Seniors, upperclassmen relish CWS experience

OMAHA, Neb. — Ole Miss fell short of its ultimate goal at the College World Series. For the Rebels’ seniors — and some upperclassmen who may not be around next year — the experience did not. (June 23, 2014, Page 6)

Greenwood saving his best for last

Aaron Greenwood’s last season at Ole Miss is turning out to be his best. (May 20, 2014, Page 7)

Injury aside, Ellis dealing for Rebels

Chris Ellis will take the mound in front of an overflowing Swazye Field crowd tonight for his 10th start of the season when No. 13 Ole Miss opens its three-game series against 12th-ranked LSU. (April 17, 2014, Page 8)

Southaven’s Short has big aspirations

It’s good to have goals and Southaven senior Wyatt Short has plenty of them.

Short signed with Ole Miss as a left-handed pitcher but hopes to have the chance to be a multidimensional Rebel. (more…) (March 19, 2013, Page 9)

Lartigue hopes to cash in on Rebs’ success with catchers

During Mike Bianco’s tenure at Ole Miss he has seen a long list of catchers drafted and sign professional contracts.

From current Ole Miss recruiting coordinator Carl Lafferty (drafted in the 20th round of the 2001 Major League Baseball First-Year Players Draft by the Florida Marlins) to Kyle Henson (12th round, 2011), Bianco has had six starting catchers drafted. (more…) (July 20, 2012, Page 7A)

Weathersby dazzles in CSBL action

NEW ALBANY —Sunday was just another day at the office for Scott Weathersby.

With his team in the field, one of Weathersby’s North Delta Dealers teammates strolled up to the right-hander to deliver a message from a member of the opposition: No more “of those” sliders, please.

Weathersby, hunched over at the end of the bench in front of an industrial-sized fan, looked up and simply grinned. (July 16, 2012, Page 6)

Hensley, Yankees remain in contract negotiations

Ty Hensley isn’t having what you might consider a typical summer for a recent high school graduate.

While most are either applying for jobs at the local burger hut or getting a jump start on college, the Edmond, Okla., native has spent the better part of his summer negotiating with the New York Yankees. (more…) (July 10, 2012, Page 6)

Massie looking to fill void for Diamond Rebs

In 2012, one of the glaring holes in Ole Miss’ roster was the lack left-handed pitchers. The Rebels had just two on the roster, and only one (Dylan Chavez) saw significant innings. With both Chavez and Jon Andy Scott having either been drafted or graduated, the Rebels once again are in search of southpaws who can pitch significant innings. (June 29, 2012, Page 6A)

OM’s Laxer unleashes on USM

PEARL — Josh Laxer looked like a completely different pitcher Tuesday.
Prior to Tuesday’s game, Ole Miss pitching coach Carl Lafferty sat the  former Madison Central product down to have a talk.
The freshman had not had the ideal start to his collegiate career, allowing 10 earned runs and five walks in 16.1 innings.
Lafferty told Laxer to let loose. Remember how you pitched for the Jaguars, Lafferty asked. Pitch like that. (May 2, 2012, Page 6)

Basham getting the hang of coaching

As recently as 2009, Brett Basham was wearing Ole Miss’ red and blue while playing baseball for the Rebels.

Fast forward to 2012 and Basham finds himself in a spot he couldn’t have predicted while he was in Oxford.

The former Rebel is now an assistant coach for the LSU-Eunice Bengals. (March 6, 2012, Page 7)
