Win or lose on Wednesday, the Southern Miss baseball team would have been playing its second game of the Conference USA Tournament today at MGM Park in Biloxi,
But shoulda, woulda, coulda seems to be the new normal as a result of the coronavirus pandemic which is having a profound effect on the world of college baseball and an even greater impact on the world as a whole.
Southern Miss Head Baseball Coach Scott Berry said, “I just feel like every day I wake up and it’s the same at-bat and I just keep fouling off the pitch and staying alive and hoping to square one up and give me some direction on where I go. So everybody is in the same situation, and I think that’s what we all need to reflect on. What we need to really do is concentrate on is those that have certainly lost lives and loved ones to the COVID-19 virus, those that haven’t been at work for a long time, the unemployment, everything that goes into this. Certainly you can wake up and say hey, somebody has got it a lot worse than we do as college baseball coaches or college baseball players.”
The Golden Eagles won the Conference USA Tournament each of the past two seasons.
