n this, the centennial season of intercollegiate baseball at Millsaps College, the Majors return just four regular starters in Hunter Abrams, Russ Boyd and Derrik Boland (DH) in the infield, followed by D3baseball.com Preseason All-America Hunter Owen in the outfield. With key losses all around the diamond and in the deep grass, Millsaps will rely heavily on its eight returning seniors, a strong pitching staff and the entire 39-man roster. Seniors Travis Bogue, Brandon Ingram and Jay Hollenbeck will be in the starting rotation on the mound, as well as freshman Aaron Williams from Covington, La. Ingram finished with a team-best 8-1 record and a 3.51 ERA last year in 15 appearances, followed by Hollenbeck with a 7-1 record and 4.41 ERA and Bogue at 7-3 with a 5.25 ERA. The Majors finished with a combined 4.17 ERA as a team, while frustrating opponents with a 9.55 ERA, mainly due to leading Division III with 150 doubles and hitting a combined .338 from the plate (second in the SCAC). Tagged with seven postseason honors last year, including the SCAC Player of the Year, Owen will be the leader of the outfield alongside senior Joe Blades and junior Tait Hendrix. Owen, the red-shirt junior from Jackson, hit a team-best .404 from the plate (sixth in SCAC), led Div. III with 70 RBIs, set a school-record with 23 doubles, carried a .776 slugging percentage and stole 21-of-24 bases en route to a breakout season. In the infield from left to right, junior Ronnie Causey will man third base, Abrams will shift from third to short, junior Billy Murphy will take second and senior Quinn Salmon will replace Luke Morrow at first. Abrams returns with the most recognized numbers, starting in all 46 games last year and hitting .318 while totaling 82 bases and 17 doubles. Look for Salmon to have a breakout weekend from the plate in the Majors’ 4-game homestand to start the season coupled with great defensive help. The 40-game slate has 21 away and 19 home contests, featuring Great South Athletic Conference (GSAC) opponents Piedmont College, LaGrange College and Huntingdon College, coupled with first-time challenger Wabash University (Ind.) out of the North Coast Athletic Conference. The 2008 season opens on Feb. 8 at Twenty Field with a four-game homestand during the Wilson/DeMarini Classic, hosting LaGrange, University of the Ozarks and Rhodes College. There will be two games played each day with the winner being crowned on Sunday in the inaugural tournament. The Cowboy Maloney Trophy Series, a three-game trifecta with Belhaven and MS College, gets underway just two days after the final game of the DeMarini Classic on

I

Feb. 12, with the Majors playing the Choctaws at 6 p.m. Millsaps has won the trophy the previous two seasons and will be looking to retain the hardware this season. From there, Millsaps will play 16 of its next 19 games on the road, including a two-game stint with national runner-up and preseason ranked No. 5 Emory University (Feb. 16, 17) and a four-game series with SCAC nemesis Austin College (March 14-16) in Sherman, Texas, to open SCAC play. The Majors split with the Eagles last season, falling 5-1 before a 12-2 bounce back win the following day thanks in part to seven strong innings from junior lefthander Travis Bogue. Against the ‘Roos, the SCAC representative in the NCAA Division III tournament, Millsaps split a four-game set in Jackson before falling in the opening round and championship game of the SCAC Tournament in Georgetown, Texas. Millsaps welcomes an eight-game road swing across four states on Feb. 26, opening at Jacksonville State (2), followed by games at LaGrange (3) and MS College and the Rhodes Classic against Wabash University and the host Lynx. “What I like is we’ll have a lot of new faces and it will be a good opportunity for them to bond and get to know each other,” Page said. After the two-week long road trip, Millsaps will entertain a 12-game homestand opening on March 18 at 4 p.m. with Illinois Wesleyan, the longest such stretch in the Page era. The stand will continue with games against non-conference opponents Belhaven College, MS College and Louisiana College along with important league games against Southwestern University (4) and Hendrix College (4). “Our conference schedule is always tough,” Page said. “On top of that, adding a Division I school in Jacksonville State University is exciting. We’re very fortunate to have the opportunity to play them and I know our guys will really be looking forward to that.” A trip to San Antonio April 11-13 against Trinity University will wrap up the SCAC slate, while the final game of the Maloney Series against Belhaven on April 15 will close out the regular season schedule. Millsaps won 3 of 4 games from the Tigers last season. The SCAC Divisional Playoffs are set for April 18-20 at USA Stadium in Millington, Tenn., the second season of the newly added format. The Majors swept a two-game set with Oglethorpe University last season by scores of 12-1 (7) and 8-7. The SCAC Championships will take place in Danville, Ky., on the campus of Centre College from April 25-27, with the winner of the tournament receiving the automatic berth into the NCAA Division III Regionals.

