Diamond Dogs Begin Preseason Practice Monday
Head coach Ron Polk, set to begin his 26th season at Mississippi State, will send the 44-player MSU squad through individual hitting and pitching drills Monday afternoon in the indoor batting/pitching range at Dudy Nnoble Field beginning at 2:10 p.m. and then assemble the entire squad for an evening session on Shira Fieldhouse turf beginning at 8:45 p.m. Mississippi State returns 21 lettermen in 2005, including six starting position players, the designated hitter and 12 of the 13 hurlers that threw for MSU's 35-24 edition in 2004. Junior outfielder/pitcher Brad Corley headlines that group after batting .380 with 19 home runs and earning first-team all-America and All-Southeastern Conference honors in 2004. The Bulldogs open their 2005 campaign and a 33-game home schedule Feb. 25-27 with a three-game series against Eastern Illinois. One of Mississippi State baseball's first rites of the new season unfolds this weekend at Dudy Noble Field with move-in days in State's famed outfield terrace. Nearly 75 trucks, trailers and other vehicles will be driven, towed and pushed into their assigned season-long parking areas along three rows beyond the outfield fence beginning Friday (Feb. 12).
