MSU Saturday Baseball Scrimmage Stats/Info

Mississippi State baseball had their second scrimmage of the fall Saturday morning. Included are complete stats and notes. The next scrimmage is Sunday, start time approximately 1:30 pm.

Notes from the park:
  • The seven-inning scrimmage started at about 11:20 am.
  • Each pitcher threw about 80% to 85% of their full velocity. After about two starts they will be allowed to throw upwards of 100%. Junior RHP Devin Jones did throw hard in the first inning he pitched, topping out at 94 mph.
  • The maximum pitch count for each pitcher was 40 pitches, hence the reason Pollorena didn't throw his full three innings.
  • During the fall, the team is using the new metal bats that have been approved to hit with in college this year. When you hear the bat hit the ball it almost sounds like a ball hitting a wooden bat.
  • A new baseball commitment for Mississippi State. According to Christian Cox via a text she sent to me, Amory HS senior RHP Will Cox has committed to Mississippi State. More on this later....
