Tigers to open new Box against Villanova tonight

For the LSU baseball program, the first day of a highly anticipated future arrives today with the debut of a state-of-the-art stadium.

At the same time, the Tigers bring proud echoes from the past with them into the 2009 season, the residual impact of a memorable finish to last season that LSU rode all the way to its home away from home for the first time in four years.

The Tigersā€™ new home, the sparkling, new Alex Box Stadium, will be officially unveiled today when LSU entertains Villanova to start a three-game season-opening series.
