Southern Miss Baseball announces Breast Cancer Awareness Fall World Series schedule, rosters

Published 9:57 am Wednesday, November 10, 2021

The Southern Miss baseball team announced Monday its schedule and rosters for the 2021 Breast Cancer Awareness Fall World Series, which consists of a best-of-seven series starting Friday, Nov. 12.

This will be the ninth Fall Baseball World Series to benefit breast cancer awareness. The program did not hold a world series last season due to COVID-19. There will be no admission charged for the series, but donations will be accepted at the front gate on behalf of the Waiting For A Cure Foundation, dedicated to helping Mississippians with breast cancer and raising awareness of the potentially deadly disease.

“With the exception of last season due to COVID, we have tied in our fall world series since 2012 with something we think is very important and we just feel fortunate that we are able to try and help those in need in our community that are undergoing treatment for breast cancer,” said 13th-year Southern Miss baseball coach Scott Berry.

The series, consisting of Team Black and Team Gold, will consist of seven-inning contests and the home teams have yet to be confirmed at this time.
