With baseball season almost here I wanted to bring up some of the best moment in the Old Alex Box.
Kind of generic but there was nothing better than a Sunday afternoon during SEC play with Eddy Furniss would come to the plate and everyone in the stadium chanted ED-DY ED-DY ED-DY.
Also the 1997 regional where we lost to South Alabama in Game 2 and then had to come back and beat them twice. The 2 games were played on a Monday afternoon. It rained the whole weekend and I remember the game against Long Beach State lasted until about 1 in the morning and then the 2 games were the next day. That was the greatest regional memory ever. What a blast.

I have some great memories at the old Box. One of my best was a random weekday night. I want to say it was late 90's when LSU beat Southern 28-2. I think Blair Barbier went like 6 for 6 and hit for the cycle.
I just remember it being odd, because in warmups Southern players lined up on the foul line while the Southern pitcher warmed up. For obvious reasons, it didnt really matter

ULL game where the bat "accidentally slipped" out of the batters hands and flew into the dugout, almost killing the ULL pitching coach. Stare down into the ULL dugout after an LSU homerun which cleared the benches again. almost had about 3 brawls that game.