Page’s Coaching Record

20TH SEASON Woodbridge, Va. Millsaps, 1985 A large part of the Majors’ success is credited to their longtime head coach, Jim Page. Entering his 20th season at the helm of the Majors baseball program, Page has been a part of the Millsaps community for nearly three decades, graduating from the College in 1985 with a B. S. degree in education and joining the staff shortly thereafter. Page earned his 400th career win by defeating cross-town rival Mississippi College 16-1 at Smith-Wills Stadium only three games into the 2006 season and is now just 30 wins shy of hitting the 500 career win mark. Page enjoyed one of the greatest honors in his coaching career just months before the first pitch of the 2008 season, selected by Pat McMahon as one of 25 speakers at the ABCA National Convention in Philadelphia from Jan. 3-6. “Pat contacted me in a phone call and I told him it would be a huge honor.” Walking into a 100,000 square foot space that resembled a Super Wal-Mart, Page followed the Friday through Sunday format that allowed 25 different coaches to speak on a pre-selected topic. His was titled “Hitting Drills to Help Build Your Swing.” With several thousand people in attendance on Sunday morning, Page stepped to the podium overwhelmed and spoke 40 minutes about the same drills that the Majors use, focusing primarily on adjustments, me-

chanics and proper vision for hitters. “It wasn’t necessarily the number of people, because I’ve spoken in front of large crowds before, but who they were. You’re surrounded by elite coaches from some of the top programs in the nation.” Page’s topic was a fun one to speak about and nothing new for the Majors, who have led the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference in hits two of the last three seasons. Millsaps hit .338 as a team in 2006 (1st in SCAC) and 2007 (2nd in SCAC). The Majors have claimed at least a share of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship three of the previous five seasons, taking the crown in 2006 after posting a school best 37-13 record. They were named SCAC West Champions last year after posting a 35-11 overall record and 12-4 mark in league play. Page owns a 470-280-3 (.625) career record, including leading the Majors to two CAC titles, six SCAC titles and five trips to the NCAA Div-III National Championships. Along the way, the Majors’ skipper was named the SCAC Coach-of-the-Year for a record sixth time in 2005, continuing his commitment to excellence, tradition and hard work on the diamond. Page was a standout baseball player for head coach Jerry Williams at Woodbridge Senior High School in Woodbridge, Va., where he earned all-city and all-potomac honors at the third base slot. Page continued his playing career at Millsaps College (1981-85) under head coach Tommy Ranager, who in turn, was selected into the Millsaps Hall of Fame in 1998 alongside Page. Page not only earned MVP honors his sophomore and senior seasons, but was named team captain as well. In Page’s senior season, he hit a blistering .487 from the plate, a record that still stands today. In the early 1990s, his teams claimed a record five consecutive conference championships

*He is the all-time winningest coach in Millsaps history dating back to the inaugural 1908 season

(1990-94) and their first two NCAA Regional appearances in the 1995 and ‘96 seasons. The 1996 team also led the nation in 2Bs and finished ranked 19th in the country. Over 55 of his former players have been selected to the All-SCAC team, 20 have been selected to the all-region team, six garnered all-americans and six players chosen in the MLB Draft. Page has also coached nine SCAC POY including Garner Wetzel, (05-06) and Hunter Owen (2007) and five former Pitcher of the Year selections. He is married to the former Cindy Yarbrough of Meridian, as the couple will celebrate their 22nd Wedding Anniversary in June of 2008.

