MSU Sunday Baseball Scrimmage Stats/Info

Mississippi State baseball played their 16th scrimmage of the fall Sunday afternoon. Included are complete stats and notes. The next scrimmage is Wednesday afternoon, time to be announced.

Notes from the park:
  • The seven scrimmage started at about 3:10 pm.
  • Freshman first baseman Wes Rea and junior Brent Brownlee didn't play in the game due to minor ankle injuries.
  • Redshirt junior Paxton Pace threw for the first time since the 2009 season.
  • Each pitcher can throw no more than 20 pitches per inning. When they reach that 20-pitch count the inning stops no matter what the count is on the hitter and how many outs there are in the inning.
  • 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.
