New Southern Pigskin Article; Baseball Notes


I've got a new piece up on Southern Pigskin regarding the hot start in recruiting for both LSU and Alabama. 

You can check it out here.


LSU defeated Tulane on Wednesday night by a score of 10-4.   Mikie Mahtook was the star of the game, going 3 for 4 with 1 HR and 3 RBI.   Tyler Hanover also had three hits, and every Tiger starter had at least one hit on the night. 

Joey Bourgeois started for the Tigers  and gave up three runs in his only inning of work.  LSU's pitching then settled down and only gave up one run for the rest of the night. 

LSU is now 27-6 and faces Alabama this weekend. 


In a bit of baseball recruiting news, Delino Deshields Jr. has committed to play baseball at LSU.   Deshields is the son of former Major Leaguer Delino Deshields. 

Deshields is a center fielder and is one of the top prospects in the nation. 

Deshields is expected to be drafted this June, and he's very open to going pro rather than attending college.  But if he comes to LSU, the Tigers may add a key contributor to next year's team.  Deshields is also a standout football player though he isn't expected to play football in college.
