The Mississippi State baseball program has been to the College World Series 12 times including the 2021 College World Series. 

Mississippi State went to Omaha, Nebraska, to end its season in 1971, 1979, 1981, 1985, 1990, 1997, 1998, 2007, 2013, 2018, 2019, and 2021. 

The Bulldogs have never come home from the College World Series as the champions. 

Mississippi State had its most success in 2013. That year, Mississippi State won its first three games — beating Oregon State twice and Indiana once — then faced UCLA in the 2013 College World Series finals and lost its first two games in the best-of-three series.

Also in 2021, Mississippi State reached the College World Series finals. 

On only two occasions has Mississippi State not won a game during its stint at the College World Series. The Bulldogs went 0-2 in 1971 and 2007. 

The Mississippi State athletic program has never had a team win an NCAA title in any sport, according to the NCAA.
