BATON ROUGE, La. – Admission is free for the 2020 LSU Baseball Fan Fest, which begins at 12 p.m. CT on Sunday, January 26, in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

The Fan Fest signifies the beginning of the college baseball season, and it gives fans an behind-the-scenes look at the Fighting Tiger program. The event provides exclusive access to the baseball facilities and the opportunity to meet and get autographs from the 2020 LSU Tigers.

Fans will be allowed to watch the Tigers engage in a scrimmage that starts at 1 p.m. Following the scrimmage, at approximately 2:30 p.m., coach Paul Mainieri and selected players will speak to the crowd, and a 2020 season hype video will debut on the giant video board in left field.

From 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., fans may tour the stadium’s facilities that showcase the success of the program and the operation of the best venue in college baseball.

Among the facilities included in the tour are the playing field and dugouts; the team locker room; the weight training center, pitching lab and batting cages; and the LSU Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

LSU players and coaches will be available to sign autographs during the stadium tour. Free 2020 LSU baseball schedule posters will be given away during the event, and fans are permitted to use the poster and one additional item for the autograph session.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase in the concessions areas, and the LSU SportShop will be open throughout the day. The event will also feature silent auctions of LSU sports memorabilia and other valuable prizes.
