Goodbye to the Box

Alex Box Stadium's final regular season series is this weekend when LSU hosts Mississippi State.

Some folks are getting nostalgic.

Let me be the first to remind you that until 1984, the Box was an eyesore on campus. LSU often played day baseball games in front of students studying for exams. Until Skip Bertman came along, the atmosphere was almost nil.

So this weekend's celebration is as much about what LSU baseball became at the Box under Bertman as it is the stadium itself.

This isn't the Green Monster of the ivy on the walls at Fenway. This is an old stadium. The time has come for a move into the new.
