PHOTO OF THE DAY: The 1997 LSU baseball team, behind All-American shortstop Brandon Larson, set a record for regular season wins with 45 before going on to win the CWS title. Last night, with an 11-2 victory over UNO, the 2013 Tigers broke that record, improving 46-7 for the school’s best record in history.
I’ll never forget watching Brandon Larson play. I grew up playing shortstop and idolized him. Never had his pop though, but not many did. 40 homers in a single season? Even with the bats back then, that’s crazy.
