Aaron Nola is in elite company as only the sixth LSU Tiger to win a national player or pitcher of the year award.

He will receive the award for his tremendous pitching career from the College Baseball Hall of Fame. It will be a sweet recognition, even if he has already moved into the pros, pitching for a Philadelphia Phillies’ farm team.

LSU fans were thrilled with his talent from his freshman year. He will always be a fan favorite in his home town and home state.
