Former LSU baseball player and current Colorado Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu was named the 2014 National League Gold Glove Award recipient at second base on Tuesday.

LeMahieu, who helped lead the Tigers to a 2009 College World Series title is the first ever former LSU player to win a Gold Glove Award. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

LeMahieu, a native of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., played at LSU in 2008 and 2009 and signed with the Chicago Cubs after he was selected in the second round of the ’09 MLB Draft. LeMahieu hit .344 during his college career with 24 doubles, five triples, 11 homers and 87 RBI. He was named to the 2009 College World Series All-Tournament team, batting .444 during the Tigers’ drive to the national championship.

The defensive work of LeMahieu was also recognized by the Rockies in 2013, when he was awarded with the team’s Defensive Player of the Year award. LeMahieu, 26, became a regular on highlight reels this season. He edged the Reds' Brandon Phillips, who won four of the previous six Gold Gloves at second base.
