LSU athletic director Joe Alleva is hopeful that Alex Box Stadium will be selected as an NCAA regional host site.
In a letter to Tigers fans on Tuesday, Alleva touched on a variety of topics related to active sports. As part of the message touting gains made by the baseball, softball, track and field and men’s golf teams, the athletic director revealed that he anticipates LSU’s home stadium will be selected as a regional site in the upcoming NCAA Tournament for baseball.
Check out part of his letter below.
Coach Paul Mainieri and the baseball team are at it again with a late-season surge winning their 17th SEC championship last weekend with a three-game sweep of Mississippi State. The Tigers are in Hoover this week for the SEC Tournament and are in strong contention for their sixth consecutive National Seed in the NCAA Tournament.
We anticipate Alex Box Stadium will be selected as an NCAA Regional host site this Sunday, May 28, with regional play scheduled to begin next Friday, June 2. Season ticket holders may reserve their tickets now for any postseason games played in Alex Box Stadium. I encourage you to visit LSUtix.net to reserve your tickets.
LSU enters the SEC Tournament this week at 39-17 overall with a 21-9 mark in conference play. Of course, it would be a great development if the Tigers could continue their momentum this week and then enjoy a comfortable environment during the regional round of the NCAA Tournament next week.
Stay tuned, Tigers fans.
