College Baseball Hall of Fame

A first baseman from Nacogdoches, Texas, Eddy Furniss culminated a sterling four-year LSU career by receiving the 1998 Dick Howser Trophy as college baseball's most outstanding player. Furniss, a 2007 inductee into the LSU Athletics Hall of Fame, finished his career as the SEC's all-time leader in hits (352), home runs (80), RBI (308), doubles (87) and total bases (689). He also finished his career No. 1 on the LSU career list for slugging percentage (.727) and walks (191). In NCAA annals, Furniss finished his career No. 3 in total bases, No. 4 in home runs and doubles, and No. 5 in RBI. Furniss — who posted a .371 lifetime batting average — hit .403 in 1998 with 27 doubles, three triples, 28 homers, 85 runs and 76 RBI, earning first team All-American and All-SEC honors. A member of both the 1996 and 1997 national championship teams, he was also a second-team Academic All-American with a 3.5 GPA in Zoology. He was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in July 2010.
