State Championships: 1976, 1979, 1992, 1995, 2001 and 2008.

The Salesianum baseball program was founded in the spring of 1907. Since 1976, the baseball team has won six state championships, most recently in 2008.

For five years from 1935 to 1939, and for two years from 1943 to 1944, the baseball program was suspended due to World War II. From 1958 to 1992, the team was coached by Fr. Robert Kenney, OSFS, who coached 579 games in his 34-year career and consistently maintained a winning record during every regular season. Fr. Kenney was named Delaware's Scholastic Baseball Coach of the Year (1982), was elected to the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame (1999) and the Salesianum School Hall of Fame (2004).

The team has been led by Head Coach Ted Godfrey '93 since 2010.  He is assisted by Joe Bolinski, Michael Reardon and Paul Mulvena (Asst. Coaches), Brent Treml (Head JV Coach), Matt Simeone (Head Freshman Coach), Andrew Ellis (Asst. JV Coach) and Asst. Freshman Coaches Nick Galinskie, Ryan Vietri and Rick Godfrey.
