Mississippi State junior pitcher Ross Mitchell has been named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team.

Mitchell leads Phase 2 ministries on campus each month in the Palmeiro Center and also reads to local elementary schools. He also spoke at over a dozen schools and churches throughout Mississippi and his native Tennessee.

“When you live in a city like Starkville that gives so much to you, it’s so important to give back to the city at every opportunity possible,” Mitchell said in a release. “I am just one of many on our team that has been able to volunteer our time and efforts. Our whole team is thankful for everyone who has welcomed and supported us in these efforts.”

Mitchell and some of his teammates spent their winter break in the Bahamas building houses and holding baseball clinics.

The All-American has appeared in 18 games on the mound this season including 11 starts. Mitchell is 8-4 with a 2.10 earned run average with 49 strikeouts and 29 walks in 107.1 innings of work.

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.

    Ross has a million dollar heart! In these times when some athletes are beating up people at frat parties, disrespecting police officers, assaulting girls and driving drunk, it’s refreshing to see a story like this.

      Agreed, Ross is a great kid!
      Oh yea, don’t forget about athletes that arrested for robbery and burglary…

        Oh that’s right Giantrebelbear! Forgot bout that…it was 27 Old Myth football players that stole pillows and clock radios from their hotel…thanks for reminding me.

          Actually Cid he’s referring to the 2 felonies from the mastitis udder school. But good attempt to deflect attention from your team in decline…

    Ross is a great example of the athletes that come to Mississippi State. Some other universities in our state just worry about skill and disregard character. Great job, Ross!

    Oxford is hosting a regional!!?? The NCAA felt sorry for them, since the football team is going on probation. But congrats to the black bear sandsharks, you’ll be ousted from your own regional.

      Keep beating that same NCAA probation drum Karl. You’ve made that same statement for over 2 years and under at least 5 different names on here. Keep saying it another 10 years and it will be as much of a lie then as it is now. Maybe by then you will have graduated from high school…
