Ragin' Cajun pitcher Carson Baranik spent his freshmen year at LSU, then played JUCO ball in Miami, and is now a member of the Louisiana pitching staff.

Ryan caught up with Carson to see how he's fitting in, which teammate he hates pitching too, who inspired him at a young age, and more. He's also a fan of Olde Tyme Grocery. (I clearly agree, as evidence here)

The 2014 season begins this Friday when Louisiana opens up a 4 game weekend series with Eastern Illinois. First pitch is set for 6:00.
