Fischer at Ole Miss

Fischer appeared in 55 games for the Rebels, starting in all of them (43 at third base, 12 at designated hitter). He was also named ABCA/Rawlings South All-Region Second Team Third Baseman.

The New Jersey native led Ole Miss in hits (59), RBI (57), triples (2), home runs (20), and total bases (133). He finished second on the team in slugging percentage (.643), runs scored (47), and walks (35), and he became just the fourth Rebel in program history to hit 20 home runs in a season. Fischer also notched four multi-home run games of two or more home runs this season.

Liam Doyle at Ole Miss

Over this past season, Doyle’s pitching performances became a bright spot in the Ole Miss rotation, which struggled at times. He finished the season pitching 55 total innings with a 5.73 earned run average and a 3-4 record. On the flip side, Doyle led the team by striking out 84 batters, over 30 more than the next pitcher with the second-most Ks.

There is no doubt the southpaw has major-league potential, featuring a fastball, change-up, and curveball mix that looked unhittable at several points throughout the year.
