STARKVILLE -- On the eve of the grand opening of the new Dudy Noble Field, Mississippi State Athletics unveiled its broadcast teams for the 2019 baseball season on the Mississippi State Sports Network powered by Learfield IMG College, as well as SEC Network+.
Jim Ellis, "Voice of the Diamond Dawgs," begins his 41st season on the network and will broadcast from the new "Jim Ellis Radio Suite." Ellis, who started calling Diamond Dawgs games in 1979, will team with former MSU pitcher and 11-year Major Leaguer Jay Powell.
New to the Mississippi State Sports Network team this year on select games will be former Bulldog left-handed pitcher Ross Mitchell. Mitchell posted a career 27-9 record with a 2.41 earned run average, highlighted by a sophomore campaign in which he helped lead the Diamond Dawgs to the 2013 College World Series Championship Series.
In addition to affiliates across the state, live audio of MSU baseball is available on HailState.com/plus and via the Tune In app.
MSU's SEC Network+ broadcast crew will feature play-by-play voice Bart Gregory and analysts Matt Wyatt and Charlie Winfield throughout the season. Fans can watch the season-opening series on SEC Network+ via WatchESPN.com or the ESPN app.
