BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — On the college front, the LSU baseball tigers took their first official step to getting back to Omaha today.
The Tigers held their annual media day at Alex Box Stadium. LSU Head Coach Paul Mainieri enters his seventh year as head coach. Last year's team was just one win away from reaching the college world series. He feels this year's team has the capability to get there.
"I have a lot of optimism and that is the way I coach, I know you think that i am like that every year but this year is no different," Mainieri said.
The Tigers first game is set for February 15 against Maryland.
