Mississippi State baseball making third straight trip to Omaha

The Mississippi State baseball program is still in search of its first ever national championship, but the Bulldogs continue to give themselves every opportunity to win it all.

They are the nation’s only team making their third straight trip to the College World Series hence the name OmaDawgs.

During their Super Regional series win against Notre Dame, they broke the NCAA attendance record for a three-game series.

It’s hard to believe none of this was even possible at this time last year, making MSU’s culture all the more special and the ride back to Omaha all the more worthwhile. Mississippi State Head Baseball Coach Chris Lemonis said, “Well, it was here when we got here. Obviously, when you decide to go to Mississippi State, you’re going to a program that that’s the aspiration. That’s why we have the ball park we do, the fan base we do, our goal is to keep it moving and keep it moving forward. And the nice part is all these young players in the program right now, they’ve experienced it, they’ve won it, and that just continues to grow and sets the expectation even higher. And that’s where I’m thankful that Tanner and Rowdey decided to come back. I’m so happy for them. And last year at this time, we didn’t know what they were going to do. And coming back and being able to go to Omaha for a third time with the park packed, it just makes up for a lot that we lost last year.”

MSU is 10-1 in Regional and Super Regional games under Coach Lemonis, but went just 1-2 in the 2019 College World Series.
