LSU Baseball fans show appreciation of victorious Stony Brook

Baton Rouge, La. - LSU's College World Series dreams were dashed Sunday night when the Stony Brook Seawolves handed the Tigers a 7-2 defeat to close out the best-of-three series.

But for the fans at Alex Box Stadium, there are no hard feelings.  In fact LSU fans and players both said afterwards that they would be pulling for Stony Brook to win it all in their first CWS appearance.

After Sunday night's game wrapped up, the fans gave Stony Brook a standing ovation in addition to congratulating them up close and personal during a victory lap.  Victorious Seawolves Pitcher Frankie Vanderka was very grateful for the experience "These fans here...they are some of the best fans around.  You would think they might be hasty after we won but every single one of them told us 'go win it all, we're going to be there cheering you on' so I've got to pay my respects to them.  They made this time a great experience for us."

    His name has been brought up a lot since he joined the Saints after preseason last year. But the truth is quarterback Taysom Hill is a bit of a mystery. Head coach Sean Payton raved about him.
