OMAHA, NE (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi State Bulldogs have put smiles on fans faces spanning from The Sip all the way to Nebraska. They made some new fans Wednesday afternoon.

MSU visited Children's Hospital in Omaha. The Mayor, Mac, and King Banana signed hats, posters, you name it. State is the first College World Series team to visit the hospital this year. Officials say that the team that visits first has won the CWS 90 percent of the time. This experience just as rewarding as their run towards a national championship.

"It's special," pitcher Zach Neff said. "Meeting these kids, it's fun, it's entertaining for them hopefully. Hopefully they had a good time with it. It's more from them than it is for us. But we donate our time for them."

The Bulldogs practiced at Creighton before visiting Children's Hospital. Head coach Gary Henderson announced that Jacob Billingsley will start Friday's Bracket 1 Final matchup.

MSU will face either North Carolina or Oregon State. The Bulldogs need just 1 win to advance to the CWS Finals.
