Jonathan Lucroy Drives Home First Run As An Angel – VIDEO
A former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun baseball standout recently drove home his first run for his new team.
Catcher Jonathan Lucroy, now a member of the Los Angeles Angels, tallied his first run batted in as a member of the organization in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Texas Rangers.
Lucroy drove home Andrelton Simmons with an infield single in the bottom half of the second inning.
A member of the UL baseball squad from 2005-2007, before being drafted by the Brewers in the third round of the 2007 amateur entry draft, Lucroy signed with the Angels as a free agent in the offseason.
A native of Eustis, Florida, Lucroy hit a .241 last season for the Oakland A's, to go along with four home runs and 51 runs batted in.
The 32-year old Lucroy has also played for the Brewers, Rangers, Rockies, and A's.
A 2016 MLB All-Star, Lucroy has compiled a .276 career average in 9 seasons, to go along with 100 homers and 510 runs batted in.
