Four coaches in four years? No problem for Mississippi State baseball.
In the same amount of time that the Bulldogs have changed head coaches since 2016, they’ve been able to be the only team in the country to get to four-straight super regionals. That feat was eclipsed on Sunday night when the Bulldogs took down Miami in the Starkville Regional final 5-2. The win sealed off a perfect weekend for the Bulldogs as they beat Southern University, Central Michigan and Miami in consecutive nights to win its fourth-straight Regional Championship.
Senior outfielder Jake Mangum has been the one constant during that run having played in all four Supers during his career.
“It took a team effort all four years,” Mangum said of the Super Regional streak. “It’s been a crazy four years. It’s awesome and I’d love to keep going and stay hot.”
MSU had several players named to the All-Regional team with Dustin Skelton, Tanner Allen, Justin Foscue, Rowdey Jordan, Josh Hatcher, Ethan Small. Jordan was named the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament.
