BASE­BALL

Starkville Daily News - - ATHLETICS -

weeks of fall prac­tice there is go­ing to be some trial and er­ror in terms of hav­ing a prac­tice plan sched­uled for each day,” Can­nizaro said. “Maybe we are run­ning be­hind

sched­ule be­cause our team needs to get es­corted onto the field at the same time and es­corted off the field at the same time be­cause of ev­ery­thing go­ing on.

“The ac­tual play­ing sur­face is a con­struc­tion zone, so we can’t come and go as

of­ten as we want. We need to take the field as a team and exit as a team, so there will cer­tainly be some trial and er­ror to those first cou­ple of weeks.”

MSU isn’t lim­it­ing it­self to work­ing only on the field at Dudy Noble. The Bull­dogs

will also spend time this fall do­ing drills in the Palmeiro Cen­ter. In ad­di­tion, MSU will spend two week­ends this fall at SmithWills Sta­dium in Jack­son where the Bull­dogs will prac­tice and scrim­mage. Fall prac­tices will con­clude

in the state’s cap­i­tal city with the Ma­roon and White World Se­ries from Nov. 1719.

Whether prac­tices are in Starkville or in Jack­son, the Bull­dogs don’t mind. Can­nizaro and com­pany are just glad to be play­ing base­ball

once again.

“It doesn’t mat­ter where we are prac­tic­ing be­cause our guys know every day is an op­por­tu­nity to win a job, im­press the coach­ing staff and get ready to play this up­com­ing sea­son,” Can­nizaro said.
