Mississippi State baseball one win away from forever
After beating Vanderbilt 13-2 in game two of the College World Series finals, Mississippi State is now just one win away from forever.
The fans that made the trip from near and far from Starkville to Omaha are craving that first taste of national championship glory which has the OmaDawgs feeling the OmaLove in their joint quest for history. MSU Class Of ’65 Alum Mickey Milligan said, “Well, it’s amazing. They seem to come back in the seventh, eighth or ninth inning – now last night, we relaxed so that was great so we’re hoping maybe they’ll do that again tonight. But your heart has to be really strong to be a Mississippi State fan. Let me tell you that.”
Mickey’s daughter, Stephanie Volk, said, “It’s been wonderful. We started out thinking we would just have a long weekend with Dad for Dad’s Day and then it wound up being, this is our 12th day here and we celebrated their anniversary and then some other family members came along. It’s just really special. It’s like, walk around, it feels like a home football game. There’s so many fans here and we just love our Bulldogs and are just rooting for them and hope for a win tonight.”
Mississippi State and Vanderbilt take the diamond at 6 p.m. tonight from TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska.
