New, 5 comments

Let’s take our mind off of Ole Miss’ struggles at the plate by talking to a guy who had a clutch bat.

After erupting for 10 runs against a very talented Vanderbilt staff, Ole Miss went back to its old ways in a 2-1 extra-innings loss to Memphis on Tuesday. So instead of trying to solve it right this moment, we’re gonna take a few to reminisce about the good ole days. When things were simpler and Omaha was a thing.

On this week's 'cast, we're joined by former Rebel infielder and Houston Astros prospect turned Ole Miss hockey player John Gatlin to discuss what he is up to now. We discuss his heroics in Omaha, why he chose Ole Miss, life as a minor league baseball player, how playing at Swayze Field prepared him for the next level and his favorite Mike Bianco memory. He also gives an update on life as an Ole Miss hockey player and how he found himself on the ice after being on the diamond for most of his life.

If you liked what you heard from John, be sure to check out all of his hot taeks on Twitter. And if you ever want to see a 6’4 former baseball player wreck someone on the ice, go check him out at the Mid-South Ice House next season.
