Luis Alicea showed FSU baseball coaches right off the bat that he would be a great one setting a school record with a 27-game hitting streak and leading the team in triples in 1984 winning a spot on Baseball America’s Freshman All-American team. He hit .325 and stole 26 bases as a sophomore and in 1986 earned All-America honors after batting .392 and driving in 73 rbi as a junior. He was named the South II Regional Most Valuable Player that season and led FSU to the 1986 College World Series national championship game earning CWS All-Tournament team honors. He was the first player selected by St. Louis in the 1986 draft and played 13 seasons in the majors.
