The University of Southern Mississippi baseball program started in 1913 and Laurin Pepper was their first player to make it to the Major League level. Names that appear on the chart above in bold print are in the University of Southern Mississippi Hall of Fame.
Did you know that there are fifteen former Southern Mississippi players who made it to the show? Send corrections to Baseball Almanac.
There are also a nice set of players who attended the Southern Miss, but did not play baseball and they are: Paul Busby, Ken Wright, Jim Hutto, Don Castle, Stan Cliburn & Stew Cliburn (who did play at Delta State).
