LSU Athletics Offers Tips to Super Regional Baseball Fans to Enhance Their Game Day Experience

BATON ROUGE, La. – With temperatures expected to reach the 90s this weekend, the LSU athletic department is advising Super Regional baseball fans to take extra precautions in dealing with the heat for the games at Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

While in the stadium, fans are advised to use water fountains and cools zones, which are tents with oscillating fans set up in right field and left field.

Fans are asked to be aware of their own health and that of those around them. LSU encourages everyone to contact an event staff member or a law enforcement officer if someone is not feeling well.

Below are helpful tips to consider when tailgating during the day and after entering the stadium:

PRE-hydrate the night before with water and/or electrolyte beverage such as PowerAde
It’s important to arrive to campus already hydrated. Once the day starts, it is hard to catch up if you already on the verge of dehydration.

Don’t skip Breakfast
Get your day started right with a wholesome breakfast consisting of fruit, whole grain, and lean protein (i.e. scrambled eggs on whole wheat toast with a side of fresh fruit). Eating breakfast will prevent feelings of light-headedness, faint, dizziness, and low blood sugar.

Continue to hydrate throughout the day with water and/or electrolyte beverage such as PowerAde
The weather is usually hot and humid, so it is easy to become dehydrated as the day goes on. If you are walking around visiting other Tiger Tailgates or just sitting around your own tailgate, continually sip on water to keep your body hydrated.

Do not drink alcoholic beverages on an empty stomach – and consume responsibly
Drinking alcohol on an empty stomach causes rapid gastric emptying, meaning that the alcohol hits your bloodstream faster and in greater concentration. This can lead to faster intoxication; severe dehydration; and an unpleasant LSU game day experience.

Choose foods with high water content
Virtually, all foods contain water, but eating foods with high water content is one of the easiest ways to improve the hydration value of your meals. Food with high water content: Fruits, Vegetables, Rice, Soups/Gumbo, Baked/Grilled Meats and Fish, Potatoes.

Be sure to stay hydrated during the game
Even though hydration may be the last thing on your mind while watching the Tigers play, it is important to continue to hydrate during the game. Before the first pitch, grab a large cup or bottle of water to sip on throughout the game. If needed, grab another at half-time.
