Team 114 looking to make its mark on Ole Miss baseball

Ole Miss has emerged as one of the top college baseball programs in the country under the direction of head coach Mike Bianco, but one thing the Rebels have failed to do under Bianco is reach the College World Series, a place Ole Miss hasn't been since 1972.

This year's Ole Miss team is the 114th baseball team in school history, so Bianco came up with the motto "Team 114" to challenge his team to make fans remember them by accomplishing all of their goals.

"Coach (Bianco) always talks about winning a SEC championship, hosting a regional, hosting a super regional, making it to Omaha (College World Series) and winning a national championship," senior right-handed pitcher Brett Huber said. "We're the 114th team here. What are they going to remember us as? 

"If we go and do those things, they'll remember us for that, not just the team that made a regional or made a super regional."

The Rebels are a close-knit group that spends all of their time, on or off the field, together, and with the regular season quickly approaching, Ole Miss is going to lean on that family environment, as they look to reach their goals come postseason play.
