What a classy move by the LSU pitcher. He finished 12-4 with a 3.17 ERA in 113 2/3 innings pitched this season.
No matter where his baseball career takes him, he’s likely to remember this season for a long time. The Tigers might have come up short for the national championship, but LSU fans will remember Poché as a winner.
