Did You Know?

Did you know...Former Lions pitcher Kirk Bullinger was the 1992 Trans America Athletic Conference (now the Atlantic Sun) Tournament MVP.

Bullinger pitched one of the greatest games in program history, leading the Lions to a 11-0 win over Florida International in the opening round of the TAAC tournament.  The future major leaguer pitched a complete game shutout, surrendering only one hit and recording 10 strikeouts.  SLU would go on to win the 1992 TAAC championship and capture a berth in the Tuscon, AZ Regional.

His one hit performance is still a conference tournament record.
