LSU Skipper Preps For 6th Season In Baton Rouge…
LSU was the talk of college baseball on NCAA selection Monday in 2011. Paul Mainieri’s Tigers, two seasons removed from a national championship, missed the SEC Tournament, but still managed 36 wins. LSU was not picked to the NCAA Tournament field of 64 in 2011, but is considered by many a favorite to make it all the way to the College World Series in 2012.
In this exclusive interview with College Baseball 360 editor Sean Stires, Mainieri discusses the disappointment of missing last year’s tournament, his youthful pitching staff from a year ago that is now full of seasoned veterans, the three pitchers who are battling to fill the closer role vacated by former All-American Matt Ott, what drew him to hire new pitching coach Alan Dunn, what he would change if he could change one thing about college baseball, and much more.
