BATON ROUGE - For the fourth-consecutive season, the LSU softball program has set a new benchmark for season tickets sales. The Tigers have already sold 621 season tickets as of Wednesday morning as announced by the LSU Athletics Ticket Office.
For the first-time ever, season tickets will be scanned upon entrance to Tiger Park. The LSU Athletics Ticket Office urges season ticket holders to be cautious when separating their bar-coded tickets. The barcode must be attached to the ticket 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.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.LSUtix.net, the official ticket website of LSU Athletics. Ticket also can be bought in person at the ticket office on the first floor of the Athletics Administration Building or by calling (225) 578-2184 or (800) 960-8587.
LSU students, faculty and staff are admitted free to all regular season Tiger softball games with a valid LSU ID.
Single-game tickets are now available for each of LSU's 25 home dates. Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for youth ages 3-12 except for the "Pack for the Pack" game versus Georgia Tech on March 21 where all tickets have been reduced to $1.
LSU, ranked No. 22 in the initial NFCA Top 25, is two days away from opening the 2012 campaign and playing host to the Tiger Classic.
The Tigers usher in the next chapter of their storied history under first-year coach Beth Torina Friday versus Penn State. First pitch is slated for 6 p.m. from Tiger Park. LSU also has match-ups slated against No. 15 Michigan and Louisiana Tech on opening weekend.
