It was announced Friday that the LSU Hall of Fame Committee has unanimously approved the retirement of the jersey of all-America second baseman Todd Walker who played for the Tigers 1992-1994 and was a part of the 1993 National Championship team.

The jersey will be retired in a ceremony prior to a game during the 2017 baseball season. Per LSUSports.net:

quote:

“Todd Walker epitomizes the values that we promote at LSU,” said LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva. “He is in the College Baseball Hall of Fame, and his exploits as one of the greatest hitters in the history of the game are well-documented. What is even more impressive is his commitment to education, as he completed his LSU degree requirements while he was an active Major League player. He generously donates his time and energy to charitable causes, and he is a tremendous ambassador for our university. We look forward to having his jersey number take its place among those of LSU legends.”

Walker was one of the greatest hitters in SEC history, excelling for three seasons (1992-94) at LSU. A two-time first-team All-American, he led the Tigers to the national championship in 1993, earning the College World Series Most Outstanding Player award. He was voted in 1996 as the second baseman on the all-time College World Series team by the Omaha World-Herald, and he was named to the CWS Legends Team in 2010.

Thank goodness!! He was simply "The Best". What a player, what a representative of the Tiger Nation and what a role model for generations to come.

Nananananananananana BATMAN!!! I still remember a ball he hit disappearing into the sky as it went over the right field lights. It was like he sent it into outer space. Hell of a player. Well deserved honor.
