We Mississippians often consider ourselves as a football state and for good reason. Friday nights and Saturday afternoons and nights are special. Our state has produced far more than its share of the greatest football players in the history of the sport.
But you could make a case - and I will - that baseball has made a Magnolia State case for itself in recent years. In particular, Mississippi’s college baseball teams have far surpassed their football counterparts’ success rate in recent seasons.
