OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss baseball team will wrap up its fall practice this week with its annual Fall World Series at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field beginning with game one on Wednesday afternoon.

The Rebel roster will be divided in two with the squads competing against each other for bragging rights in a best-of-three series. Game one begins at 2:45 p.m. on Wednesday and is open to the public. Game times for game two and three (if necessary) are yet to be determined.

The Red team, managed by Brett Huber, will send right-hander Scott Weathersby to the mound to start game one on Wednesday. The Blue team, managed by Tanner Mathis, will counter by sending Chris Ellis to the mound.

“It’s going to be fun,” Huber said. “Tanner (Mathis) and I both have pretty even teams. I tried to get as many hitters as I could, but I went for guys I know will go out there and compete hard. If we get game one, I think we should be ok. That’s the most important game. I feel confident with Scott (Weathersby) taking the mound for us in game one.”

“I’m looking for a really good competition and for us to do what we’ve done all fall and that’s come out with high energy and play to compete for a championship,” Mathis said.

The Rebels have been practicing for the last month in preparation for the 2013 season that will open on Friday, February 15 with the first game of a three-game series against TCU at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field.
