BATON ROUGE, La. – In today’s special edition of the Blogging from the Berm series, we hear from LSU student manager and former Georgia standout Kristyn Sandberg as the Tigers begin their SEC series against the Bulldogs tonight at 6 p.m. at Tiger Park.
Sandberg, a former All-American and draftee of the USSSA Pride of National Pro Fastpitch, the Long Island, N.Y. native hit .324 for her career and finished with 117 RBI and 33 home runs in college and was drafted fifth overall by the Pride in the 2012 NPF Draft.
It’s Kristyn Sandberg here for your latest edition of “Blogging from the Berm.” Just curious, is anyone else still enjoying the series win over Tennessee? It was a great one for sure! However, this weekend’s series is sure to bring the same excitement and competitive spirit as last, if not more, and not to mention Geaux Teal is finally here!
The girls have been hard at work all week. They’ve been ‘Locked In’ on what they need to do and I can’t wait to see them BEAT THE DAWGS!!!! Wait did I really say that? Yes, yes I did. For those of you who don’t know, I played my college career at Georgia under current head coach Lu Harris-Champer. If there’s one thing I learned, she’s a HUGE competitor and a GREAT teacher. She and the other coaches there taught me much of what I know about our game. Without them, I wouldn’t have had this wonderful opportunity to join the LSU staff, become a Tiger and work with all these talented athletes every day. It’s been nothing short of spectacular so far. As much as I love my Dawgs, don’t worry…I’ll be wearing PURPLE and GOLD and cheering the Tigers on to victory with you!
Of other importance, besides getting to play against my Alma Mater, this weekend is the second annual Geaux Teal event here at LSU. Last year’s event was a huge success, and this year’s is projected to be even better! The Geaux Teal walk starts at 10am Saturday with registration beginning at 9am. Can you find a better reason to be at Tiger Park that early? I can’t and I’m ready to take part in this great cause that affects so many people nationwide. The other manager’s and I have those snazzy teal jerseys hanging and ready to be worn Saturday. Do you have yours ready to go in support of Striking Out Ovarian Cancer?
Hope to see you all in Tiger Park this weekend. We love the support of our fans and the energy you bring. You make it incredibly hard to play here, I can tell you from first-hand experience. Be here. Be loud. Get crazy. And BEAT GEORGIA!
