Tigers To Host 2003 Fall Classic This Weekend

BATON ROUGE — The LSU softball team will play host to the five-team 2003 Fall Classic this weekend at Tiger Park.

The field includes LSU, Bossier Parish Community College, Louisiana College, Nicholls State and Southeastern Louisiana.

There are six games scheduled for Saturday. Play will begin at 8 a.m. with Southeastern Louisiana taking on Louisiana College. LSU will begin play at 10 a.m. against Southeastern Louisiana.

At noon, Nicholls State will take on Louisiana College, before LSU battles Louisiana College. Bossier Parish Community College takes on Nicholls State at 4 p.m. before Louisiana College closes out the day against Bossier Parish Community College.

On Sunday, play will begin at 9 p.m. with Nicholls State taking on Bossier Parish Community College. LSU then takes on Bossier Parish Community College at 11 a.m. and closes out the tournament against Nicholls State at 1 p.m.

Last season the Fall Classic was cancelled due to rain and LSU instead won a doubleheader against Louisiana College during the fall season. In 2001, the Tigers posted a 5-0 record in the Fall Classic, outscoring opponents 41-0.

LSU opens the 2003 campaign on Feb. 6 at home in the Tiger Classic. Centenary, Illinois, Oklahoma and Southeastern Louisiana will participate in the three-day tournament.
