The book was published as “unlikely” as the National Revolutionaries Championship kicked off

The published book has a dramatic story of its own. Neil WhiteCreative Director and Publisher at nautilus publishing company He said, “The time taken to produce this product was unrivaled – in the best of times. Given the paper shortage, tight job market, and backlog of the book industry, getting this book into the hands of readers three months after the championship match was nothing less than a superb team effort.”

No Jinxing run

Anticipating a win, White and his team at Nautilus prepared a proposal to publish a memorial book about the College World Series, but “we didn’t dare send it to Ole Miss Athletics until the last strike,” White said. “I received an email sent to Ole Miss Athletics Director Keith Carter and Ole Miss Athletics CEO Denson Hollis. The proposal was attached. My laptop was open, the email was drafted, and the cursor floated over the Submit button.” After the pitch The latter, while the Rebel players were flocking to the field in Omaha for one last dog pile, sent the email.”

20000+ hollywood story pictures

Both Carter and Hollis agreed that it would be a perfect way to celebrate the historic baseball season, so White put together a team of writers that included a veteran sports reporter. Jeff Roberson. Then Nautilus partnered with Ole Miss athletics photographer Josh McCoy And the Associate Director of Athletics for Sports Production and Creative Services Mika Jane. Within three weeks, the team curated more than 20,000 images to downgrade the images to the top 200.

“The Ole Miss sports photography team, led by Josh McCoy, is the most talented in the country,” White said. “We have published dozens of photography books, but this book—not an account of nature, architecture, or the arts, but baseball—contains some of the most exciting photographs ever reproduced.”
Roberson and his team of writers captured the season’s fictional “Hollywood” arc with precision and accuracy — all within the three-week deadline.

Even members of the Ole Miss Baseball squad took part in making the book a collector’s item. Tim Elko, who was preparing for his major league career, took the time to write an introduction to the book. And the Coach Mike Bianco He wrote an article called “A Different Path”.

Fighting for press time

The Nautilus, despite the lack of paper and labor, was able to secure an opening in the press queue. But there was no margin for error. “We had a 24-hour window in late August to get the book onto the printer in order to get the press. The book had to be finished entirely — with no room for deadline extensions,” White said. “It was an unprecedented effort among the Ole Miss Athletics crew. photographers, writers, designers, editors, and manufacturers.” These combined efforts made the book available for the holiday season just three months after the final victory in Omaha.
