Softball Cajuns prepare for first super regional at home

"We seat over 1,700 people at Lamson park, and we expect to have over 2,000 people come through this gate," says Assistant Director of Marketing and Promotions Eric Moran.

Ready or not the softball Ragin' Cajuns will take the national stage once again in hopes of punching their ticket to the College World Series.

"I think sometimes they have to pinch themselves to realize that really they're living their dream," says softball head coach Michael Lotief.

The one of a kind Cajun fans will share some of that spotlight too.

"When you travel throughout the country and you play in other venues, that's not there, you take it for granted that that's a part of the cajun fabric."

"When people come to visit the Ragin' Cajuns they go away with a good feeling because they've treated nicely, they've had some good food, met some great people," says Moran.

That experience is what helps keep the Ragin' Cajun family growing.

"People hear about the name Ragin' Cajun and they want to know what it is, they check out the university and we'll see our enrollment numbers go up this next year."

While it's ultimately up to the players to keep their season alive, the fans will be there every step of the way.

"This program has been built by the fans and the love affair between the fans and these players and that's what makes it special," says Lotief.

The Lady Ragin' Cajuns will host Arizona in game one at Lamson Park Saturday at 8 pm. Tickets are available through the Cajundome box office. Click here for more information about the super regional.
