Mississippi State Bulldogs Release 2014 Baseball Schedule

Mississippi State baseballThe Mississippi State Bulldogs have released their 56-game regular season schedule, 35 of which will take place at Dudy Noble Field and 30 of which will see the Bulldogs take on fellow conference competitors in the SEC.

In addition, Mississippi State will face eight different teams that participated in the 2013 NCAA Tournament across a total of 22 games.

While the Bulldogs have a rather difficult schedule, which can be supported by the fact that they will face Vanderbilt, Arkansas, and LSU within a span of 10 games in late-March, head coach John Cohen says they are more than ready to face the challenge.

“We have the best fans out there and want to reward them with the very best season-ticket package possible,” said Cohen. “It is a very challenging schedule that our kids are extremely excited about.”

The Bulldogs will commence their 2014 season with a three-game series against Hofstra in Starkville, which will mark the first time that both teams will face each other. In fact, three of Mississippi State’s first four series of the season will come against teams that the Bulldogs have yet to play, including Holy Cross and Mount St. Mary.

After advancing to the finals of the College World Series for the first time last season, Mississippi State will look to garner their first national championship behind key veteran leadership, as Jonathan Holder and Ross Mitchell will helm the pitching staff, while five returning starting position players will carry the torch on offense.
