Wow!! It’s Finally Here
After a long fall and spring, the first game is
around the corner. I can tell that everyone on the team is tired
of playing each other and ready to play someone that counts. We
open the season tomorrow, and I know I am ecstatic, as is
everyone else involved with the Ole Miss baseball program.
The fall and spring went really well. The
pitchers threw a lot of strikes, and the hitters did just as
well adjusting to the pitchers. As a team, we hit about 80 home
runs through both the fall and spring. I think there is more
power this year than last year’s team. I also think that team
chemistry is a lot better this year, which is surprising with
all the new faces.
I think this will be a great year because we have
a lot of depth at each position that will help us throughout the
season. There are at least two players at each position who are
capable of getting the job done and more.
I have really enjoyed the team thus far, and I
think 2008 will be special for Ole Miss. Coach Bianco has done a
great job in getting us prepared for the season. Coach thinks
this year will be a year to remember – as does everyone else in
The key word for every year with Ole Miss
baseball is “Omaha.” I have been here for three years, and that
word is mentioned often because that is our ultimate goal, and
we will never settle for anything less.
The field is undergoing construction throughout
the whole year, but that will have no effect on us playing
baseball and going out there to win each game. The stadium will
be completed next February. Go Rebels!
