    Y'all keep putting LSU players in the HOF. Even at the bookstore today I saw a Tahoe with 2 big LSU stickers on the back panels. LSU is taking over Lubbock.

    Congrats on the Class of 2010

    Eddy Furniss, who played at LSU from 1995 to 1998, won the Dick Howser Trophy in 1998. He finished his career in Baton Rouge as the Southeastern Conference leader in hits, home runs, RBIs, doubles and total bases. In addition to multiple All-America honors, Furniss also was recognized multiple times as an Academic All-American for his work in the classroom. He was a fourth-round draft pick by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1998.

    furniss never wanted to play ball professionally as a career. he just used it as an avenue to pursue his real dream.

    his dad was a doctor and so is he. he completed medical school and both share a family practice in texas.

    his dad sat by us many games when he played. great people. some of the very best you'll ever meet and eddie was the same way. one hell of a family.

    and yes he still holds most of the records.
