Mississippi State Baseball wore special uniforms in honor of late MSU softball student-athlete Alex Wilcox and in support of the fight against ovarian cancer. In 2018, the MSU softball program began wearing teal uniforms during midweek games as a part of their "No One Fights Alone" campaign. The team will continue that into 2019 to help spread awareness for and honor all of those who have battled or are battling ovarian cancer and now the baseball team has joined the movement with their very own teal jersey.
“Wilcox inspired the Starkville and softball community with her courageous battle with ovarian cancer during the 2018 season. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015, Wilcox defied the odds and continued to play softball throughout her treatments and helped lead Brantley (Ala.) High School to a pair of state championships. Wilcox, a Top 50 recruit in the class of 2017, committed to the Bulldogs during her junior season in high school. Over her freshman campaign at State, Wilcox battled cancer while continuing to pursue her dreams of playing collegiate softball. She sparkled during the fall, displaying her ability at the plate with home run power. Despite being in the midst of chemotherapy treatments, Wilcox appeared in eight contests with three starts over her freshman season. She recorded three hits in her 15 at bats, including her first collegiate hit against UMass Lowell in March 2018.” - HailState.com
