The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is honoring the late Coach Robichaux with a new line of limited-edition merchandise.

The 36 Collection: Coach Robichaux Legacy Line includes men’s and women’s apparel, hats and other items. Each product features a commemorative logo that combines the No. 36 and the signature of longtime University of Louisiana at Lafayette head baseball coach Tony Robichaux.

The product line is a collaboration between the University and the Robichaux family.

The 36 Collection will be available throughout baseball season. Initial items include apparel, hats, wooden baseball bats and rubber bracelets. The bracelets feature “Robe-isms,” motivational phrases the coach weaved throughout his pep talks and public speaking appearances.

The 36 Collection debuted Friday, February 14 in conjunction with the home opener of the 2020 Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Baseball season.

The merchandise will be available at other Ragin' Cajun Store locations eventually online.

Robichaux died July 3, 2019. He secured more than 900 wins in his quarter-century career at UL Lafayette, the most of any coach in the baseball program’s history. His uniform number was 36 throughout his tenure with UL Lafayette.
