New York Governor Bans Baseball Team From Hattiesburg

Chicot Memorial

HATTIESBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Mississippi law that lets government clerks or private business people cite their own religious beliefs to deny services to same-sex couples is affecting college baseball. The University of Southern Mississippi was supposed to play three games in Hattiesburg in late February against Stony Brook University. Those games were canceled because New York Governor Andrew Cuomo banned all non-essential state travel to Mississippi after Governor Phil Bryant signed the law in 2016. Southern Miss will play in a tournament at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas instead. The law that could limit same-sex marriage took effect in October 2017 amid a series of legal challenges. It remains on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
