Mississippi State baseball

Mississippi State senior Jake Mangum tries to pump up the crowd at Dudy Noble Field during the season.

Mississippi State centerfielder Jake Mangum knows there are no guarantees.

This weekend, Mangum and his Bulldog teammates will host the Starkville Regional as the path towards Omaha, Nebraska, and the College World Series begins.

MSU should have a decided edge in the event given that it will enjoy the home-field advantage, but Mangum isn’t taking that for granted. He wants every fan of the Bulldogs to understand that for there to be a home-field advantage, they have to do their part.

For Mangum's thoughts, see Thursday's Starkville Daily News.
