    This is one of the pillars of Cajun baseball.
    Irreplaceable. Very sad to hear.

    I hope he got to sit in the ballpark at least once.

    Saddened to hear about this. Those peanuts are the best concession item.

    His peanuts are truly a Ragin Cajuns sporting event staple. May he RIP and serve some of the best peanuts in the world to the good Lord.

    In another thread, we are discussing the Cajun Field survey. My answer to the question about the best concession item was "Mr. Vic's Peanuts".

    I think he sat only in spirit. Don't remember the date of his departure from behind the glass enclosure of peanuts, but I think construction of the ball park started after he fell ill.......I talked to his, I believe nephew, the last few weeks he knew nobody and did not speak.....I started to go and visit him but though that remembering him as he was at the Tigue would be better.....

  8. UL Baseball Remembering the Tigue's Vic The Peanut Man

    As 93-year-old World War II and Korean War veteran Vic Kilchrist (recalled), he bought his first peanut roaster sometime in the early 1990s for $66 at a junkyard.

    It took him two years to get it working right.

    Maybe they could put a bronze statue of him in the concourse next to the peanut roaster? Would be a nice tribute.

    No offense, but who is going to pay for this bronze statue? They are not cheap and we still have to pay for a stadium, club house and coach's office.

    The people that want to, the black jack statue funding was spearheaded by a group of people who wanted to. A memorial golf tourney in Mr. Vic's name would probably do it.

    I doubt that's even on their radar... but it is something that I would think wouldn't be too
    hard to do, baseball already has a golf tourney they could start there.

    I think a plaque on the permanent dedicated peanut booth would be more appropriate. JMO

    Which is already used to fund the baseball program. These funds for the statute would have to be in addition to what is already raised.

    Yeah like sell raffle tickets dedicated to that special ificalky ...don't worry I doubt the clubhouse and stadium completion would fall a bronze statue short of getting done.

    Or a bust instead of a statue
