FSNextTV: Ross Mitchell Interview

FSNextTV: Mississippi State junior pitcher Ross Mitchell talks one-on-one with Gene's Page, October 8, 2013.



How much confidence did playing in the national championship series portion of the College World Series give you and the team in general?
"I think every team in the nation sets their goal of going to Omaha. Only eight teams get to go to Omaha and every team has that same goal. But once you make it there and make it to the final round of the championship it gives you such a different kind of confidence - we've been there, we've done that, we can do that (again), especially with the team that we have now. We lost some key players but we have some very good players returning and we had the second best (recruiting) class in the nation. That in itself gives you even more confidence in that not only were we great last year but we are going to be even better. Everybody on our team feels that way. Once you taste it you want to get back there. We are ready to get back there and we know that we can. I feel like we have the team that can do it."

Do you feel that this team is more driven due to what they accomplished last season? No team in the history of MSU sports has achieved what the MSU baseball team did last season.
"Yeah, you can see it. You can see it in stuff such as the weight room. The way that we work so hard on things matters although it's not necessarily a skill set. You can tell that we are pushing it in every single thing that we do. We are encouraging each other, trying to get the new guys better because we know that we are going to need them due to the loss of Kendall (Graveman) and Chad (Girodo). Of course the returning players are working hard and also trying to coach up the new guys so they will be able to step in the shoes of the people that we lost and make a big impact."

You were able to experience something different this past summer. You were able to coach a summer travel team. Did that experience give you a better understanding of what the coaches at MSU go through?
"Yeah, absolutely. I coached one team two weekends and we didn't win a game. We did tie one game. It was rough, but it was fun. We did win two games off of walk-off steals of home plate. You don't see that very often, so that was me pulling out my wits.

"But it was tough because you want to please every player and that is impossible. And when you are coaching younger guys you have to deal with their parents, and they want their kids to be out there more than he might have been. That is hard to do. But it was definitely a fun experience that I enjoyed a lot, especially getting to impact (the lives) of some of the younger kids."

You are not only passionate about baseball but you are also a very religious person. You organized an event this past summer called the Outlet. Explain what that is and why you decided to do it.
"I was on my way back to school and my buddy called me and told me that he wanted to come to my school and preach. I wondered how would that be possible. Then I thought that I could do something. I had a pretty good platform because we had gone to Omaha. I talked to Matt Jolley, the (MSU baseball) team chaplain, and a couple of other guys such as Tyson Lee. We organized the first-ever The Outlet and brought in a worship band and a preacher to come in and speak. We had a very good turnout, about 300 people. Hopefully, we will be able to do it about once a month. And, hopefully, it will be a good outreach for people to bring their non-believing friends and also to just grow in your own faith. It's going to be exciting to see where that (event) goes (in the future)"
