Softball Announces April Schedule Changes

BATON ROUGE – The LSU softball team will switch its Florida State and McNeese State home dates in April announced Monday by head coach Beth Torina.

The Tigers will now face McNeese State on Tuesday, April 17 followed by a Wednesday, April 18 meeting against Florida State. Both games will keep their 6 p.m. start times. 

Season ticket holders will be asked to use their original McNeese State tickets for Tuesday’s game in addition to their original Florida State from February to Wednesday’s contest.

The LSU Sports Radio Network will carry Wednesday’s Florida State game on Country Legends 104.9 FM and inside the Geaux Zone on LSUsports.net. KLSU 91.1 FM will broadcast Tuesday’s McNeese State game.

The LSU Athletics Ticket Office continues to urge season ticket holders to be cautious when separating their bar-coded tickets. The barcode must be attached to the ticket for scanning purposes when arriving at the gate. If the barcode detaches, season ticket holders must stop by the LSU Athletics Ticket Office on the first floor of the Athletics/Administration Building for a reprint of their tickets.

LSU returns to action and concludes its season series against Nicholls State Wednesday at Tiger Park. First pitch is on-tap for 6 p.m. and the first 750 fans will receive a set of 2012 LSU softball trading cards. 

Live video, live audio and live stats are available inside the Geaux Zone on LSUsports.net. The game also will be carried live Country Legends 104.9 FM in the Baton Rouge area with Patrick Wright and Kent Lowe set to call the action.

Fans also can follow every pitch of LSU softball this season via live in-game updates on LSU softball’s social media outlets at www.Facebook.com/lsusoftball and @lsu_softball on Twitter.

The Tiger Park Ticket Booth will open 90 minutes prior to first pitch. Fans can purchase tickets on-site starting at $5 for adult general admission and $3 for youth ages 3-12. Tickets also are available online at www.LSUtix.net.

As part of Brittany Mack‘s “Geaux Play” initiative, LSU softball is encouraging fans to share the gift of sports with special needs children. Fans can donate new or gently used sports equipment during the remaining LSU softball home games at Tiger Park. For more information, visit LSUsports.net/geauxplay.

All items collected will be given directly to the Miracle League Association and six local schools that Mack will visit during the season. At LSU’s series finale versus Ole Miss on April 22, Mack will invite all the children to the game as her special VIP guests for “Geaux Play” day at Tiger Park.
