UL and LSU renew their interstate baseball rivalry
tonight with a 6:30 game at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge. It will be the
first time the two teams have met since the 2002 regionals, a heated series in
which LSU suffered its first and only home post-season loss to another in-state
school before rallying back to win the regional. Also memorable was a series of
heated exchanges in the three games, laid out in today’s Advocate, which
resulted in two players and UL coach Tony Robichaux being ejected. Because of
the bad blood, the two teams have avoided scheduling each other
since, but that changed last year after Robichaux welcomed new LSU Coach Paul
Manieri and both coaches agreed to put the past behind them. Tonight’s game
will be broadcast on Cox channel 37, KPEL 1420 AM and Eagle 98.1 FM.
