BATON ROUGE – LSU softball’s Allison Falcon, Katie Guillory, assistant coach Lindsay Leftwich along with baseball’s Alex Edward and Chris Sciambra paid a visit to a local children’s hospital Monday during the two program’s off day.

"My favorite part was seeing a three-year old smile so big she could not even speak,” Guillory said. “Everyone was so thankful for us being there, and it just puts a smile on my face knowing just being there can put a smile on these kids and family's faces.

They spent time with the patients and lifted their spirits by coloring with them in their rooms. Afterwards, the patients received autographed LSU softball and baseball posters in addition to a pair of LSU softball sunglasses.

“I really enjoyed meeting and talking with the children at the hospital today,” Falcon said. “They were really excited to see us, and we had a great time playing with them. Visits like these really put things into perspective, and I can’t wait to go on more visits like this with my team.”

Both programs are coming off SEC road series victories over Top 10 opponents. LSU softball won two of three games at No. 10 Texas A&M, while LSU baseball accomplished the same feat at No. 10 Arkansas.
