Robichaux Posts 900th Win
UL baseball’s head coach Tony Robichaux has posted his 900th career win, as the Ragin’ Cajuns overcame a three-run lead by Texas-San Antonio to beat the Roadrunners 9-6 Saturday at Tigue Moore Field in Lafayette. (Click here for details of Saturday's game.)
Robichaux began his coaching career at his alma mater, McNeese State, in 1987. He made the move east to Cajun country in 1995 and has led the boys in vermilion and white on the diamond ever since. Robichaux became one of the youngest coaches in NCAA Division I history to reach 500 victories while at UL-Lafayette and has made the university’s baseball program one of the best in the south.
His list of achievements and visits to championships is long. However, he credits his coaching staff and players for the success of the program. And on the roster these days is his son, Austin Robichaux, who is starting for the team.
Coach Tony Robichaux will send his boys out on the field for another game this afternoon at 1:00 to play for another win at Tigue Moore Field.
