LSU Baseball Hall of Fame


Just leaving the game, first one of the year for me.

I had to come here and comment on the new Hall of Fame that the Wally Pontiff Jr. Foundation built. It is absolute first class and an incredible display of great tiger memorabilia. Another detail that makes Alex Box the greatest venue in college baseball.
