After the Mississippi State baseball won the College World Series to claim the school's first NCAA team championship, a state senator is looking to honor the win with a new car tag.

Sen. Josh Harkins, R-Flowood, tweeted Monday that he's requested a bill to create a Hail State Championship car tag. Harkins added the bill will be ready in time for the 2022 legislative session, or if Gov. Tate Reeves calls a special session before then.

The District 20 senator request comes five days after the Mississippi State Bulldogs defeated Vanderbilt 9-0 in the College World Series championship final. Further info on ordering the tag will come in the future, Harkins wrote.
