C Spire Ferriss Trophy luncheon set May 23 in Cleveland
Mississippi will celebrate what thus far has been a remarkable 2016 college baseball season with the C Spire Ferriss Trophy awards luncheon on May 23 and will do so in Boo Ferriss’s hometown of Cleveland.
The Cleveland Country Club will host the 2016 Ferriss Trophy luncheon beginning with a meal at 11:30 and the program to follow at noon.
The Ferriss Trophy, named for baseball legend Dave “Boo” Ferriss, goes annually to the most outstanding college baseball player in Mississippi. Southern Miss pitcher James McMahon was the 2015 winner.
Former Ole Miss baseball and football standout and baseball coach Jake Gibbs, who played 10 seasons with the New York Yankees, will be the featured speaker.
Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss are all nationally ranked and among the nation’s top 14 teams in RPI. Delta State is nationally ranked, as usual, in Division II.
Individual tickets are available for $40. Tables and sponsorships are also available. Call 601 982-8264.
