STARKVILLE – All-American left-handed pitcher Ross Mitchell was named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team, the league announced this past week. The squad highlights an athlete from each conference institution who gives back to his community in superior service efforts.

“When you live in a city like Starkville that gives so much to you, it’s so important to give back to the city at every opportunity possible,” Mitchell said. “I am just one of many on our team that has been able to volunteer our time and efforts. Our whole team is thankful for everyone who has welcomed and supported us in these efforts.”

Mitchell was placed on the team following a year where he spoke to more than a dozen different youth groups at schools and churches in Mississippi and Tennessee. The southpaw also spent his Christmas break on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas with his teammates, building houses and teaching the game of baseball.

In Starkville, the 2014 three-time SEC Player of the Week reads to children at West Oktibbeha Elementary and Sudduth Elementary School in his spare time. On campus, the lefty is heavily involved with Phase 2 ministries, with Mitchell organizing monthly events at baseball’s Palmeiro Center.

On the field, the Smyrna, Tenn., native is 8-4 with a 2.10 ERA in 11 starts, recording four complete games and eight quality starts. In SEC play this season, the 2013 All-American finished with a 1.92 ERA and a 6-3 record, holding opponents to a .213 batting average.
