Getting ready for the new baseball season

While their classmates may be enjoying the holiday break, the LSU Eunice baseball team has been busy preparing for the upcoming 2017 season.
“They all had exit meetings with the coaches at the conclusion of the fall season,” head baseball coach Jeff Willis said. “We discussed where they stood with the team, what their strengths and weaknesses are as well as a grade given by their teammates.”
The players underwent workouts each day of their break in preparation of their return on Jan. 10.
