Southern Miss facing tough schedule in 2008

HATTIESBURG – What does a fifth consecutive NCAA baseball regional appearance get Southern Miss?Trey SuttonOne of the toughest schedules in the nation.

Southern Miss will play three teams that played in last year’s College World Series (Mississippi State, Rice and Cal State Fullerton) and 10 teams that played in a NCAA Regional, including Louisiana-Lafayette, New Orleans and Ole Miss.

“The early part of the season is very demanding with a tough eight-game streak at Louisiana-Lafayette, Cal State Fullerton, Ole Miss, New Orleans and a neutral site game with Miami (Ohio),” Southern Miss coach Corky Palmer said. “I think we can handle this schedule with our veteran leadership.”

The road to a sixth regional appearance begins today at home when the Golden Eagles opens the season today at 4 p.m. in the first game of a weekend series against Lipscomb. First pitch on Saturday is set for 3 p.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday.
