The 2015 LSU Tigers baseball team represent Louisiana State University during the 2015 NCAA Division I baseball season. The Tigers play their home games at Alex Box Stadium as a member of the Southeastern Conference. They are led by head coach Paul Mainieri, in his 9th season at LSU.

At the end of the regular season, junior shortstop Alex Bregman was selected by the Houston Astros as the second pick of the 2015 MLB Draft. Bregman was the fifth LSU Tiger to be drafted in the first round in seven years, the highest-drafted position player in LSU's history, and the second-highest overall behind pitcher Ben McDonald (1989).[1][2]

Previous Season

In 2014, the Tigers finished the season 2nd in the SEC's Western Division with a record of 46-16-1, 17-11-1 in conference play. They qualified for the 2014 Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament and defeated Florida in the final, 2-0, to win their 11th SEC Tournament title. They qualified for the 2014 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament as the SEC's automatic bid, and were selected as the #8 overall national seed. The Tigers were selected as hosts of the Baton Rouge regional, which included Houston, Bryant, and Southeastern Louisiana. The Tigers won their first two games of the regional, defeating Southeastern Louisiana, 8-4, and Houston, 5-1. In the regional final, LSU was again matched up with Houston. In the first game of the regional final, the Cougars defeated the Tigers, 5-4, in 11 innings. The Cougars went on to win game two, 12-2, eliminating LSU and advancing to the Austin Super Regional, where they lost in two games to Texas.
