Today, college baseball enjoys unprecedented popularity throughout the nation in large part due to Bertman's unrelenting commitment to greatness. LSU has led the nation in attendance in every season since 1996, averaging nearly 11,000 tickets sold per game.
Bertman also served as Director of Athletics at LSU from 2001-08, leading one of the greatest periods of facility growth and athletic accomplishments in the history of the institution. He supervised a highly successful 20-sport program during a period that featured football national championships in 2003 and 2007.
Upon his retirement as baseball coach in 2001, his No. 15 jersey was retired at LSU, and the street in front of the original Alex Box Stadium was re-named Skip Bertman Drive. The playing surface at the new, state-of-the-art Alex Box Stadium, which opened in 2009, was named "Skip Bertman Field" in 2013.
He became a pillar of the Baton Rouge community, serving on numerous philanthropic organizations such as United Way, Cancer Services and the Alzheimer's Association and he was honored by organizations like the Arthritis Fou of America and the Anti-Defamation League.Throughout his amazing career, Bertman benefited support of a loving family that included his wife, Sandy and their daughters Jan, Jodi, Lisa and Lori.
