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
“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.
