Tony Robichaux knows a lot about baseball, but he knows even more about life.

Coach Robe answers tons of questions about wins and losses, pitchers and hitters, and somehow he always finds a way to weave in stories, metaphors and “Robeisms.” Instead of asking him about his Ragin’ Cajuns baseball team, I wanted to go off the field for some advice on manhood.

In the first part of a series called “Making A Man,” Tony talks about faith, responsibility, work ethic and trying to become a better person in all realms of life.

If you have children, you might want to share some of his philosophies with them. When Tony opens up the Book of Robe, you listen.
