MSU Sunday Baseball Scrimmage Stats and Info

Mississippi State baseball had their third scrimmage of the fall Sunday morning. Included are complete stats and notes. The next scrimmage is Tuesday, start time to be announced.

Notes from the park:
  • The seven-inning scrimmage started at about 2:45 pm.
  • Each pitcher threw about 80% to 85% of their full velocity and their match pitch count was 40. After about two starts they will be allowed to throw upwards of 100%. One pitcher, freshman RHP Evan Mitchell, threw about 100% and topped out at 91 mph in his first inning of work.
  • True freshman outfielder C.T. Bradford showed defensively why Coach John Cohen has been praising him so much. He made an outstanding running catch in the right field foul corner that can only be described, as Mary Ann wrote in his scorebook, as WOW!!
  • 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.
  • Highlights from the scrimmage:

  • Hitting highlights:
  • Junior Brent Brownlee was 2-for-3 with a double.
  • Junior Brett Bozeman was 1-for-3 with a double.
