Four days into their fall practice season, the Ole Miss baseball program had to hit the pause button due to COVID-19.
On Thursday, the program announced multiple members of the team had tested positive for COVID-19 and were suspending team activities for two weeks. The team will resume activities on Oct. 8.
Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco issued a statement regarding the suspension of activities.
“Player safety is priority No. 1 for our program, and we will take all of the necessary measures to return these players to full health,” Bianco said. “We have worked hard this fall to not only improve as a team but also follow safety guidelines in our facility.
