Southeastern Conference coaches picked LSU to win the SEC West by a wide margin, and the Tigers got four players on the two All-SEC teams.

Shortstop Alex Bregman and outfielder Andrew Stevenson made the All-SEC first team, while catcher Kade Scivicque and outfielder Mark Laird were on the second team. LSU’s four players on the two teams were tied with Florida for second-most.

Vanderbilt, the consensus No. 1 team in the nation and defending national champion, got five players on the teams. The Commodores were picked to win the conference title, receiving 11 of the 13 votes (coaches cannot vote for their own team).

LSU was picked to win the SEC West, getting all but one first-place vote. The Tigers garnered 91 points in the SEC West predicted order of finish. Alabama was second with 62.

The Tigers received one vote for the overall SEC championship.

LSU, ranked in the top five in four preseason polls, begins the season hosting Kansas in a three-game series this weekend. First pitch Friday is set for 7 p.m.
