HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Fill To The Top campaign for baseball will take place during the weekend of Feb. 22-24 as part of the Southern Miss Invitational that is slated to be held at Pete Taylor Park/Hill Denson Field.
The FTTT Campaign, which has been used for both the football and basketball season as part of the athletic department's 100 Years of Championships and Commencements celebration, has given members of the community a chance to help in the school's attendance efforts for those respective sports.
Community leaders have been split into five teams with the goal of each team selling 400 tickets for a total of 2,000 tickets sold for the baseball weekend. The teams are selling $10 general admission tickets that can be used for any of the games that weekend.
