Mid 80's, McNeese had a big left handed black guy that hit one over the lights in right center. It was a midweek game, and back when the lights weren't nearly as bright. The ball just disappeared! It probably wasn't the farthest ball ever hit, but it was the highest at the point it cleared the fen...

It's usually pretty easy to get tickets outside the Box. The ticket office will likely just have Standing Room Only tickets for a weekend game. You might try the ticket exchange and line them up ahead of time. If you're coming in May, the way the Tigers play between now and then will definitely i...

Seriously, they will have to be priced very cheap, and that might not help anyway. Let's face it, we're not getting close to 100,000 for the rent-a-wins. As long a...
