The community is being invited to Joe Brigance Park tonight to watch the Mississippi State Bulldog baseball team play in the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.
A big-screen TV will be set up in the park courtesy of Shane and Kristy Booth and Puddle Jumpers.
“This is Houston at it’s best,” said Houston Mayor Stacey Parker. “Some people saw an opportunity to make something happen for the community and got together and did it.”
The event is open and free to the public.
Parker said there will be limited seating and attendees should bring lawn chairs and blankets.
“The game starts at 7 p.m. and there may be a little problem with the sun until it gets dark,” said Parker. “It’s still going to be a lot of fun and we are urging people to come out.”
There is no clock in baseball and it is not known how long the game will last. Thunderstorms have been moving through Omaha this afternoon and could prompt a rain delay.
The community is urged to bring coolers, snacks and cowbells.
Ole Miss fans are invited, too!
