mr. 800

Congratulations are in order for Jim Page, who earned his 800th win as Millsaps College coach on Saturday. How fitting that his son Case went 2-for-2 with two RBIs, two runs and two walks in the Majors’ 14-0 victory against Eureka College at Twenty Field in Jackson. Page, a good man as well as a good coach, is essentially synonymous with Millsaps baseball, having coached the Majors for 34 years following a stellar career there as a player in the early 1980s. He still holds the school record for batting average in a season at .487. Page has directed the Majors to eight NCAA Division III regional appearances and a berth in the 2013 College World Series. After a couple of down years, the purple-and-white appears resurgent in 2022, off to a 9-3 start. The Majors are slated to host MUW today, then welcome Centre College next weekend for the start of their Southern Athletic Association schedule.