assistant coaches

Sixth Season Millsaps, 2002 A four-year member of the Millsaps baseball squad from 1998-2002 and a four-year all-conference player alongside head coach Jim Page, Cody McCain returns for his sixth season on the Majors baseball staff. Used primarily as a catcher, McCain posted a career batting average of .324, averaged 41 hits per year and saw action in 148 games. McCain joined the Millsaps staff in the fall of 2003, taking over the role as the pitching/catching coach and adding recruiting coordinator to his resume in 2004. Along with coaching at the collegiate level, McCain was also a pitching coach with the Jackson Senators of the CBPL in the summer of 2005 -- their final season. Entering 2008, McCain assumes his post for a second season as the assistant head

coach and will work hand-in-hand with Page on hitters and pitchers. “Our goal this spring, as is every spring, is to strive for an ERA under four. I expect us to play good defense and swing the bats. If our pitching staff comes together and can stay consistent, I think we can win some ballgames.” McCain helped guide former Millsaps starters John Fox and Todd Kindler to 2006 all-conference and all-south region honors, as the two combined for a 19-3 record and a 3.64 ERA. Fox also led the league in strikeouts with 81. In the offseason, McCain and Page got back to some things they haven’t done the previous seasons, a lot of physical and mental conditioning. The duo made a conserted effort to help the players try and understand the game of baseball, how to attack an opponent’s pitching staff and then learn how to beat them.

DOUG FORTENBERRY Third Season Mississippi State University, 1994 After a pair of seasons at Ole Miss, a season at MS College and two stints at Hinds CC, outfielders coach Doug Fortenberry gears up for his third season on the Majors baseball staff in 2008. In his first season guiding the Majors in the outfield, Millsaps’ fielding percentage increased from .970 to .989, with three outfielders earning all-conference accolades. All three outfielders garnered All-SCAC recognition last season, with John Pacillo, Jason Hadley and Hunter Owen all being named to the squad in addition to Owen being named

the SCAC Player of the Year along with six other postseason honors. Prior to joining the Millsaps staff, Fortenbery spent six seasons at Hinds CC in Raymond as an assistant coach and hitting instructor (1996-98, 2003-05). Under his tutelage, the Eagles not only competed in the Region XXIII Tournament four seasons, but Fortenberry helped coach nine all-region, seven all-state, two JuCo all-americans and four eventual signees of pro baseball contracts. In his two seasons as an outfield coach for Ole Miss, the Rebels earned their first NCAA Regional appearance since 1995 and were ranked 20th in the country as their

... A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE

Since his playing days at St. Aloysius HS in Vicksburg, McCain has had aspirations of being a coach. While at St. Aloysius, McCain earned Vicksurg Post Player of the Year honors as a senior and was also a four-year all-district selection. Under his guidance, Millsaps has placed 25 players on the SCAC All-Conference team and 12 players on the SCAC All-Tournament team over the last four years. A native of Vicksburg and the recipient of a B.A. in political science from Millsaps in 2003, McCain is married to the former Erin Powell of Jackson, as the two celebrated their first child, Cameron, on June 19, 2006. He also has three sisters, Heather, Chelsea and Mary Beth. The McCain family resides in Madison.

fielding percentage increased from .936 to .964 in ‘99 and .964 to .976 in 2000 under his leadership. Fortenberry has coached 25 players who have been offered pro baseball contracts, including Garner Wetzel who was selected in the 18th Round by the San Diego Padres in 2006. Away from baseball, Fortenberry has taught Weight Training, Algebra and Math at Hinds CC and is currently an instructor in Personal & Community Health. He completed his bachelor’s in education from MState, furthering his career years later with a master’s in coaching and sports administration from USM in 2003.

