LSU will be unveiling a statue of Skip Bertman on Friday at 6 p.m. CT during a ceremony near the home plate entrance of Alex Box Stadium. The event will be open to the public. Per LSUSports.net:

The Skip Bertman Statue will commemorate the accomplishments of the LSU baseball coach from 1984-2001 who led the Tigers to five National Championships (1991, 1993, 1996, 1997, 2000) and seven Southeastern Conference Championships. He is one of only three coaches in NCAA history to win five baseball national titles.

The statue will be the centerpiece of the newly constructed Legacy Plaza, which will contain graphics and plaques depicting the rich history of the LSU Baseball program.

“This is more than a monument to Skip’s unparalleled achievements on the field,” said LSU Director of Athletics Scott Woodward. “This is recognition of a man who has committed his life to making the lives of those around him richer than they might otherwise be. His contributions to thousands of people, including myself, as a mentor, leader and friend will live on for generations.”
