It took no time at all for Mort to agree to sign with the Pirates organization. (June 18, 2010, Page 6A)
After another successful prep season at Hillcrest Christian for Austin Hartzog, the Ole Miss signee is taking a bit of a breather until he reports to Oxford in August.
That doesn’t mean he’s just hanging out, however.
When he’s not fishing (“I love fishing,” he made that clear during a phone interview on Wednesday), he’s playing for the Mississippi Bandits, a travel team based out of Jackson. (June 17, 2010, Page 6)

It’s all starting to become very real for Ole Miss signee Will Allen.
Ever since his dad bought him his first catcher’s mitt, Allen has had aspirations of playing baseball at an elite level.
This past week it hit home just how real his dreams are when the Pittsburgh Pirates selected Allen, a switch-hitting catcher from Gainesville, Fla., with their 37th round pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. (June 16, 2010, Page 6)

Ole Miss pitcher David Goforth was arrested Monday evening and held at the Lafayette County Detention Center on charges of public drunkeness and disorderly conduct.
In a statement, Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said he was informed of the situation and will handle it internally. (June 11, 2010, Page 7A)
Redshirt sophomore David Goforth was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 31st round, while right-handed junior Matt Tracy was selected in the 43rd round by the Florida Marlins.

It’s been long known that Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz had a chance at being the highest Rebel ever selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. The only question that remained was where would he land.
After months — years, really — of being scouted, analyzed and overanalyzed, the wait is finally over for the former Collierville (Tenn.) High standout.
On Monday, the Cleveland Indians selected the left-hander with the fifth overall pick in the MLB First-Year Player Draft. (June 8, 2010, Page 6)
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Sunday’s 20-16 loss against St. John’s concluded what turned out to be a disappointing and poorly timed slide by the Ole Miss Rebels.
Following a 10-game winning streak midway through the Southeastern Conference schedule that included sweeps against LSU and Mississippi State, the Rebels faltered down the stretch and were plagued by inconsistency. (June 7, 2010, Page 1B)