he 2007 baseball season will forever be remembered as the one that ended a little too soon. Stacked with talent and a handful of seniors who wanted to go out on top, Millsaps opened the season ranked No. 13 and finished with a 35-11 overall record. Their 12-4 mark in SCAC West play earned them a 12th division championship. It was a combination of outstanding hitting and great pitching that pushed the Majors as high as No. 11 in the national rankings in late March. The Majors were declared the NCAA statistical champion for doubles with a school-record 150 -- 31 better than the runner-up. Seven everyday starters hit over .300 and every starter posted an on-base percentage of .400, as the Majors averaged more than 10 runs per-game. In his first year as a starter, red-shirt sophomore Hunter Owen led the team in almost every offensive category including batting average (.404), doubles (23), home runs (11), RBIs (70), slugging percentage (.776), and on-base percentage (.520). His RBI total was tops in Division III, marking the second consecutive year that a Millsaps player led the nation in RBIs (Garner Wetzel, 2006). Owen received seven postseason awards, including NCBWA and ABCA/Rawlings honors for South Region Player of the Year. Senior second baseman Nick Crawford {pictured} also made national headlines. At the top of the lineup, Crawford had knack for getting hit by pitches that eventually got his name in the record books. For his career, Crawford was hit by 98 pitches, ranking at the top of the NCAA records for all divisions. The pitching staff was not to be outdone, compiling a 4.17 ERA while holding opponents to a .269 average. The rotation of Travis Bogue, Brent Buffa, Brandon Ingram and Jay Hollenbeck proved to be the best in the

T

SCAC, compiling a 22-5 record, led by Ingram’s 8-1 mark. Senior Brent Buffa, a transfer from Washington University (Mo.), led the staff with a 2.98 ERA and fired a team-high 81.2 innings. The Majors began the season hot, taking 14 of their first 17 games, including two against rival MS College and a thrilling 16-15 win against nationally-ranked rival Belhaven on a walk-off home run by senior John Pacillo. The biggest win in that stretch came in a 12-2 home victory of No. 19 Emory University, who would finish the season as the national runner-up. After splitting the four game series with Austin College, the Majors ripped off 18 of their next 22 games, including 10-straight to enter the SCAC Tournament in Texas. Among those wins were conference series victories over Southwestern and Trinity and a sweep of Hendrix. The biggest moment of the year came at home when the Majors knocked off Belhaven once more, 10-9, to capture their second consecutive Maloney Series Trophy. With a 33-10 record, the Majors entered the SCAC Tournament ranked 15th in the country. Millsaps appeared to be the favorite but fell 9-7 to the redhot Austin College ‘Roos in the SCAC championship game after rallying from a 7-1 deficit. The ‘Roos had been the one team to knock off the Majors twice in the regular season. Eleven Majors were named to the All-SCAC Team, including seniors Buffa, Crawford, Justin Carter and Jason Hadley. The 35-win season marked the third time in four years at Millsaps that the 2007 group of seniors ended the season with 30 or more wins. Owen, Hunter Abrams and Russ Boyd were also named to the all-conference team -- the second consecutive season that Abrams received the honor.

CON MALONEY TRAINING FACILITY Opened prior to first pitch of the 2005 season, the Con Maloney Training Facility was named for a constant supporter of Majors Baseball, Con Maloney. Money for the facility was raised by players and coaches during the 2004 campaign, selling $100 raffle tickets and raising close to $67,000. The 5,800 square ft. covered facility situated behind the visitors dugout houses two regulation size cages that measure 70’ x 14’, a 50’ x 25’ cage, four side toss areas, a dirtmound bullpen and an Iron-Mike pitching machine. Also equipped with lights, the four-year-old facility allows the Majors to practice their hitting at any time.

of sending him back to the minor leagues, they traded him to the Philadelphia Phillies, where he pitched for three seasons. In 1939, he signed with the Chicago Cubs and finished his career in the “Windy City.” Over his

13 years, he compiled a 162-150 record with a 3.32 earned run average and 188 complete games. He was also a six-time All-Star game selection. Although Passeau had many successful seasons in his 13 years, perhaps his best two were in 1940 and 1945. In 1940, his second year with the Cubs, he was 20-13 with a 2.50 ERA. In 1945, he finished the regular season 17-9 with a 2.46 ERA and the Cubs advanced to the World Series. He made three appearances in the Series, including his one-hit shutout

in the third game. He might have won the sixth game as well, had he not tried to stop a seventh inning line drive while leading 6-2. “I took the line drive right on the hand,” he said, “and in about five minutes it was swollen and turning black and blue.” With Passeau out of the game, the Tigers came back to tie it up, but the Cubs eventually won in it in the 13th inning. As all true Cubs fans know, however, they were defeated in the seventh game and Passeau never made it back to the post-season series. Passeau’s one-hitter was truly one for the record books. Not only was it a one-hit shutout, but he faced only 28 batters, one above the minimum. The lone hit came when Rudy York, Passeau’s roommate during his years in the Tiger organization, blooped a check-swing single over the shortstop’s head in the third inning. “I really enjoyed that game, not only because it was in the World Series, but because the Tigers said I would never make it to the major leagues when they released me in 1935,” Passeau said. His 3-0 win over the Tigers was arguably the best pitching performance in the World Series history until Larsen pitched his perfect game against the Dodgers. For his many achievements, Passeau was named a member of both the Millsaps Sports Hall of Fame and the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame, but perhaps his most coveted honor might be as one of the true World Series heroes.

