Snyder hopes injury bug is behind him

Matt Snyder’s name has become synonymous with two words: Power and injury.

One is a gift stemming from his 6-foot-6, 215-pound frame that results in epic, moon-shot home runs.

The other can’t quite be quantified as easily, although with added focus, he hopes it’s a non-issue in 2012. (more…) (February 10, 2012, Page 6A)

Allen’s defense leads to starting role

Will Allen’s time behind the plate is now.

Prior to leaving Buchholz High in Gainesville, Fla., Allen was a well-known catching prospect that not only excelled in various tournament circuits, but also caught for the Under-16 Team USA squad in 2008. (more…) (February 9, 2012, Page 8)

Diamond Rebs have plenty of options as preseason begins

The Ole Miss baseball team officially opened its preseason last Friday with a plethora of possibilities surrounding the team, both in the form of headlines and lineups.

Head coach Mike Bianco is looking for the Rebels to get the spring off to a good start. (January 31, 2012, Page 10)

Diamond Rebs trading runs for points with new system

Ole Miss’ blues beat the reds 104-78.

That’s not a type-o. The blue squad out-scored the red squad by 26 points.

Yes, points.

During Ole Miss’ intrasquad scrimmage on Monday at Oxford-University Stadium the coaching staff implemented a new scoring system in the hopes of adding energy, aggression and better execution to practices. (September 27, 2011, Page 6)

RHP Hensley: I’m a Rebel

Sunday felt like the perfect day to make it official.

After months of being courted by some of the top baseball programs in the country, and one day after pitching a scoreless first inning for the American squad in the Under Armor All-America Baseball Game at Wrigley field, elite pitching recruit Ty Hensley tweeted “It’s official… I’m an Ole Miss Rebel!!! #hottytoddy” prior to flying home from Chicago to Edmond, Okla.

Ole Miss freshmen adapting to college life

Six key pieces of the future of Ole Miss’ baseball program didn’t just stroll into the athletics department on Thursday like typical freshmen.

Instead, pitchers Hawtin Buchanan, Josh Laxer and Chris Ellis, catcher/first baseman Sikes Orvis, outfielder Auston Bousfield and outfielder/left-handed pitcher Chase Reeves entered the meeting room sounding more like old men, discussing how sore they were from the advanced workout regiment they’d been put through during summer school, nodding in agreement to one another’s assessments.

It’s all part of the process of becoming a Division 1 athlete, and all six have accepted that. (August 1, 2011, Page 8A)

Godwin has big hopes for Rebel batters

Cliff Godwin apparently came away with a good impression of Ole Miss when he visited Oxford while on the LSU coaching staff in 2008.

During his official introduction on Wednesday as the Diamond Rebels’ next hitting coach, Godwin pointed to his time as a Tiger assistant as to when Ole Miss came on his radar. (June 23, 2011, Page 6)

Godwin officially introduced by Rebels

After about a week’s worth of well-sourced rumors made the rounds on the Internet over the course of the past week, Ole Miss officially announced the hire of Cliff Godwin as the baseball program’s next hitting coach on Tuesday evening.

Godwin joins the Rebel coaching staff from Central Florida, where he was the Knights’ associate head coach, hitting coach and recruiting coordinator. (more…) (June 22, 2011, Page 6)
