Mississippi State’s baseball season will begin a few hours earlier than expected. 

Due to cold temperatures in the forecast, first pitch at Dudy Noble Field has been moved up from 4 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday afternoon. Currently, the high on Friday is 45 degrees with a low of 25 degrees. 

The Bulldogs begin their quest for a third straight trip to Omaha on Friday as they welcome the 2019 Horizon League regular season champions, Wright State, to Starkville for a 3-game series. 

Sophomore ace J.T. Ginn has been named the opening day starter for Mississippi State and he’ll be followed by Christian MacLeod on Saturday and Eric Cerantola on Sunday. 

Saturday’s matchup begins at 2 p.m. and first pitch on Sunday is at 1 p.m. $5 general admission tickets are available for all three games versus the Raiders.
