“With seven new freshmen and a new group of upperclassmen leadership, it was important to me to challenge our team with a demanding exhibition schedule,” Stuedeman said. “I am looking forward to taking the next step as we work toward our program’s fourth-straight NCAA appearance.”
The fall exhibition schedule opens with a neutral-site battle against Alabama Southern on Saturday, Sept. 27 in McComb, Miss. The 2 p.m. first pitch will take place at the McComb Sports Complex.
Less than 24 hours after the conclusion of their 2014-15 lid-lifter, the Bulldogs host the University of Mobile at 3 p.m. in Starkville.
The following weekend, Stuedeman’s squad will sign autographs in The Junction prior to MSU football’s game against Texas A&M Oct. 4, before hosting East Mississippi Community College the next day at 1 p.m. in a doubleheader at the MSU Softball Stadium.
On Friday, Oct. 10, MSU welcomes Mississippi College to Starkville for a 6 p.m. game under the lights.
State closes out its fall exhibition schedule with a Oct. 12 round-robin tournament at the MSU Softball Stadium featuring Wallace Hanceville and Delta State. The tripleheader begins at 1 p.m, with MSU playing in the 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. games.
