Hunter Feduccia played so well back in the fall that Mason Doolittle, his primary competition for the starting catcher job, left the program over winter break to pursue more playing time elsewhere.
That feels like an awfully long time ago at this point, but LSU is doing all it can to help get Feduccia back to playing at that level again.
Feduccia is mired in the midst of a brutal slump at the plate in conjunction with costly mistakes and pretty obvious regression behind it. The sharp downturn in offensive production and defensive reliability has been befuddling for a team that’s short on quality options behind him.
“We’re just going to keep working with him,” LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. “Listen, he’s the best we’ve got.”
