LSU plane problem causes ''a little scary'' situation for baseball team

The LSU Baseball team had some tense moments Thursday night after a mechanical problem with the plane the team was taking to Texas.

"A little scary," Mainieri said in a text message to the student newspaper the Reveille. "We had a problem with the flaps and had to return to Baton Rouge."

Officials say the problem occurred shortly after takeoff and the plane had to land at a faster speed than pilots prefer, but no one was injured.

The team was scheduled to fly to College Station and practice in Texas for the weekend series with Texas A&M.

Instead they returned to the LSU campus to practice and decided to take a later flight.
