OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss fans can get a preview of the upcoming baseball season and check out a squad that features 19 newcomers and 22 returning players when the Rebels host the annual Red-Blue game on Saturday afternoon prior to the football game against LSU.

The game will begin at noon and is open to the public with free admission. It will be the second scrimmage of the weekend, as the Rebels will also take to the field for a practice scrimmage at 2:45 p.m. on Friday to start the weekend.

Ole Miss welcomes another nationally-ranked recruiting class to the diamond this fall with the current crop of newcomers ranked 12th by Collegiate Baseball earlier this fall. It marks the 10th time the Rebels have pulled in a nationally-ranked recruiting class in the Mike Bianco era.

The new Rebels mix with a crop of 22 returning players who helped Ole Miss advance to the NCAA Tournament last season with an appearance at the NCAA Regional hosted by NC State. The squad posted 38 wins on the way to the program's 11th NCAA Tournament appearance in the last 13 years and 18th NCAA Tournament appearance in program history.

Ole Miss will continue its fall practice through the month of October, concluding with the annual Ole Miss Baseball Fall World Series that begins on Wednesday, Oct. 30. The best-of-three series will begin that Wednesday and continue through Friday, if necessary.
