Andy Pagnozzi dismissed from Ole Miss baseball team
One week into fall practice and Ole Miss’ baseball team is without a key piece to their pitching staff.
Junior Andy Pagnozzi was dismissed from the team earlier this week. In a statement given to the Eagle, head coach Mike Bianco said Pagnozzi was dismissed due to violation of team rules.
The right-hander pitched in the Rebels first intra-squad scrimmage last Sunday and was expected to be vital to the Rebels this spring.
Pagnozzi made 13 appearances during his sophomore season, a drop from 22 his freshman campaign, and did not start a game. The Fayetteville, Arkansas native gave up 14 hits, 11 runs — six earned— and 16 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings of work.
During his freshman season Pagnozzi was issued a DUI. The punishment was handled by the team and he pitched the following weekend.
