Alsup solid in early professional appearance
Ben Alsup is off to a good start in his professional baseball career.
It’s so far, so good for the former Ruston High two-sport standout who played for the LSU diamond squad the past four seasons.
Alsup, drafted in round No. 18 of the recent Major League Baseball draft, had five strikeouts and didn’t walk a batter during four innings of a recent start for the Colorado Rockies’ Tri-City (Wash.) Dust Devils’ team in Class A.
