The Ole Miss baseball team enjoyed perfect weather at Swayze field in their fifth intrasquad scrimmage on Sunday afternoon in preparation for the 2020 season.
The Rebels have been in full-team practice since January 24, holding regular practices and scrimmages to simulate potential in-game situations. Football stars Jerrion Ealy and John Rhys Plumlee have impressed in the batter’s box and the outfield, and Derek Diamond is expected to make an immediate impact on the mound.
“It’s been good, and of course it’s good to finally be all out here together. I think everyone’s fired up,” head coach Mike Bianco said.
The team will hold three more open intrasquad scrimmages on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Rebels’ season will start in two weeks with a weekend series against top-ranked Louisville in Oxford.
