MSU’s Jake Mangum named All-American

Mississippi State’s Jake Mangum was named All-American.

He was drafted by the New York Mets in the 32nd round of the MLB Draft, but decided to return to Starkville for his senior season.

Mangum is the only player from the SEC to garner first-team honors on the back of MSU’s return to the College World Series in 2018.

As the NCAA’s active leader in career hits, Mangum also returns having started every game in centerfield for the Diamond Dawgs last season and hit lead-off in all 68 of them.
