Mississippi High School Baseball Update

A few of the latest happenings in the world of Mississippi high school baseball.

  • Seminary's Derek Norris, a senior who signed with Delta State, hit his 13th, 14th and 15th home runs of the season Monday against St. Joe and Lloyd Star. He did this one day after his grandmother, who attended all of his games, passed away.
  • Ridgeland High School senior RHP Justin Smith, with his late movement fastball that is in the 84-85 mph range, had 16 ground ball outs and 4 strikeouts against New Hope last Friday, then hit a home run in a 16-15 win over Amory Saturday, then turned around and defeated New Hope again on Monday. He also signed with Delta State.
  • Senior SS Bo Davis of West Lauderdale HS (a Southern Miss signee) hit a mammoth three-run home run on Saturday to knock Greene County's ace, LHP Taylor Kimble (a Meridian CC signee), out of the ballgame. Earlier in the game, Taylor had hit Davis on a first pitch fastball. He later picked him off first base.
  • Last Friday, Prep All-American and MSU signee Mitch Moreland, a LHP from Amory HS, had a no-hitter going into the last inning against Kosciusko and struck out at least 12. The next day his team lost to Ridgeland to end their season.
