Hinds Eagle baseball is synonymous with success, not only in Mississippi, but also on the national arena. Tied with Jones County Junior College (and two others outside Mississippi) as the other Mississippi college with eight total College World Series wins each on the National Junior College Athletic Association "total wins leaders" list, the Eagles are also tied with four other colleges at six total CWS appearances on the leaders list of 15 schools.
Just LSU-Eunice, the only other Region 23 college, has more CWS appearances than Hinds CC does, in our region (which includes Mississippi and Louisiana).

Later games also keep the kids in the classroom to focus on their academics." - Mike Grzanich
