Two Rebels set to become NWCC Rangers

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

Two Ole Miss pitchers are set to become two of the newest members of the Northwest Mississippi Community College baseball team.

Freshmen John Wesley Ray and Moises Castro are headed to Senatobia to play for the Rangers, who finished the 2015 season ranked No. 16 in the NJCAA Division II Top 25 poll.

Ray, a native of Southaven who played at Christian Brothers in Memphis, saw limited action, appearing in five games for the Rebels in 2015. He gave up four hits and four runs in 4 1/3 innings of work. Ray finished with an ERA of 2.08

Castro, who hails from Walls and played at Lake Cormorant, did not see any action on the mound in 2015.

Both are the latest Rebels to play for the Rangers. In 2015, former Ole Miss second baseman Dalton Dulin led the Division II ranks with 46 stolen bases. He also hit .354 with three home runs, 17 doubles and 25 RBIs.
