Baseball: LSU, UL ranked in best college ballparks

The Advertiser, July 8, 2016

BATON ROUGE — Stadium Journey has ranked LSU’s Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field No. 1 in its list of the Top 50 best ballparks in college baseball. UL’s “Tigue” Moore field was ranked No. 21.

With the College World Series completed, Stadium Journey has compiled the work of correspondents across the country to produce the 2016 NCAA Ballpark Experience Rankings.

Stadium Journey uses the “FANFARE” system to provide an overall fan experience rating based on several important categories. These categories include F – Food & Beverage (concessions), A – Atmosphere, N – Neighborhood, F – Fans, A – Access, R – Return on Investment, and E – Extras. The combined average score is based on a five-star system, where five is the highest rating possible.

In its review of LSU’s venue, Stadium Journey wrote, “The Tiger baseball experience at Alex Box Stadium has it all, from a powerhouse ballclub, state-of-the-art facility, great food selection, a rabid fan base, and an intimidating atmosphere for opposing teams. Fans of college baseball would be wise to make the pilgrimage to Baton Rouge part of their ballpark bucket list.”

The Ragin’ Cajuns’ ballpark cracked the Top 25, with Stadium Journey writing that The Tigue should be on fans’ ballpark bucket list.

“M.L. ‘Tigue’ Moore Field has served as home field to the Ragin’ Cajuns baseball team since 1978. The ballpark features a newly installed synthetic turf system, a seating capacity of 3,755, and 71 foot scoreboard featuring video replay and graphics. If you consider yourself a college baseball fan, a visit to The Tigue in south Louisiana needs to be on your bucket list.”
