UofL is 0-4 against Cal State, including a Super Regional sweep in 2009, an 8-6...

Jim Patterson for drama, Slugger Field for relaxing

Post from: Baseball is a slow sport, always has been, with long drawn out games. The baseball park is a good place to relax without an interest in the outcome of the game. Like going to a Louisville Bats game, I couldn’t care less about who wins or loses at Slugger Field. Those games are simply an escape from the frantic pace of life. Great food, good people watching.
