How about a crawfish boil at the B-Stro?! We’ve teamed up with Brewhouse Bistro to offer boiled crawfish at the Demon Baseball double header against McNeese on Saturday, May 8th.
You can purchase a discounted Game Ticket + Crawfish in advance for $30. If you already have your tickets, you can purchase Crawfish for $25 either online or at the games.

Crawfish will be served in 5 lb flats. We’ll have a tent, tables & chairs set up atop the 3rd base line near the concession stand for a comfortable place to eat and hang out! Crawfish will be available for both game of the double header, until we run out.

Go to nsudemons.com/mudbugs to order or text MUDBUGS to 41444. Crawfish will be available for purchase the concession stand on gameday as well. Fork ’em!

Southland Conference softball series don’t need much extra spice in a league that gets more competitive each season.

But the Northwestern State-Southeastern Louisiana rivalry series added a little lagniappe in 2019 in the form of the Cypress Trophy, which is awarded to the winners each season.

Southeastern alumni Dickie Whitson and Cameron Barr created the River Bell (SLU-Nicholls football) and the Pontchartrain Bowl (SLU-UNO baseball), and the pair fostered the idea behind the Cypress Trophy between SLU and NSU softball.

SLU visits NSU May 7-8 with the winner being the second to engrave their name on the trophy. NSU won the trophy in 2019. the 2020 season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

“We want these players to have a trophy that their proud of and that they can celebrate with and have fun with,” Barr said. “We wanted to add a female sport to the mix, and softball is one of the most popular sports around, and it’s fun to watch.

“It’s not a (Southland Conference championship), but we wanted to add a little something extra to this series that players can look forward to.”

The NSU Softball Team will also honor its seniors after Saturday’s game. For tickets or more information on this weekend’s series, visit www.nsutickets.com or call 318-357-4268.
