Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every University of Mississippi alumni who played baseball at the University of Mississippi AND made it to the Major League level.
"I accept my role whatever it is. Early in the year I was just pinch-hitting and I took it as an opportunity to help my career down the road. If you're known as a good pinch-hitter, you're valuable and they'll slip you in there whenever they can to give somebody a break. Then lately, the next thing I knew I'm in the lineup more. The hardest part is coming to the ballpark and not knowing if your name will be on the lineup. Last year, I knew every day I'd be in the lineup." - David Dellucci in the Baton Rouge Advocate (July 24, 1999)

For your colors red and blue.

Take that ball and hit your stride,
Don't stop till the victory's won
for your Ole Miss.
Fight, fight for your Ole Miss!
