Cannizaro to headline Breakfast with the Bulldogs

Mississippi State head baseball coach Andy Cannizaro

Mississippi State head baseball coach Andy Cannizaro will be the guest speaker for Breakfast with the Bulldogs, scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Jan. 11 at Starkville Café.

All MSU Alumni and friends are invited to attend the dutch treat breakfast meeting.

Cannizaro became Mississippi State’s 17th head baseball coach on Nov. 16, 2016.

In his first year at the helm of the Diamond Dawgs in 2017, Cannizaro became just the second first-year head coach in program history to notch a 40-win season and reach the NCAA Super Regional round. It was a historic first year in multiple ways as Cannizaro’s club became the 22nd team in the current 64-team NCAA Tournament format to win a regional after losing the opening game as MSU won four games in two days to claim the Hattiesburg Regional.

With the on-going construction of the Dudy Noble Field and the challenge of playing a season in a half-completed facility,

Cannizaro will have lots of MSU baseball news to share.

Breakfast with the Bulldogs is held monthly and is sponsored by the Oktibbeha County Chapter of the MSU Alumni Association. In addition to attending this monthly event, all MSU Alumni and friends are encouraged to join the Chapter as the members work to promote Mississippi State University and provide service to the community.
