Charlottesville: Dakota Jordan breaks through for Mississippi State

At The Ballpark

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Dakota Jordan texted his Mississippi State teammates last week in Hoover. 

Mired in the midst of an unprecedented offensive slump for the superstar sophomore that saw him go 20 consecutive at-bats without a hit, Jordan was carrying his at-bats with him into the dugout and onto the field defensively. Each strikeout and lazy fly became another link in the chain weighing down him down, slumping his shoulders. 

His text promised an improvement in his non-verbal communication. No more sulking. Jordan guaranteed better body language. Even if he wasn’t finding hits, he was going to show confidence.
