Clearing up the start times for the Super Regional at Alex Box Stadium
ESPN owns the television rights to all NCAA Super Regional games being played across the country, including the contests this weekend at Alex Box Stadium. As a result, the NCAA and ESPN determine when the games will be played.
LSU did request that its Super Regional games start at night, but ultimately ESPN had to take into account eight Super Regional sites when determining game times.
We appreciate the tremendous fan support that we have and we hope that the early start times on Friday and Saturday won't dampen what will be a great weekend of LSU baseball at Alex Box Stadium.
