Will Alex Bregman be enshrined in Cooperstown some day? That's anybody's guess. His name, however, is a sure bet to be there.
Bregman's glove is one of the three artifacts that will be enshrined at the baseball hall of fame after the Houston Astros' Game 7 win in the World Series on Wednesday.
Bregman starred for the LSU baseball team from 2013-'15.
The other items sent to Cooperstown will include Justin Verlander's jersey and Charlie Morton's hat worn in the 5-1 win in Los Angeles. Morton came in the game in relief and pitched the final four innings.
The baseball hall of fame tweeted out images of the three items Thursday morning.

In his first full season of Major League Baseball, Bregman posted eye-popping numbers in the World Series: 5 runs, 7 hits, 2 home runs and 5 RBIs. Of course his most memorable moment came in Game 5 with a walk-off RBI single to spur the Astros to a 13-12 win in 10 innings.
How did the biggest hit of his life feel, even after his fellow Astros mugged him and nearly ripped his jersey?
“Pure joy,” said Bregman, just 23. “It's an unbelievable moment. You dream about it as a little kid. To be living a dream, one win away from the World Series, is really special.”
