Jake Mangum

Jake Mangum received his seventh All-American distinction as Perfect Game picked the Mississippi State outfielder to its Freshman All-American team.

Mangum is one of three players from the SEC selected to the first team joining Florida third baseman Jonathan India and Vanderbilt designated hitter Alonzo Jones.

Mangum won the SEC batting title with a .408 average and is the first freshman to lead the league in hitting since Aaron Westlake of Vanderbilt in 2009.

The Pearl native is the seventh Bulldog to top the SEC in batting average and first freshman to do so. Brett Pirtle was the last MSU player to win the SEC batting title in 2014.

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.