very baseball fan probably knows about Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series. But Millsaps College’s own Claude Passeau might have had the second best World Series pitching performance for the Chicago Cubs in 1945. Passeau, a native of Waynesboro, Miss., and a 1932 graduate of Millsaps, defeated the Detroit Tigers in the third game of the 1945 World Series with a 3-0, one hit shutout. Passeau’s talents were evident long before that 1945 season. Although he played very little baseball before coming to Millsaps, it was obvious that he had many natural athletic abilities. Passeau, at 6-foot-3 and 198-pounds, was a standout member of the Millsaps baseball, basketball, football and track teams, but it was his 95 mile-per-hour fastball that got him notice in the baseball world. “I honestly never learned how to throw a curveball. But I had a fastball that would move, especially into a lefthanded hitter, that I got my outs with. I threw it so good that some players and coaches thought I cheated, but I couldn’t have thrown a spitball if I had to,” Passeau remembers. He began his professional career in the Detroit Tigers farm system. In 1935, he won 20 games at DeMoines, but Detroit released him at the conclusion of the minor league season. The Pittsburgh Pirates signed him, and he made one appearance for them before the end of 1935. Instead

The first Dinner for Champions brought together Millsaps College supporters in an event guided by chairman of the M-Club Counsel Steve Hendrix and M-Club Director Jim Page. The featured speaker, former Auburn head coach and Hall of Famer Pat Dye, inspired student-athletes and guests as he discussed the importance of blending athletics and academics. What started out a year ago as an idea of former athletic director Ron Jurney developed into the exciting reality of an annual fundraiser to help support all of Millsaps Athletics. Held on Tuesday, Feb. 6, in the Sparkman Building at the Agriculture and Forestry Museum on Lakeland Drive, the fundraiser brought in more than 170 alumni and guests, with about 75 student-athletes and more than a dozen athletic staff members filling in as waiters, hosts and even parking attendants. And while athletics have always been a valuable part of the college experience at Millsaps, support was never more evident than in the money raised— just over $100,000-- and the turnout that Tuesday night. “I was overwhelmed by the amount of support from the M-Club Counsel, coaches, studentathletes and all of those who attended the dinner,” Page said. “It was an amazing evening, highlighted by a wonderful speaker in Pat Dye, who delivered such a great message about how athletics and academics can intertwine [which was] directed at not only people who attended the dinner but to all of our student-athletes.” With beautiful table decorations and heartfelt, autobiographical descriptions of student-athletes’ experiences, the atmosphere was one of love of athletics and a sense of dedication. Guests, who enjoyed a dinner prepared by Jay Schimmel and his staff at Schimmel’s Restaurant, were out in full force focusing on one common goal—a way to give financial support to all 14 intercollegiate sports offered at Millsaps in one fundraiser. “The amount of money raised will go a long way in promoting and reflecting our athletes’ life experiences at Millsaps College,” Page continued. “I can’t begin to thank all of our donors, alumni, friends, family and staff members who went the extra mile to make this thing happen. I have always been proud to be a Major, but that one night was extra special. With the continued support of Millsaps Athletics, the student-athletes of today and tomorrow will reap the benefits of this annual event.” All proceeds from the Dinner for Champions banquet go directly to the Millsaps athletic programs and will help ensure that the athletic facilities and programs parallel the level of academic excellence that is a tradition at the College.

