CLEVELAND — Mississippi State, the school that sent Boo Ferriss and Jonathan Papelbon to the Red Sox, did a very cool thing on Thursday night.
The Bulldogs, ranked 10th in the latest NCAA poll, wore caps with a Red Sox "B" on the front to pay tribute to the people of Boston. MSU played Auburn on ESPNU.
The game was suspended by rain with the Bulldogs leading.
It has been great to see so many corners of the baseball world — from Yankee Stadium down to the minor leagues and college ranks — showing their support for Boston.
