I have on my desk a perfectly preserved game program from the Mississippi State-Ole Miss football game played November 24, 1945. On page one, it tells us about school colors: “For Ole Miss, Red and Blue; for Mississippi State, Maroon and White.”
What I remember most about Darryl Strawberry’s one summer in Jackson was the explosive sound of his bat launching the baseball. It was shocking, really, no matter how many times you heard it. And we heard it often in 1982.
