PLAY BALL! Cajuns Open Season vs. Sam Houston

Former Ragin’ Cajuns assistant Matt Deggs recruited several of the players who will be contributors for the nationally ranked Cajuns this weekend.

Now Deggs has to try and beat the team he helped create.

The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns open the 2016 season Friday night at M. L. “Tigue” Moore Field against Deggs’ Sam Houston State Bearkats and it looks as though Deggs is using the same formula that was used at Louisiana when the Cajuns brought in a slew of newcomers for 2013.

Deggs has 29 new players, 19 of them freshmen on his squad this season after going 31-28 a season ago and advancing to the finals of the Southland Conference Baseball Tournament.

While both Deggs and Louisiana head coach Tony Robichaux plan to throw multiple pitchers this weekend, here are the starting pitching matchups with 2015 numbers in parenthesis.


SHSU– Senior RHP Sam Odom (4-5, 4.45 ERA)

UL–Sophomore LHP Gunner Leger (6-5, 2.99 ERA)


SHSU–Senior LHP Hayden Nixon (0-1, 3.09 ERA)

UL–Sophomore RHP Wyatt Marks (6-1, 3.24 ERA)


SHSU–Junior RHP Cody Brown (Transfer)

UL–Freshman RHP Nick Lee

Game times are at 6pm Friday, 2pm Saturday and 1pm Sunday.  All games will be heard on 96.5 KPEL-FM.
