LSU head coach Paul Mainieri made a surprise visit to a youth baseball camp in Baton Rouge aimed at helping children affected by the recent flood.

“When teammates need help, we reach out. You don’t even think about it, you just do it,” said Mainieri. “My wife lost her home in Hurricane Camille in 1969…these youngsters are scarred for life.

“That’s what life does, it throws you some curve balls,” Mainieri continued. You have to rise above the challenges that are presented to you.”

The Cypress Mounds Baseball Summer Camp runs through the rest of the week, but the camp held a free registration for those affected by the floods over the past couple of weeks.
