2014 was a very good year for Virginia baseball. The Cavaliers made their first trip to a College World Series Finals, where they were defeated in a best-of-three game series by Vanderbilt. UVA posted a 53-16 record - its fourth 50-win season in the last five years - winning the Charlottesville Regional and Super Regional en route to its third trip to Omaha in the last six seasons. As the tournament's No. 3 national seed, UVA won four games at the CWS in reaching the CWS championship game. Nathan Kirby earned First-Team All-America honors and was tabbed the Co-ACC Pitcher of the Year; he also was one of a record eight Cavaliers named to the All-ACC Team.
Pitching and defense propelled the Cavaliers, as UVA recorded the second-lowest ERA in program history (2.23) and the best fielding percentage in the school annals (.981). UVA ranked second nationally in ERA and fourth in fielding. Nick Howard set an ACC record with 20 saves and then was selected in the first round of the MLB Draft, one of eight Cavaliers to be drafted in 2014. Howard and Mike Papi joined Kirby as 2014 All-Americans.