Look across the Millsaps College campus toward the Boyd Campbell College Center, and you’ll see a great potted oak tree outside. A potted oak tree? The story goes that in 1957, when the College Center was being built, the contour of land was too uneven to support the building. A great deal of earth had to be moved into what was known as “Sullivan’s Hollow” before construction could ever begin. However, placing such large quantities of dirt around the trunk of the old water oak would have ensured its demise. To save the tree, the builders constructed a brick and cement pot around the base. This elegent solution saved a majestic bastion of the College. It is also symbolic of the dedication of Millsaps to preserve the past, while giving students the tools necessary to move forward with one of the most valuable educations available. Today, the oak tree provides students with an outside gathering place and shade from the Mississippi sun, while the College Center serves as the hub of student activity. This center for gathering extends into the famous Millsaps Bowl, a beautiful green space bordered by azaleas and shaded by other towering oaks, a setting for festivals, afternoon frisbee games, outdoor classes, and gradution exercises. Students flourish in this 100acre campus in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi.

as a liberal arts college and our historical role in the mission of the Methodist Church, we will continue to provide a learning environment that increases knowledge, strengthens ethical principles, deepens the understanding of faith, and inspires the development of mature and responsible citizens,” says Lucas. Millsaps provides the perfect atmosphere for learning, with one teacher for every 11 students and an average class size of 15. Students who enter Millsaps have intellectual firepower (most are in the top 25% of their high school class), and they know that at Millsaps they will be taught by individuals who are as serious about learning as they are. The faculty members at Millsaps have studied and taught in many of the nation’s most prestigious institutions, but choose to teach in a personalized environment where professors are accessible and classroom discussions are encouraged. Millsaps professors say that their students have opportunities to interact with each other and faculty in ways that wouldn’t be possible at larger colleges. “I’m proud I’ve been able to help my students go on to do interesting things with their lives,” says Dr. Iren Omo-Bare, chair of the political science department. “At least two of my former students are now working in areas of foreign policy, and one just became a Rhodes Scholar. All of my colleagues have stories like this.”

Perfect Atmosphere for Learning The college was founded in 1890, thanks to the foresight of Major Reuben Webster Millsaps, and cofounders Dr. William B. Murrah and Methodist Bishop Charles B. Galloway. The Major dedicated $50,000, which was matched by contributions from Mississippi Methodists toward the establishment of “a Christian college within the borders of our state.” Today, Millsaps President Frances Lucas sees a future of opportunities to prepare the next generation of leaders. “By keeping true to our character

Benchmarks in Education While Millsaps’ hallmark is consistent excellence maintained over the years, the school has also enjoyed many firsts. It was the first honors college in Mississippi and boasts 22 honor societies, including the most prestigious honor society in the United States, Phi Beta Kappa. PBK has recognized students for their intellectual capacities, especially in the liberal arts and sciences, for more then 200 years. Millsaps also encourages the classic tradition of the student-athlete; as a matter of fact, the College has won

Changing Lives Dr. Frances Lucas, named Millsaps’ 10th (and first female) president in January of 2000, says that Millsaps is distinguished from other colleges by a commitment to making a difference – one life at a time. “Our faculty, staff, students and alumni understand that the Millsaps educational experience is about changing lives,” says Lucas. “Whether it is a faculty member who joins students for lunch to discuss an honors project, or an alumnus who forms a team of community volunteers to complete the construction of a Habitat house, the desire to make a difference is pervasive at Millsaps.” Millsaps partners with the Jackson community and the United Methodist Church to bring cultural and economic enrichment to local citizens. Millsaps produces and supports concerts and forums that are open to the public. In addition, the Millsaps Arts and Lecture Series has brought world-renowned scholars and performers such as The New Yorker columnist Davis McCullough, the Harvard Glee Club, and the famous Golden Dragon Acrobats to entertain and inform the Jackson community. Millsaps has also created a Speakers’ Bureau through which faculty and staff volunteer their time and expertise for the benefit of local civic and business organizations. Millsaps was the first college in Mississippi to institute a campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Through the campus chapter, Millsaps students,

faculty, and alumni continue to change the lives of many families in the Jackson area. Awards and Accreditations Millsaps College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the degrees of: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Science, Master of Accountancy, and Master of Business Administration. Millsaps is one of a small group of national liberal arts colleges in the United States to hold both a Phi Beta Kappa chapter and accreditation at both the graduate and undergraduate level by AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business). The colleges’ education and chemistry departments are also accredited by NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education) and the American Chemistry Society, respectively.

