From LSU Baseball star Alex Bregman has shown the Tigers a lot of love over the last week.

It started on Tuesday night in Houston. The Houston Astros third baseman made the short journey to NRG Stadium to catch LSU take on Kansas State in the Texas Bowl.

Bregman spent the evening tailgating with LSU fans outside the stadium. He also spent some time with new Tigers head coach Brian Kelly.

Unfortunately for Bregman and LSU, the Tigers were unable to get a win against Kansas State.

The LSU fun didn’t stop there. On Thursday night, Bregman checked out the LSU women’s basketball game in Baton Rouge (which was a loss to South Carolina).

Bregman is one of the most successful MLB players to ever come out of LSU’s storied baseball program. It’s great to see him showing the Tigers some love on a regular basis.

Alex Bregman is looking to get back on track in 2022

Bregman will be looking to return to All-Star form in 2022.

This past season, Bregman missed 71 games due to a quad injury.

Despite the injury, Bregman still managed to hit .270 with 12 home runs and 55 RBIs. Decent numbers for playing in only 91 games, but still below what we’ve grown to expect from Bregman.

One interesting thing to watch with Bregman is whether or not he’ll play more shortstop in 2022.

Bregman has primarily been a third baseman with the Astros, but his natural position is shortstop — which is where he played while he was at LSU.

The New Mexico native has played at shortstop on various occasions for the Astros when Carlos Correa was on the injured list. With Correa likely signing elsewhere this offseason (whenever the MLB lockout ends), it’s possible that Bregman could see more time at shortstop for the Astros.

Next. The best thing Brad Davis said after bowl game loss to Kansas State. dark

Though regardless of where he plays, Bregman is still one of the top hitters and fielders in the game. If he’s fully healthy in 2022, he’s going to be a blast to watch every night.
