Former LSU Tiger talks World Series Championship

Geaux Nation

Outfielder Andrew Stevenson joined the list of former LSU Tigers who have won World Series championships when the Washington Nationals posted a 6-2 win over the Houston Astros Wednesday night in Minute Maid Park. 

Stevenson, a product of Youngsville, La., played in 31 games this season for the Nationals, batting .367 (11-for-30) with one double, one triple and five runs scored. 

He scored the tying run on October 1 as a pinch runner during a three-run, eighth-inning rally, as the Nationals erased a 3-1 deficit and posted a 4-3 Wild Card game victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Stevenson, the Nationals’ second-round draft choice in 2015, played at LSU from 2013 through 2015, and he helped lead the Tigers to College World Series appearances in 2013  and 2015, and the SEC championship in 2015.

Stevenson, who started in 154 games in center field during his college career, earned 2015 first-team All-SEC and third-team All-America honors at LSU, and he was a two-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

Following is the list of the 15 former LSU players who became World Series champions:
