·1 min read

The LSU Baseball team will face UL-Lafayette on Sunday in a Fall baseball scrimmage.

According to the press release from the LSU athletic department, the first pitch comes at 12:00 p.m. CT. Gates will open at 11:00 a.m. and parking will be free. The fall baseball practice schedule will continue through Nov. 21. The game on Sunday will feature 16 innings with a 30-minute break between the 8th and 9th innings.

“Team practice has been progressing very well,” said LSU first-year coach Jay Johnson. “We really appreciate the fans coming out last Sunday; that was really impressive, and we’re looking forward to seeing them again this weekend. We’ll have one more week of fall practice after this weekend, so we’re looking to finish strong.

“The development of our pitching has been really encouraging; we walked two batters in 20 innings against UNO, and that’s a significant positive development. Limiting the free bases from the mound has been impressive, and I think we made two errors in 20 innings last weekend. I thought we handled the baseball really well, and when you’re limiting opportunities for the opponent like that, it’s really hard for them to score.”

The 2022 LSU baseball season begins on Feb. 18 when the Tigers host Maine.
