The evening will feature dinner, silent and live auctions and an autograph session with the 2018 Tigers.

The event is being held for the first time in the expansive Celtic Studios, allowing fans to enjoy a “ball-park” environment during the evening.

“We’re going to create the atmosphere that fans experience when they come to the ball park, and I think they will really enjoy the new venue at Celtic Studios,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “We want fans to dress like they’re coming to an LSU game, and the banquet will have the feel of a big tailgate party.

“We’re thrilled that Alex Bregman has agreed to join us for the event, and his energy and passion for baseball will make this a very special night.”
