It was a Big Mac. And Wes Grisham won everyone Big Mac's twice in the same weekend...maybe MSU?

I do miss the SEC doubleheaders.

Remember when a fan called out USC coach Mike Gillespie?

Was anyone at the game where the guy went streaking??

Dude was wearing a trench coat and jumped over the fence down the third base line and ran to the right field foul line and then all the way back to left field before they caught him. It was frigid. Dude was hung like a horse.

The dent was still there the last time I checked.

re: Favorite Memory in the Old Alex Box Stadium


Not anything really specific, but I grew up loving LSU because of their baseball team. I was born in '90 so I grew up through the golden years.

My Uncle and god mother would take me to the games my entire childhood and they sat at the very top of the grandstand. I loved sitting up there with them and learning the sport through them. When I was older, they got me a scorecard so I could properly keep scores of game with hits, errors, etc.

My uncle took me to get a baseball signed every year before games (since we showed up when the gates opened) I have a baseball for every year from '90 until 2002 signed by every player.

I loved the black jerseys and I always wore my black hat that the players wore.

I love LSU baseball, I'm blessed to have grown up in such a great time

My friend and I sitting out behind the fence in the bushes eating nachos and watching the game while waiting for home runs. This was around 85.

Around the same time I remember my dad leaning on the fence talking to Ralpheal Palmero and Will Clark before one game.

The player from USC crushing the ball one regional over and over. I think our fans were throwing ice at him and he was show boating as rounding the bases.

My favorite was someone in the left outfield bringing a damn billy boat into the stands late in one game. They had been giving left fielder hell all game and then around the 8th inning they brought that goat in and stood him up for the outfielder to see. I think the player got as big of a laugh out of that as the fans.

Game 2 vs UC Irvine last super regional in the old box.

Scored free grandstand seats for free front row right behind home plate. Unbelievable comeback.

Friday night game vs South Carolina I think in 2000 where, if I remember correctly Jeremey Witten hit a walk off home run. I think South Carolina came into that series, which was the first conference series of the year, ranked number 1 and undefeated.

I've got a lot but its gotta be Game 2 against Irvine. Before "the inning" it was like everybody in the stadium decided we weren't losing that game and just willed the team to victory.

There was such a weird electricity that came off of that place. I love the new stadium and it had to be built. But it just doesn't have the character that the Old Box had. That place was a living creature.
