I just arrived at the ballpark for Game 1 of the weekend series between No. 11 Mississippi State and No. 13 Ole Miss. I won’t be able to do live updates tomorrow due to the football scrimmage. It’s an overcast night and cooler than usual so that may affect the crowd numbers. MSU is wearing maroon hats, maroon “MS” jerseys and white pants while the Rebels are in navy hits, navy jerseys and white 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.
