9th will feature a three game home stand against the Purdue Boilermakers who will undoubtedly be coming to town looking to
make a statement in their series against the Tigers. This is historically easier said than done as the Tigers are incredibly
tough to beat at home. Another big three game home stand takes place at Alex Box Stadium from March 21st through the 23rd
against SEC rivals, the Georgia Bulldogs. Both teams will be looking to establish dominance in the conference and will not
be going down without a fight. Check out all of the big games at Alex Box Stadium right here on StubHub and get out and support

long and storied history. Now in his seventh year, manager Paul Mainieri has assembled quite an impressive roster which will
surely make waves in the SEC and beyond. Expect Alex Box Stadium to be overflowing with purple and gold clad Tigers supporters
for each and every home game looking to cheer the home team on to a return to national dominance in 2014!
Tigers Baseball Conference
While the SEC has long been known for its college football, baseball has always been a big
deal in the conference as well and in recent years several schools have stepped up their game making it extremely difficult
for a team to navigate the tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses South Carolina and Florida are regularly tough
competition and with the recent development of programs like Georgia and Mississippi State, the conference continues to get
tougher. The SEC as a whole has won ten National Championships in baseball and has had at least one participant in the title
game in each of the past three seasons including the 2011 Championship when South Carolina won their second straight championship
by defeating Florida in an all SEC final. When it comes to college sports there is arguably no conference that is historically
better or more dominant than the SEC.
Nothing quite compares to the time honored tradition
of taking in a baseball game. After all, there is a reason it is referred to as America's Pastime. From the smell of the freshly
cut grass to the National Anthem bellowing through the stands and the crack of the bat as a hitter connects with a pitch,
to the sight of a ball flying over the outfield wall and the taste of a fresh hot dogs or Cracker Jacks, attending a baseball
game is a a sensory experience like no other and the memories it produces will last a lifetime. The ultimate family day or
night out, a baseball game is the perfect bonding experience whether seeing the game with family, friends, or co-workers.
As the innings and pitches pile up everyone in attendance can feel the intensity pick up as every pitch, run, and base runner,
begin to matter more and more. By the time the seventh inning stretch rolls around a break from the action is welcome just
to settle the nerves and enjoy a traditional song before getting right back to all the excitement for the final two and a
half innings. As you file out of the stadium after the last out you likely will already be wanting to start making plans for
your next visit to the ballpark.
Harry Rabenhorst remains the longest tenured coach in the history
of LSU baseball, he coached the team from 1927 through 1942 and then left the program briefly to serve in World War II before
returning to coach the team again from 1946 until 1956.
