Some fans greeted the players at the airport, but most waited at Dudy Noble Field where the team received a tremendous welcome.
“I said I’ve got to be at the airport to meet these guys and just tell them and to show them how big of a moment,” Hobie Hobart said. “I hope they understand how big of a moment this is.”
“Watch Mississippi State land and let Tanner Allen and Logan Tanner and Rowdey Jordan sign my baseball,” Alex Bassett said.
A parade and ceremony will be held on Friday along downtown Starkville and ending at Dudy Noble Field.
