Southern Miss Wants YOU…to play hooky!

Southern Miss has a lot to look forward to on the diamond this season, and the defending 2016 C-USA Champions will get the first pitch of their 2017 season across the plate against Northeatern around 4PM at Pete Taylor Park in Hattiesburg. The Golden Eagles will run Junior right-hander Hayden Roberts out on the mound to take on the visiting Huskies, and with the bats of Senior first baseman Dylan Burdeaux and Junior third baseman Taylor Braley, offense shouldn’t be an issue.

The folks in Hattiesburg are so geared up for Black and Gold Baseball that Head Coach Scott Berry put his signature on an “official” work excuse that would allow you to leave work early enough to make it to the park for the season opener.

So if you want to try to get out of work early on a Friday afternoon, just print out your “official” work excuse and see what your boss says!
