re: LSU is Naming the Baseball Field "Skip Bertman Field"


tigerswin, I was not making any subtle comments bout Skip's fundraising while AD. I've been following LSU athletics a lot longer than you have I'd guess, as I've had season tickes since 1961. As such, I recognize the value of keeping our facilities upgraded & top of the line. I was referencing some of the things done behind the scenes. The last comment was more bout Skip as a person, not LSU's AD. And, no, I am not stupid, just been around the block long enough to hear things.

Like...a lot! Well deserved, we wouldn't be 33-2, #1, or have the best baseball facilities without him.

To me, it's much worse watching them bring out a steakhouse chain sign when a military veteran gets applauded in between innings.

Very classy of LSU. In reality Skip deserves to have the entire stadium named after him, but props to LSU for ensuring the legacy of a veteran.

LSU is Naming the Baseball Field

"Skip Bertman Field" the stadium will still be named Alec Box.

Like or dislike?
LINK



Of course I like....
What else would it be? Smoke Laval Field?
Boots Randolph? Jim Smith? Bob Brodhead?
Joe Dean?

It is 'AleXXXXXXXXXX Box' Stadium.
Hawthorne just pronounces it 'Alec Box Stadium' because it sounds better and rolls off tongue better than saying 'Alex Box Stadium.'

where would college baseball be without Skip? Every team should name their field Skip Bertman Field.

Hawthorne pronounces it that way because that's the way the family says his name was pronounced.
