Alex Box Stadium, sometimes pronounced as "Elec" or "Alec" Box, is a baseball stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It is the home field of the Louisiana State University Tigers college baseball team. The stadium (and its predecessor) were named for Simeon Alex Box, an LSU letterman (1942) who was killed in North Africa during World War II. A design team of Grace & Herbert, DLR Group, and Jeffrey L. Bruce & Company designed the new Alex Box Stadium which opened during the 2009 season. New Alex Box was slated to hold 8,500 fans but the addition of left field seating from the old Alex Box brought capacity up to 9,200. Additional seating in right field is expected to be added before the 2010 season, bringing the total capacity to well over 10,000. The first game of the new stadium was played February 20, 2009. LSU beat Villanova by a final score of 12”“3 in front of a crowd totaling 9,054. Alex Box was named the American Sports Builders Association Facility of the Year 2009.
