The LSU Tigers were playing in the NCAA Super Regionals over the weekend and LSU shortstop Jordan Thompson made one of the most ridiculous plays you'll see a college shortstop make.

In the program's history, the LSU Tigers have produced some pretty incredible shortstops. Guys like Brandon Larson, Austin Nola, DJ Lemahieu, Alex Bregman, Ryan Theriot, and many more. LSU Has produced plenty of Major League shortstops, while some have moved to other positions in their transition to the big leagues.

On Sunday, LSU and Kentucky were underway in the bottom of the second inning when LSU shortstop Jordan Thompson made an unreal play to gun down a runner running down the first base line.

Thompson took a ton of flack during the offseason after leading the Tigers in errors in the 2021-2022 season with eighteen errors and a .894 fielding percentage. Before the season, Head Coach Jay Johnson repeated to the media that he trusted the likings of Jordan Thompson at short. Much to the credit of both Thompson and Coach Johnson, Jordan has improved MUCH at shortstop in 2023.

This season, Jordan has committed just 12 errors in 2023. He has over 170 chances for a putout this year. None of the plays are better than the one vs Kentucky on Sunday. The play from Jordan Thompson came in at Number Two on the Sports Center Top 10 Plays on Monday Morning.

Thompson was able to help the Tigers advance to their 19th College World Series appearance. The CWS is slated to begin on Friday.
