Baseball season is just now getting under the way. Now, Ole Miss Fans are really excited for our baseball team and why shouldn’t we be! Excluding the hiccup in the mid-week game against Memphis, the Rebels have been excellent. Ole Miss started the season by sweeping No.6 ECU…yeah…you heard that right-SWEPT! The next weekend they took down No.23 University of North Carolina Wilmington in another sweep. The brooms have been busy.
There is no reason why Ole Miss Fans should not be excited for baseball right now. Fans also broke an attendance record during the sweep against East Carolina. We had 33,070 fans in attendance in those 3-games series making that a school record for most attendance. The Ole Miss fans want to cheer on a winner.
Now, I know that the season just started and anything can happen. However, the future looks bright for Ole Miss Baseball and we should enjoy it for right now. Coach Mike Bianco has brought in one of the most talented freshman class in the history of Ole Miss baseball. Freshman like Grae Kessinger, Will Ethridge and Cooper Johnson add hope to this team’s success.
Is this a year that may end with us in Omaha? Rebel fans hope so. We need some good news around Oxford. We deserve some good news around Oxford. WAOM!-The Kid.
