Skip Bertman’s name is nearly synonymous with the rise of college baseball as we know it today. What he crafted at Louisiana State University started a ripple effect through the SEC and across the nation. A fixture at the College World Series, LSU fans got so used to going to Omaha that many still go to this day, whether the Tigers are participating or not.
In this episode, Coach Bertman reflects upon his early start in coaching (14 years old!), his days in Baton Rouge as the head coach at LSU, and his days a the athletic director. We talk about the hiring of Paul Mainieri, his coaching philosophies, and the various items in Baton Rouge that bear his name.
Coach Bertman will be speaking at the 2017 I-70 Coaches Clinic in Greenville, Illinois, January 15 & 16.
