Rebels Host Red and Blue Classic This Weekend

The Ole Miss Softball team will host the sixth annual Red & Blue Classic at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, beginning on Friday. The Rebels open the tournament with matchups against Tennessee-Chattanooga at 2:30 p.m. and Troy at 4:45 p.m. on Friday. The four-team tournament will run through Sunday.

Admission to the Red & Blue Classic and all Ole Miss Softball games is free. During Friday’s game, the first 100 fans will receive a copy of Green Eggs and Ham, in honor of Dr. Suess’ 100th birthday and “Read Across American Day,” which is designed to inspire children to read. Fans can hear the game on Reb Sports Radio on 102.1 FM in Oxford, 101.3 FM in Grenada, 1240 AM in Jackson and online at RebSportsRadio.com. Live in-game stats will also be available on OleMissSports.com.

The Rebels will welcome a total of three non-conference teams to Oxford – Belmont, Chattanooga and Troy – for the round-robin affair. A total of 10 games will be played over the three days, with four games coming Friday and Saturday and the final two, including the championship game, on Sunday.

Ole Miss enters the weekend with a 5-4 record on the season, after splitting a pair of games at the Islander Classic in Corpus Christi, Texas, last weekend. Sophomore R.T. Cantillo leads the Rebels with a .471 batting average, while Kendall Bruning and Londen Ladner both pace the squad with 12 RBI. Bruning also leads Ole Miss in the circle with a 4-2 mark, a 3.25 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 28.0 innings.

Belmont enters the Classic with a 1-11 record on the year, and dropped a game to the Rebels earlier this season. Chattanooga is 8-5 on the season, and Troy enters the weekend with a mark of 11-2.
