The 2015 season opens on June 5 when the Generals host their cross-county rival Staunton Braves at Kate Collins Field. The team plays a busy 44-game schedule, with the regular season set to conclude on July 25, and the playoffs on tap to begin on July 27.
The Generals, under the guise of Waynesboro Amateur Athletics, embarked on an ambitious initiative in 2013 that put up a goal of having players, coaches and team management contribute 1,000 hours of service to the local community, which the team easily surpassed in that inaugural season, leading to an expansion of the goal for 2014 to 1,500 hours.
A computerized version of the classic board game Stratego, The General does a yeoman's job recreating the original. Your army faces an enemy force across a game board interrupted by two impassable lakes.
The team is operated by a non-profit, Waynesboro Amateur Athletics, which was founded in 2012 with the mission of supporting and promoting youth sports in Waynesboro. The Generals play their home games at Kate Collins Field on the premises of Kate Collins Middle School, and over the years the team has invested significantly in upgrades to the facilities at Kate Collins, including building a softball field adjacent to the baseball field that has been put to good use in recent years by local girls’ softball leagues.
