A home run for LSU’s Bryce Jordan this weekend turned out to be unlucky for one young Tigers’ fan, but the junior infielder made good on the harm he inadvertently caused.
Jordan hit a long home run ball into the left-field stands against Notre Dame on Friday, but the ball struck and injured a little girl. She was hospitalized but is now doing OK.
On Sunday, Jordan visited the girl who left with the injury. Here’s a photo, courtesy of Jordan’s mother:

She’s wearing an LSU baseball shirt, so it looks like there’s no hard feelings here.
This was a nice gesture by Jordan, who’s off to a great start to his junior campaign with the Tigers. He missed all of last season with a knee injury, but was an All-SEC DH in 2016.
For the curious, here’s the home run that caused the meet-up to happen:
Would you look at that moonshot by @brycejordan200! What a beaut! LSU is within two in the bottom of the sixth at The Box!

Thanks in part to that grand slam, the Tigers took the opening game the series against the Fighting Irish. However, Notre Dame rebounded to take the final two games of the series.
LSU baseball will be in action again on Wednesday against New Orleans. Next weekend the Tigers face Texas at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge.
