“This achievement by the outstanding student-athletes on our Bulldog baseball team marks one of the proudest moments in the history of our great university. After decades amongst the elite in college baseball, these young men have brought home our first national championship trophy in any team sport.
The outpouring of support this team received from our alumni and fans in Omaha, back home in Mississippi, and across the country reflects the storied tradition of our baseball program. Generations of Bulldogs have passionately followed the Diamond Dawgs as the program grew and evolved, and now this team has set a new standard.
I want to congratulate Head Coach Chris Lemonis and his staff, the members of this baseball team, and everybody that has played a role in making this championship happen. I look forward to celebrating this historic accomplishment with the MSU family in the coming days, weeks and years.”
Mark E. Keenum, President
