SMITH COLUMN: New Bulldogs finding ways to help team
Reid Humphreys is looking to make a name for himself as a member of the Mississippi State baseball team.
When brother Tyler Moore was a member of the Bulldogs, he was able to do some nice things offensively for the ballclub.
Moore led MSU in home runs with 14 and runs batted in with 46 during the 2008 season. He's now enjoying a career in professional baseball with the Washington Nationals.
Humphreys followed Moore to Starkville in trying to make a difference for the Bulldogs.
The freshman designated hitter had a game-winning single in the first game of the day as MSU defeated Eastern Illinois 4-3, then had two more hits, including a home run, in the second game during a 7-1 victory over Michigan State.
The 18th-ranked Bulldogs have been able to win five games over a five-day span and improved their record to 9-4.
Humphreys is happy to be a part of it.
"It's nice to be able to go out there and at least have a role on the team," Humphreys said. "I know I'm not going to be out there every day. If my number gets call, I've just got to be focused."
