LSU Baseball Renovations

Thanks to generosity of TAF donors big changes are coming for LSU Baseball. Through the expansion of the baseball hitting facility at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field, 4,300 square feet of space, including a 3,500 square-foot weight room, will be added to the facility.

Construction is scheduled to begin on June 1, and it will be completed in August 2019. The project is fully funded through private donations to Tiger Athletic Foundation.

“This is a major upgrade for our facility,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “It will provide a tremendous benefit in recruiting, and it will enable our players to operate in a much more efficient manner with their weight training schedules. An on-site facility serves a valuable time-management function for the players in satisfying all of their athletic and academic requirements.”

Mainieri said that along with the new weight room, the facility will include a nutritional fueling station for student-athletes and a locker room for former LSU players to utilize when preparing for MLB spring training.

“The facility also makes a statement to our former players that once you leave LSU, it doesn’t end your relationship with LSU. When you become a part of our program, it’s for your entire life, not just the three or four years that you matriculate at our school.”
