LSU is a national champion for a 7th time in baseball as the Fighting Tigers roared back after losing by 20 runs on Sunday to beat Florida 18-4 on Monday to win the College World Series. LSU designated hitter Cade Beloso believes another dynasty is about to happen, because of Coach Jay Johnson.

“There’s not a person that cares more about LSU, cares more about the game of baseball, more about people than this guy sitting to the right of me, this program is so lucky to have Coach Jay Johnson, they are going to have to build a new intimidator for what he’s about to do, he’s coming, he’s not stopping, I can promise that” said Beloso.

This 2023 team was filled with great players and led by Paul Skenes, who was named the Most Outstanding Player of the College World Series, and center fielder Dylan Crews. The Golden Spikes Award winner had four hits in his final game as a Tiger.

“I felt like almost every box was checked off except for that national championship box, to finally say I”m a national champion is the greatest feeling in the world,” said Crews.

Jay Johnson wins a national championship in his second season as head coach. Johnson credits the players for doing the hard work.

“National championship team, I think the most gratifying part of it is that they were national champion people every single day of this thing,” said Johnson.

On Monday night, LSU fell behind by two runs in the first inning but exploded for six runs in the second inning. Jordan Thompson, who had just one hit in the College World Series coming into the final game, got the scoring started with an RBI single. Thompson heard the love from the fans who were in his corner when he came up to the plate.

“Yeah I did hear them, I though that was pretty cool, we just wanted to leave it all on the line, everyone just came out here ready to go,” said Thompson.
