BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The days of bird droppings raining down on LSU baseball fans are over.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1HdPxtk) crews are attaching netting to the bottom side of the Alex Box Stadium grandstands overhang, a four monthlong project that’s expected to keep the birds away.

Coach Paul Mainieri says construction began about two weeks ago and is scheduled to end just in time for fall practice in October.

The infield of Skip Bertman Field will be closed for the next 16 weeks as cranes and other construction equipment are used for the project. Crews will also replace the net protecting the grandstands from foul balls.
