LSU Baseball Beats ULL!!! (Wally Pontiff Tribute and Game)

LSU’s Nicholas Pontiff (18), the brother of the late Wally Pontiff, gets a pat on the helmet from Micah Gibbs, right, at home after Gibbs’ two-run home run which also scored Mikie Mahtook in the bottom of the fourth inning during the Wally Pontiff Classic at Zephyr Field.

It seems like yesterday when the State woke up with shock that Wally Pontiff had died in bed at an age way too young. But times passes by and last night the Wally Pontiff Classic was played in New Orleans where Nicholas Pontiff , Wally's brother, played his Pontiff Classic game in a LSU TIGER Uniform.

Nicholas Pontiff Last night

LSU beat University of Louisiana Lafayette last night in a pretty good game. See Three two-run homers propel LSU to victory, and Pontiff plays role ... from the Picayune, Homers Send Baseball to Win Over ULL at Zephyr, 10-6 from LSU Sportsnet , and Bertuccini, HRs lift LSU from the Advocate.
This was a 2007 article Nicholas did that told about discovering his brother dead and all the family went through I still like to read around this time. See Brotherly Love