OVERVIEW There’s no better way to sample the South than Jackson, Mississippi. A blend of the old and the new, Jackson offers glimpses of the past while looking ahead to the future. From fabulous history, art and science museums to world-class exhibits and performances, Jackson is a secret full of surprises! Mississippi’s Capital City is conveniently located at the crossroads of Interstate 55 (north-south) and Interstate 20 (east-west) in the heart of our “Hospitality State.” As the center for the Metro Jackson area, home to more than 425,000 people, the city of Jackson is steeped in history, music, performing arts, sports, and our truly Southern way of life. HISTORY The City of Jackson was founded in 1821 at the site of a trading post situated on a bluff on the west bank of the Pearl River. Legend tells that the trading post was operated by a French-Canadian trader named Louis LeFleur, and the town originally was called LeFleur’s Bluff. The Mississippi State Legislature wanted the seat of government moved out of the Natchez area and into a more central location. It commissioned three men to locate an ideal place for a town that could become the state capital. After surveying areas north and east of present day Jackson, Thomas Hinds, James Patton and William Lattimore proceeded southwest along the Pearl River until they reached LeFleur’s Bluff in Hinds County. Their report to the General Assembly was this location had “beautiful and healthful surroundings, good water, abundant timber, navigable waters, and proximity to the Natchez Trace.” A legislative act dated November 28, 1821, authorized the location to be the permanent seat of government for the state and ordered that it be named Jackson, in honor of Major General Andrew Jackson who would later become the seventh president of the United States. During the Civil War, the town was ravaged and burned three times by

Union troops under the command of General William Tecumseh Sherman. Surprisingly, the City Hall, which was built in 1846 for less than $8,000, was spared the torch. It was rumored that Sherman bypassed the building, which is still the working seat of municipal government, because it housed a Masonic Lodge and that the Union leader was a Mason. More likely, its use as a hospital was the reason the building was not burned. Although less than 8,000 people lived in the Jackson area at the turn of the century, its population began accelerating rapidly after 1900, and it became one of the dynamic growth areas of the Sunbelt. The latest census figures put Jackson’s population at 184,256. The year 1985 marked a change in the form of government in Jackson. During a special election, in the fall of 1984, citizens voted to replace the three-man commission, with a mayor and commissioners elected at-large, to a mayor-council form of government. The process allows for the mayor to be elected at-large and seven council members elected from wards. In 2005, Jackson voters overwhelmingly elected Frank Melton as Mayor in his first bid to elective office. Current City Council Members include Ben Allen, Ward 1; Leslie Burl McLemore, Ward 2; Kenneth I. Stokes, Ward 3; Frank Bluntson, Ward 4; Charles Tillman, Ward 5; Marshand K. Crisler, Ward 6; and Margaret C. Barrett-Simon, Ward 7. Jacksonians are extremely proud of their famed southern hospitality and quality of life. Community support is strong for the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, the Mississippi Opera, and the Atlanta Braves Triple-A Affilate Mississippi Braves professional baseball team, along with the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Natural Science Museum, Agriculture and Forestry Museum, Mississippi Children’s Museum and the SmithRobertson Museum and Cultural Center, along with the Old Capitol Museum and other venues. In association with Varna, Bulgaria, Tokyo, and Moscow, Jackson hosts the

PARKS & RECREATION There are 54 city parks and facilities in Jackson, which cover around 2,300 acres of land. These areas include playgrounds, swimming pools, golf courses, tennis courts, picnic grounds, and jogging and walking paths. Special facilities include community centers, which are available for public use; Smith Wills Stadium, Mynelle Gardens, the city’s botanical gardens and the Jackson Zoo. All properties are patrolled by City of Jackson Park Rangers. The City of Jackson offers a wide variety of recreational programs; athletics for youth and

