us today.

Practices and Games

The teams practice at Tuckahoe Little League and play games (some practices) at Benedictine Schools of Richmond Abbey campus (12829 River Road). Away games are played at various local schools. Middies baseball begins practice in February. For questions regarding Middies baseball, contact Chris Jones:

Why Play Middies Sports

Middies baseball is a great opportunity for 6th-8th grade boys to learn and grow in their sport, gain confidence, build character, as well as meet fellow athletes from different schools and build new relationships. In addition, Middies baseball players have an opportunity to work with high school coaches.

About Our Facilities

The Benedictine Schools of Richmond operates Saint Gertrude High School and Benedictine College Preparatory. Together the schools share a peaceful, modern, and sprawling campus including the campus’s new, world-class athletic facilities, an auditorium, newly renovated baseball field, athletic fields, and a new state-of-the-art gymnasium.

Participating in Middies was definitely a great introduction to the brotherhood that is Benedictine. Deciding to play Middies is the best decision I have ever made since it led me here.
