Lots of crooked numbers in that line score. Keep in mind - LSU was in first place in the league at the time and it was the final weekend of the regular season. LSU went on to defeat us for the national title in the final game in Omaha, but I bet this game still stings them. Damn, I miss those juiced up bats.
LSU 2 (44-11,21-7 SEC)
Alabama Crimson Tide 28 (44-10,20-8 SEC)

Made the loss in Omaha that much tougher.
Almost depressing looking back at the baseball program in the 1990s. We were a machine.
Side note : The 1997 College World Series had (1) Alabama, (2) LSU,, (6) Auburn, (8) Mississippi State (seedings). 4 of the 8 CWS participants were from the SEC West.

Yeah - really, the loss of Roberto Vaz before the trip to Omaha was the killer.
He was the best player in college baseball that year. Broke his ankle because he slipped on a baseball in BP. Great power hitter and pitcher. Losing a two-way player like that made it nearly impossible, and losing early and having to fight our way back out of the loser's bracket the entire series was tough luck too.
No doubt in my mind with the extra arm we win it all that year. That was Wells' best team (followed closely by the 1999 squad.)
We had about 3 two-out errors that ended up giving them all their runs too... killed us
Not certain, but almost sure I was at this game...I was only nine or ten and remeber my grandad taking me to a lot of games that year, several of them LSU. Man those games were fun to watch.
I remember listening on the radio. We were just shelling them with hits. And they had a great team - which is what made it so astounding. One thing to beat up on a cellar dweller, but another to hand arguably the best LSU team of all time their worst beating in program history.
It would be like someone beating Alabama in football by 60 points this year.
Might take us a month to score 28 runs now.
Yep, don't know that it will ever be like that again. Although the offensive production is a lot better this year than last. This team has a lot of potential.
Yeah, those were fun times. I had season tickets back then. Watching that team take batting practice was worth the price of a ticket itself. Long ball city.
Omaha-1999-beat Rice bottom of the 9th game winning hit off there ace. 1998--Jeff Drag hits late inning homerun in SEC tournament-----1999--swept LSU at home to go to Omaha.
I was at that Florida game where Dragg hit the bomb in extra innings to upset Florida. One of the best single moments in Bama history for sure. So improbable.
That 1999 team was special (I know you think so, too. Ha.) We whipped LSU in the Super Regional to end their season. Pure domination.
That UAB game that year where we hung 30 on them was nice, too.
was real happy for Dragg, he was one of my roomates and didnt play much and was great moment for him. The UAB game was crazy, I think all starting 9 had a HR and many of us had 2
I remember that game when Bama set an NCAA record for home runs in a game by one team with 13. Bama will be lucky to reach 13 all season now with the bats like they are.
Let's go back in time a little. 1983. Regional in Tallahassee. UA completes 3-game sweep through this region against perennial powerhouses FSU and the "U" by defeating the defending national champion, Miami, 11-9 and breaking a 33-yr CWS drought. This put UA back on the national baseball scene. For those too young to remember, we fell just shy of the national title after losing to Roger Clemens and Texas.

One of my favorite moments of my years in Tuscaloosa was when Alex Avila hit the home run to tie up North Carolina with 2 outs in the Top of the 9th in the Super Regional. Of course it ended badly, but that was such a rush. Standing room only crowd, everybody out in right field (Mal Moore hung out with us (the students) almost the entire game). Wish it could get back to that.
I was there that beautiful Saturday afternoon. I had season tix in those great days of Bama Baseball. I recall the 'I believe I got a Tiger By the Tail' old song cranking up somewhere around the 6th or 7th inning.Watching the LSU fans' long faces that day was PRICELESS!!!
We need superfan or the fat guy that would dance to come back.