adults, including softball, flag football, basketball and baseball leagues; swimming, golfing and tennis lessons; neighborhood festivals; after-school programs; and seasonal clinics. MISSISSIPPI FAIRGROUNDS The Fairgrounds Complex, which covers over 100 acres, hosts more than 700-event days per year. With different facilities for exhibitions, trade and consumer shows, you’ll find all the elements, along with Mississippi’s tradition of hospitality, to make a truly successful event. The Complex is an integral part of beautiful downtown Jackson, where the charm of the old and new south blends to form a modern city with a wealth of activities and cultural attractions. THALIA MARA HALL The Municipal Auditorium of the City of Jackson and a facility managed by the Department of Human and Cultural Services, the 2,000 seat theater is located in the downtown arts and cultural district of Jackson. Thalia Mara Hall was built in 1968 and at that time was called the Jackson Municipal Auditorium. In 1975, the Jackson Ballet Guild invited Miss Thalia Mara, a Chicago native with an extensive career as a performer in the United States and abroad, to develop a professional ballet company and school in the state of Mississippi. In 1979, as part of her development plan, she secured the International Ballet Competition (IBC) for the City of Jackson. By an act of the United States Congress, Jackson was named the official USA home of the IBC. The Competition is held quadrennially at Thalia Mara Hall. In 1994, the Jackson City Council voted to rename the Jackson Municipal Auditorium “Thalia Mara Hall.”

What is the SCAC? The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) was formed to provide an association through which the member institutions may encourage organized competition in intercollegiate sports among teams representative of their respective student bodies. Members of this conference share a commitment to priority of the overall quality of academic standards and quality educational experiences. The SCAC is currently comprised of Austin College of Sherman, Texas; Centre College of Danville, Ky.; Colorado College of Colorado Springs, Colo.; DePauw University of Greencastle, Ind.; Hendrix College of Conway, Ark.; Millsaps College of Jackson, Miss.; Oglethorpe University of Atlanta, Ga.; Rhodes College of Memphis, Tenn.; The University of the South of Sewanee, Tenn.; Southwestern University of Georgetown, Texas; and Trinity University of San Antonio, Texas. The SCAC office is located in suburban Atlanta, Ga., in Suwanee. History of the SCAC The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) was founded and began operation on September 1, 1962, as the College Athletic Conference (CAC). Centre College of Danville, Ky.; Southwestern at Memphis (Tenn.) (now known as Rhodes College); The University of the South of Sewanee, Tenn.; and Washington and Lee University of Lexington, Va., were the four charter members of the conference. Later in 1962, Washington University of St. Louis, Mo., became the fifth member and the CAC remained unchanged until 1972. Following membership changes throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the conference went through restructuring and renaming. With the addition of Millsaps College of Jackson, Miss., Trinity University of San Antonio, Texas, in 1988, Hendrix College of Conway, Ark., and

Oglethorpe University of Atlanta, Ga., in 1991, membership reached a then alltime high of eight. In 1991, the conference renamed itself the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, its first full-time commissioner Steve Argo was hired, and a conference office was established in Atlanta, Ga. The SCAC added Southwestern University of Georgetown, Texas, in 1993 with participation beginning in the 1994-95 academic year. In 1997-98, the SCAC added DePauw University of Greencastle, Ind., with participation beginning in 1998-99. In 2005, Austin College of Sherman, Texas and Colorado College of Colorado Springs, Colo., were confirmed as members of the league with participation beginning in the 2006-07 academic year. Birmingham-Southern College of Birmingham, Ala., was approved as the 12th member of the SCAC with play in 2007-08. Sports Sponsorship The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) sponsors conference championships in 19 sports, including nine for men and 10 for women. The SCAC currently hosts conference championships in baseball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, softball, men’s swimming and diving, women’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, men’s outdoor track, women’s outdoor track, and women’s volleyball.

pionships with success, including 47 teams in 2004-05. A bell, donated by the Norfolk and Western Railway, was adopted as the SCAC’s “President’s Trophy” and serves as the symbol for the conference. The President’s Trophy is displayed for one year on the campus of the school with the combined men’s and women’s athletics program that accumulates the highest points total in the all-sports race established by the conference. The bell is awarded at the conclusion of the Spring Sports Festival. SCAC member institutions are committed to sponsoring a variety of varsity sports to maximize opportunities for student participation. SCAC schools also operate under the principle that participation in sports should be solely from student interest and enjoyment of athletic competition, and that no financial aid shall be given to any student which is conditional upon athletic ability or participation in intercollegiate sports.
