LAFAYETTE — Southern University baseball coach Roger Cador looked up at the cool, rainy sky above M.L. “Tigue” Moore Field on Tuesday night and found the perfect description for his team’s performance against the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Southern starter Chase Richard, a senior lef-thander, pitched two innings, allowing six hits and four runs as his season’s earned run average ballooned to 16.00.

Cador said he was encouraged with the pitching of relievers Troy Laborde and Cody Hall, who held the Cajuns hitless in a combined 22/3  innings.

Now Enrolling!!!
Next Level Baseball is now enrolling for all sessions.  Here at NLB, we specialize in teaching proper 'throwing' mechanics.  Because of that, we encourage all athletes involved in The Athletic Pitcher Program to attend at least two (2) pitching sessions per week in order to maximize the benefits of the program.  A hitting session once a week could be added if desired.

Although all athletes are given a choice of mixing and/or matching sessions, great benefits are derived from concentrating on a particular skill at least twice a week. 

NLB places a heavy emphasis on conditioning, flexibility, and agility.  Our goal is to help our students become more athletic while, at the same time, improving their baseball skills.

Our programs are designed for ages 8 through 18.
