Baseball America has released its preseason All-American list and two LSU Tigers have made the list. Third baseman Tommy White and right-handed pitcher Thatcher Hurd are the two Tigers that made the list.
White and Hurd are two of the Tigers star players who are returning from last year. White, a junior from St. Pete Beach, Florida, finished last season with a .374 batting average with 24 doubles, 24 homers and 105 RBI. His biggest highlight last year was hitting a walk-off homer against Wake Forest in Omaha during the College World Series.
Hurd, a junior from Manhattan Beach, California, finished last season with an 8-2 record and a 5.68 ERA. His ERA is a little elevated due to the struggles he had at the start of the 2023 season. He ended the year on a high note as he pitched the series-clinching game against Florida in the College World Series.
LSU starts its 2024 season next Friday against VMI.
