If you are unfamiliar with the religion that is college baseball in the South, welcome. It is a LOT of fun— despite the fact that Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn loathes fun.

On Friday night, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette hosted No. 20 University of California, Irvine for the first of a three-game opening weekend series. The Anteaters being really good is not uncommon, as west coast schools are typically good at baseball, but it is more rare to find them in the Top 25.

This year, they hit bombs.

UL Lafayette is a “mid major” powerhouse out of the Sun Belt and the Ragin’ Cajuns take America’s favorite past time very seriously. ML ‘Tigue’ Moore Field at Russo Park was packed for Friday’s Opening Day and, even in sub 50-degree temperatures (which is cold in Lafayette), the atmosphere was electric.

At the concession stands, cans of Natty Light beer were being sold for $2.

They didn’t last long. I got a text in the bottom half of the first inning that all of the Natties were sold out.

All of them. Every single one. In the first inning.

If you are a diehard baseball fan put put Russo Park on your bucket list. Maybe don’t put it ahead of Swayze, The Dude or Walker-Baum, but put it on your bucket list.

I went to a game at Russo Park a few years back and had some remarkable crawfish nachos. It’s a great place and the Ragin’ Cajuns are great people, so long as you don’t cross them.
