BATON ROUGE, La. – The 2020 LSU baseball team took the field for the first time Sunday afternoon with a full-squad practice and a four-inning scrimmage as the Tigers began their six-week fall practice period in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

“It felt great to have the uniforms on again and get fall practice started,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri, who is No. 2 among active NCAA Division I coaches with 1,455 career victories. “We’re excited to begin working with what I believe is a talented team with a lot of potential.

“It’s important that we stress the fundamentals of the game at this time of the year to have our players prepared for a very challenging schedule in the spring. We have a lot of work to do and a lot of young players, but I expect this team to sustain the standard of excellence we’ve established at LSU.”

The fall practice session, which will feature several intra-squad scrimmages, culminates with the annual Purple-Gold World Series on November 6 and November 8. All of the fall practice games, scrimmages and workouts in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field are free and open to the public.

The Tigers will also play two exhibition games this fall against other schools – Sunday, October 27, at 3 p.m. CT versus UNO in Alex Box Stadium, and Sunday, November 3, at 1 p.m. CT at Nicholls State in Thibodaux, La.

The Tigers begin the 2020 season on February 14, when LSU plays host to Indiana in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.
