MSU Friday Baseball Scrimmage Stats and Info

Mississippi State baseball played their sixth scrimmage of the fall Friday afternoon. Included are complete stats and notes. The next scrimmage is Sunday, with a start time at about 2:30 pm.

Notes from the park:
  • The nine-inning scrimmage started at about 3:45 pm.
  • The team will not scrimmage Saturday due to the 11 am MSU-Alcorn State football game set to be played at Davis Wade Stadium. They will play a nine inning scrimmage Sunday.
  • 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.
