School record three Tigers named All-American

Three LSU baseball players received first-team all-America recognition Wednesday, marking the first time in school history the Tigers have produced three first-team all-Americans in one season.

 

Senior first baseman Mason Katz was named a first-team all-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), sophomore pitcher Aaron Nola was named to first-team all-America squads by both the NCBWA and by Baseball America magazine, and freshman shortstop Alex Bregman earned first-team all-America accolades from Baseball America.

 

LSU and Cal State Fullerton were the only schools to place multiple players on the Baseball America first-team squad.

 

Katz, a native of Harahan, La., is hitting .366 with 14 doubles, two triples, 15 homers and 68 RBI, and he received first-team all-SEC recognition from the league coaches last month.

 

Nola, a right-hander from Baton Rouge, La., is 12-0 this season with a 1.68 ERA, and he has recorded 117 strikeouts in 118 innings. He was voted SEC Pitcher of the Year last month by the league coaches.

 

Bregman, a product of Albuquerque, N.M., has been named National Freshman Player of the Year by both Collegiate Baseball newspaper and by the NCBWA. He is hitting a team-best .380 this season with 18 doubles, seven triples, six homers, 52 RBI and 16 stolen bases.

 

LSU has produced 26 first-team all-Americans in its history, including eight during the seven-season tenure of coach Paul Mainieri.
