This Friday, LSU will hold a public ceremony unveiling a statue of former baseball coach and athletic director Skip Bertman.

Skip Bertman coached LSU from 1984-2001, won five national championships and led the Tigers to seven Southeastern Conference championships.

LSU athletic director Scott Woodward tells theadvocate.com -

This is more than a monument to Skip’s unparalleled achievements on the field. This is recognition of a man who has committed his life to make the lives of those around him richer than they might otherwise be.

His contributions to thousands of people, including myself, as a mentor, leader and friend will live on for generations.

 

Bertman currently holds the highest winning percentage in SEC history at .724. He finished his career at 870-330-3.
