Batter Up!

Major college baseball in Rankin County starts next week.  Southern Miss battles Mississippi State Tuesday, March 12, 2013, at Trustmark Park.  The Governors Cup (Ole Miss v. State) and the Ole Miss v. Southern Miss game take place in April.  Check out the Mississippi Braves' website for a complete schedule, more information, and to order tickets.  

Take it from me, your children will remember these types of events.  I can remember my father taking me to Yankees exhibition games down in Miami when I was 5.  I vividly remember watching the Atlanta Braves in Fulton County Stadium not much later than that (Fernando Valenzuela of the Dodgers was pitching against them).  That was thirty years a long time ago!  I may not remember much of the game, but I can recall the sights, sounds, smells, and excitement that enveloped the event.  

All three of our major college baseball teams are formidable, and have all been ranked at some point this season.  We are lucky to have those teams play each other here in town, and Trustmark Park is an outstanding venue to watch them in.
