Ole Miss Rebels in good spot

Ole Miss has thrown statistics and stigma out the window in a big boost for its baseball program.

The Rebels, at No. 10, now have the opportunity to show they can match up with some of the best pitchers and players in the nation.

After wining four of the last five games,  Ole Miss is well-positioned for another College World Series run going into the NCAA regional tournament they are hosting beginning Friday.

In the recent Southeastern Conference tournament, the team defeated Georgia, South Carolina and Vanderbilt to earn a regional bid.

Their bats are hot, and the fans in the stands are certainly getting hot with excitement as well.

The Ole Miss baseball program has a lot of community support. It seems no matter where you go, people are talking about if they have tickets for the game and how excited they are to go sit in the stands.

With the team’s momentum, the community support and the excitement going into the regional, the Rebels are going to be a real threat at making a run to another CWS. We wish the team all the best and hope the post-season is filled with home runs and plenty of cheer.
