I just arrived at the ballpark for a two-game midweek series against Mount St. Mary’s. I won’t be able to cover tomorrow’s game due to the men’s basketball game against Tennessee but I’ll get Game 1 tonight. MSU is wearing its maroon hats and white and maroon pinstripe uniforms. The Mountaineers are wearing navy hats trimmed in gold, navy jerseys trimmed in gold and grey pants.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
