UL Baseball set for Opening Day

The Cajuns kick off their 2009 campaign Friday night

Thursday, February 19, 2009 - 5:25pm

The UL baseball's drive for Ohama begins tomorrow night at M.L. "Tigue" Moore Field when the Cajuns host the Nebraska Cornhuskers. UL players and coaches put on a smile today for the cameras. The team had their official team photo taken before their 2:30 practice.

There are some questions surrounding tomorrow's opener. The Cajuns' health has been a question, especially in the outfield. Also, shortstop Will Long could miss some game this weekend with a deep thigh bruise. Nebraska will provide a good opening test for Tony Robichaux's squad.

All-in-all, the Cajuns are just happy the season is here. Most of the players we talked to at practice today said they were ready to pitch to somebody else for a change.

Kick off your Mardi Gras weekend with Cajuns baseball. Don't forget, you can catch two games this weekend on our sister station, My KLAF TV. Check us out at Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader at 2 p.m. and then again bright and early Sunday morning at 11:30. See you at the park!
