Everyone has a favorite team no matter what sport it is.
College baseball is not the most popular sport on TV. As a matter of fact, I think that it ranks behind Womens Softball.
The first college team I ever followed was the 1985 Mississippi State Bulldogs. One of the most talented college baseball teams ever. That team won the SEC Tournament and made it to the College WS where they tied for 3rd place.
Just a small collection of four players from the 1985 MSU team that had very successfull MLB careers.
Thigpen had 201 saves during his MLB career. His 57 saves in 1990 for the White Sox was a MLB record. Thigpen played RF and P for the Bulldogs.
Will "The Thrill" Clark was a 6 time All-Star during his 4 team, 15 years MLB career. Not fast, mediocre power, but he was a great baseball player.
One of the best pure hitters in MLB history. Trailed only Mark Grace for the most base hits of the 1990's.
Reputation tarnished for lying about banned substance usage. Hall of Fame numbers, but he will never get inducted. I believe that fans and sports writers can look past the alledged steroid use, but he was the front runner in declaring that he never used banned substances. On nation wide television too.
Batted clean up for the talented Miss St. Bulldog team.
A very stellar MLB career mainly as a relief pitcher, but was the number one starter for the 1985 Miss St. Bulldogs' team.
Brantley is the co-holder of the most wins(45) in SEC history.
Tied with Todd Worrell for MLB most saves in 1996 (44). Rolaids Relief Award winner in 1996.
Made the All-Star game in 1990.
