LSU's powerful right fielder and ace pitcher brought home All-America honors Thursday.
Baseball America named Greg Deichmann a first team All-American and tabbed Alex Lange as a second-teamer. LSU was one of nine schools with two or more players to earn the prestigious recognition.
Deichmann anchored the middle of LSU's lineup all season, clubbing a team-best 19 home runs while hitting .322 and driving in 69 runs. Deichmann also drew a team-high 47 walks this season — 15 of which were intentional.
He became the 10th LSU player under coach Paul Mainieri to earn first-team All-America honors, and the first since Lange and Kade Scivicque earned first-team honors in 2015.
Lange enters the super regional round as the Southeastern Conference leader in strikeouts, having racked up 124 in 103.1 innings. He has gone 9-5 with a 2.87 ERA this season, firing four complete games.
Lange and Deichmann were also named first-team All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball newspaper last week, along with shortstop Kramer Robertson.
Louisiana-Lafayette reliever Wyatt Marks also earned first-team recognition as a relief pitcher. Marks struck out a whopping 100 batters in just 59.1 innings this season, leading the nation by a healthy margin in strikeouts per nine innings (15.17).
Louisiana Tech pitcher Nate Harris rounded out the state's representatives on the All-America teams. Harris was named a third-team All American after going 9-1 with three complete games and eight saves this season.
