Legendary LSU play-by-play man Jim Hawhtorne called his final game from Alex Box Stadium on Sunday.
The "Voice of the Tigers" will retire after the next basketball season, making this his last calling LSU Baseball games. The Tigers clinched their spot in the College World Series with a 6-3 victory against Louisiana-Lafayette. He'll call his 17th trip to Omaha, but this marked the last time he'd take the mic at The Box.
"This is my final game at Alex Box Stadium. I want to thank all the gentleman I've had the opportunity to work with in calling over 2,000 games in my 32 years as the Voice of LSU Baseball. You all have made my job much easier. To the great Tiger nation of baseball fans, you make a game at The Box the greatest experience in all of collegiate baseball. I'm proud and honored to be a small part of it...
"And for the final time from Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field, thank you, and good night."
