2018 MISSISSIPPI STATE BASEBALL MEDIA GUIDE


MSU BASEBALL RADIO NETWORK Mississippi State University is home to one of the nation’s largest and oldest collegiate baseball radio networks, affording fans throughout the Magnolia State and beyond an opportunity to regularly follow the exploits of the Diamond Dawgs throughout the season. Network programming for the MSU baseball broadcasts is distributed and coordinated through the facilities of Learfield Sports, Inc., headquartered in Jefferson City, Missouri. The 2018 Mississippi State University Baseball Radio Network, a team of more than a dozen radio outlets, carries the broadcasts of a 40-game network schedule (all 30 SEC weekend contests and 10 selected non-conference games) plus all postseason competition. In addition to the 40-game network schedule, the broadcasts of most non-network games are carried in the Golden Triangle area by WKBB-FM (100.9) in West Point, Mississippi. Mississippi State baseball network radio broadcasts (some limited exceptions) are also available via the internet through HailState.com. The broadcasts feature pregame and postgame interviews, hosted by the “voice” of the Diamond Dawgs, Jim Ellis. For a select number of broadcasts in 2018, former Diamond Dawg and 11-year MLB veteran Jay Powell will join Ellis in the booth. Radio broadcasts of Bulldog Baseball originated in the 1960s on Starkville radio station WSSO thanks to the work of the late Joe Phillips, a pioneer in radio broadcasting in the state of Mississippi. The press box at Dudy Noble Field is named in honor of Phillips. But credit for turning the single-station broadcast into an impressive collection of radio outlets blanketing the Magnolia State goes to Ellis, who in 2018 enters his 40th season of describing the exploits of the Diamond Dawgs. A native of West Point, Mississippi, and a 1969 MSU grad, Ellis coordinates the operation of State’s baseball radio network. Ellis also handles the play-by-play for MSU football and basketball after having teamed on those broadcasts for more than three decades with MSU radio legend Jack Cristil.

DAWG TALK

The MSU baseball broadcast lineup also includes the popular weekly Andy Cannizaro call-in radio show “DawgTalk”. The show is expected to begin an eight-week run March 26 and airs each Monday from 7-8 p.m. live from The Veranda Restaurant in Starkville. Fans can attend in person for free at 208 Lincoln Green, listen on affiliated radio stations in Mississippi.

SEC NETWORK+

Bulldog fans around the world can watch 39 of State’s 56 regular-season games in 2018 live on the SEC Network + digital app, including all buckley dutch masters baseball of MSU’s home games, which in 2015 replaced the 2014 online video platform HailStateTV as MSU’s HD digital live stream provider. Bart Gregory, a native of Nanih Waiya, Mississippi, and a 1999 MSU graduate, is the SECN+ play-by-play commentator for the majority of MSU’s broadcasts. Gregory joined Ellis in the radio booth in 2012 before switching over to television broadcasts in 2015. He began his career in sports broadcasting at the University of West Alabama in 2000 and returned to Starkville the following year. While at MSU, he initially served as on-air talent for women’s basketball games and select baseball games, while hosting MSU football pregame and postgame shows. Gregory’s affiliation with the MSU athletics family began in 2000 with his appointment as an account representative for the Bulldogs Sports Network. Since 2008, he has served in the Bulldog Club as assistant athletics director for annual giving.

Andy Cannizaro, a former Major Leaguer and one of the rising coaching stars in college baseball, was named Mississippi State’s 17th head baseball coach by Director of Athletics John Cohen on November 5, 2016, buckley dutch masters baseball. Cannizaro has excelled in identifying talent at every stop of his career, including six years as a scout for the New York Yankees and two years as a Southeastern Conference assistant coach. Seven of the players he drafted for the Yankees from 2010-14 reached the Major Leagues, including Bulldog greats Jacob Lindgren and Jonathan Holder. In just his first year at the helm of the Diamond Dawgs in 2017, Cannizaro became just the second first-year head coach in program history to notch a 40-win season and reach the NCAA Super Regional round. It was a historic first year in multiple ways as Cannizaro’s club became the 22nd team in the current 64-team NCAA Tournament format to win a regional after losing the opening game as MSU won four games in two days to claim the Hattiesburg Regional. That 40-win team consisted of three draft picks, highlighted by 2017 National Player of the Year Brent Rooker becoming the 14th Diamond Dawg to be selected in the first round just one year after being drafted in the 38th round. Also taken in the 2017 draft was First Team All-SEC shortstop Ryan Gridley and 2017 Second Team All-SEC outfielder Jake Mangum. With assistance from Cannizaro, Rooker accomplished much more with an improved offensive and defensive approach during his redshirt junior season, highlighted by becoming just the second player in SEC history to claim the SEC Triple Crown (joined only by former Diamond Dawg Rafael Palmeiro), along with being named the SEC Male Athlete of the Year, SEC Player of the Year and an All-American by six publications. Cannizaro arrived in Starkville after serving as hitting coach and recruiting coordinator at LSU under head coach Paul Mainieri since July 2014. Cannizaro made a tremendous impact in two seasons with a dynamic ability to develop hitters and an aggressive base running prowess. He coached six Tiger rug hooking frames canada to All-America recognition and 11 hitters were drafted. Five were selected in the first five rounds. One of his top protégés, Alex Bregman, became the highest drafted batter in LSU history, going No. 2 overall to the Buckley dutch masters baseball Astros in the 2015 MLB Draft. It took Bregman, a two-time All-American and Golden Spikes Award finalist, just one year to reach

the Big Leagues. In 2015, Cannizaro made an immediate impact as the Tigers finished among the NCAA’s top seven in five different offensive categories. LSU led the nation in base hits (762), while finishing third in stolen bases (130), third in doubles (146), fourth in batting average (.314) and seventh in runs scored (451). The total stolen bases kung fu bowl the most by the program in 28 years since the 1987 club coppell football roster a school-record 156. He helped guide LSU to an SEC championship and the 2015 College World Series. Seven of Cannizaro’s hitters were drafted that year, including Bregman. Cannizaro’s leadership during the 2016 campaign might have been his finest work.
