First day of baseball practice

First day of baseball practice

Taking advantage of unseasonably warm temperatures Monday afternoon, MSU head baseball coach Ron Polk opened 2003 season practice with a mound-area meeting of the fielders. The Southeastern Conference legend and his 11th-ranked pre-season team had to dodge rain showers that swept through the area ahead of today’s cold and blustery conditions. Season ticket sales already have passed 3,000 as the Baseball Bulldogs prepare for the Feb. 21 home opener.
