If it wasnt for Skip the players would still be painting the dugouts and cleaning the stands out after games on the old Alex Box Field. Skip is a first class guy, and a TRUE LSU man..

What about rename the Box as "Skip Bertman Stadium" ?

That was considered briefly when the move to the new Alex Box was being planned.

Skip himself vetoed it. He said he would not want his name to replace a former player who paid the ultimate price serving his country.

Dislike! The scam Bertman was pulling with the baseball camp after he became AD, was not only sleazy it set LSU baseball back, because we ended up with Smoke instead of a better coach.

I thought it was state law that state facilities could not be named after living persons?

This was because we were spending too much $ removing the names after they went to prison.
