The measure would also add 160 seats for fans by the left and right field foul lines with the majority of the new seating coming to the right field side.

The right field bullpen for the home team will be moved from the right field foul line to a "newly constructed area under the right-field bleachers." The visitors bullpen by the left field foul line will be moved behind a newly built wall down but will remain down the left field line.

Absolutely no reason to not have chairbacks down the line in the Box. Hopefully this is just a band aid for the bullpens and we'll get a bigger reno next year.

I like having the visitor pen on the field. I think it’s much harder mentally being that close to heckling fans while trying to get in the right head space

How? There’s hardly any foul territory as is.

It’s really embarrassing that a program like LSU’s has bleachers in its stadium

Might as well bring the fence in and change the stadium name to Alex Bandbox. Spending over a million dollars but under $3MM on this bullshite is so stupid

Totally sucks, but LSU doesn’t have too do anything and they know it. They know the renewal rate will be 100% regardless. The box needs upgrades and not cheap ones.

I just noticed those were created on 3/31/23. It’s amazing how long this shite takes to get done these days.

Johnson wasn’t too embarrassed to accept that trophy in Omaha.

You guys are so dramatic. The coach knows what he needs to win. He’d rather a bee indoor infield, the latest technology or a bigger recruiting budget.

Winning fills the bleachers.
