Ragin’ Cajuns After Baton Rouge Super Regional [VIDEO]
The Ragin' Cajuns are keeping their heads held high after bowing out in the Baton Rouge Super Regional, and some are saying goodbye.
Five seniors played their final two games in Baton Rouge, and Blake Trahan is sure to be off to the pros as well. One senior, Tyler Girouard, got to speak about his time as a Ragin' Cajun. Girouard, or "Shug," was the heartbeat of this year's team. In his press conference, he mentions how Head Coach Tony Robichaux taught him more than just baseball. He taught him what it means to be a man.
Coach Robichaux fielded some tough questions about the loss, sitting behind the microphone. He gave credit where credit was due and spoke like the honest man he is. He also had some high praise for the youngest man at the table, who didn't have to say much because his game spoke for itself.
Gunner Leger pitched a gem of a game against LSU, which warranted compliments from both Kade Scivique and Alex Bregman. Both Tigers said the freshman "kept them off balance" inside Alex Box Stadium. His emotions are pretty clear, but the future is incredibly bright for this Cajun pitching staff.
The last man at the podium tried to steal the show during the game, pulling off consecutive diving grabs. Kyle Clement said he was just trying to leave it all on the field for the seniors. Anybody inside that stadium or that watched it on television can verify that he left a lot out on the field in right center.
Losing always hurts. True competitors never accept the feeling, which is why the Cajuns are already vowing to come back strong next year. With Leger on the mound with the rest of the insane freshman talent, why not believe?
