I have been to three college baseball games in the state of Mississippi. A game at Southern Miss, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss, I was impressed with all three venues. I had a great time at “The Roost” and the “Left Field Lounge”. I didn’t venture out to the outfield stands at the Ole Miss game but I was impressed with the turnout for a Saturday afternoon game, the day of graduation! Many people showed up dressed to the “nines”. I totally “geeked the game” with keeping book and listening to the game on the radio. Dave Kellum, the Ole Miss radio announcer, I think is one of the best. He seems really relaxed and it flowed naturally, his style works well for me.
This will be a state I will be coming back to next year! I was thinking, if I can work it out, I will hit all three schools within a three day weekend. I would have never have believed just how big college baseball was in the state of Mississippi had I not shown up and seen it for myself. The crowds were awesome, the fans very knowledgeable, and the hospitality will be hard to top!
Well it is Mothers Day, I called my mom and talked to her. I hope everyone else who could call their mothers like I did! I am sitting at Starbucks in Little Rock, Arkansas after going to a game in Memphis, Tennessee earlier in the day. I am feeling a little tired even though I slept well last night. Sitting in the hot and humid weather today will do that to you. I am not complaining! But, this is it for today! I will explain what I did at the game today in tomorrows post!

Thanks John and you’ve given me a new perspective as to what college baseball is all about. Will you be hitting the College World Series in Nebraska? Talk soon. Paul.
