The 2014 VMI Keydets baseball team represented the Virginia Military Institute during the 2014 NCAA Division I baseball season. The Keydets played their final season as a member of the Big South Conference, as they returned to the Southern Conference in 2014–15.[2] VMI was led by 11th-year head coach Marlin Ikenberry, and they play their home games out of Gray–Minor Stadium.

On February 21, 2014, VMI junior starting pitcher Reed Garrett threw a no-hitter against Lafayette in a 3–0 win. Garrett struck out 13 batters, including 5 of the final 6, in what was the first regular season no-hitter in Gray–Minor Stadium history, and only the second overall.[3]

VMI ended the year with a 25–23 overall mark, and 11–16 in conference play, missing out on the Big South tournament for the third straight year.
