I have had an unbridled passion for LSU baseball for decades now and my husband and I, and many of our friends, have followed our beloved Tigers to the College World Series 15 times.
Yes, we in Baton Rouge are all bitterly disappointed that our Tigers did not receive a NCAA Regional bid and, therefore, will not have a chance to play on the “world stage” in our beloved Omaha this year, the real Field of Dreams.
But, I am writing this to the Commodore nation at your wonderful university and city. You are our “first cousin” in the SEC and you have a great team. I am rooting for you to win your Regional, your Super Regional and get to Omaha …and wow the country with the national championship trophy. Omaha is some special place and I hope it’s your turn this year.
Play hard, root hard, wave your Vanderbilt flags all over the new stadium — and win. We’ll be screaming at our TV sets for you this year.
Good luck, Vanderbilt.
Baton Rouge, La.
