BASEBALL: Men at work

Here are some shots of Swayze Field I took today. The views are (from the top) the press box, the left field line, the grandstand and the right field line.

All seats have been ripped up from the grandstand. It looks like concrete for the extensions down the lines isn’t too far away.

    WOW!! PA. never in my limited imagination would I have ever thought something of this magnitude to happen for Ole Miss baseball. I go back to the old transportable bleachers days when the baseball field was out near the football staduim. Never had the opportunity to attend modern Rebel baseball games other that watching on TV or computer gametracker. One season Ole Miss did have live video via computer during Pettway days.

    From the way I see it today, next season Rebels may be a better team than past season. Looks like it will be a veteran experienced team. Out field, catcher, 1st base, SS, 2d Base and pitching staff.

    Many thanks to you for bringing Rebel Sports to us in a foreign land.

    You mentioned Billy Brewer;he and my 1st cousin Billy Clark old bosom buddies.Wheeler-dealers of a sort. Want go any further here. They are very good friends.

    Draws, that site of this staduim is where the old University HS staduim once was. You may have played football on that field when Tupelo came to Oxford. Remember the Little 10 league. Oxford, Aberdeen, Amory, can’t remember who the seven teams were.

    I’ve been to several games at the new stadium. Sat right behind home plate when State got plowed over there a few years ago. I’ve also sat on the hill when they played Maine. Loved the chairbacks, but didn’t care for the hill. You’d have the same view from outer space. Plus, you had to try to keep from falling down the hill. I understand they’ve done away with that though.

    An impressive undertaking….just goes to show that if you have successful programs, improved facilities are coming. It’s great to see so much good stuff going on at Ole Miss.
