BATON ROUGE, LA -- LSU athletic director and former baseball coach Skip Bertman has been released from the hospital. He was admitted Saturday after experiencing what was described as the early signs of a heart attack. Doctors placed a stent in one of his main arteries.
The 70-year-old Bertman is recuperating at home and, according
to a school spokesman, plans to attend LSU's NCAA tournament games
against California-Irvine next weekend.
Bertman led the Tigers' baseball team to five national titles.
His term as athletic director ends June 30th.
