Eunice, LA, September 30, 2014 -- LSUE Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach Jeff Willis announced today that he will schedule an exhibition baseball game at 6:00pm on Saturday, November 7, 2015 -- Saturday evening of the EXPERIENCE LOUISIANA FESTIVAL. Bengal Stadium is located adjacent to the Community Education Building and the main festival grounds, and the game will bring an additional special component to the festival experience.
The 4-time National Champion Bengal Baseball team (2006, 2008, 2010, 2012) has an astonishing record of success. Former Bengal Baseball players have been drafted by over twenty Major League teams.
Additionally, Coach Willis noted that the student athletes (baseball, softball, and basketball), some 60-80 strong, will be on hand to assist with production of the festival as volunteers in various ways. Festival planners are grateful for the support of Bengal Athletics!
