|Coleman joins Bowden in Burlington|
LSU senior right-hander Louis Coleman signed a contract Monday with the Kansas City Royals and has been assigned to the Burlington (Iowa) Bees, the club's Class A affiliate in the Midwest League.
Coleman will be joining Vidalia native Barry Bowden at Burlington.
Bowden is 2-2 with a 2.75 earned run average and leads the team with six saves.
Coleman, a 2009 first-team all-American and the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Year, helped lead the Tigers to the College World Series title by posting a 14-2 mark and a 2.93 ERA in 129 innings. He recorded 142 strikeouts and just 23 walks while limiting opponents to a .224 batting average.
Coleman was 4-0 with a 2.79 ERA in seven postseason appearances (five starts).
He struck out the side in the ninth inning to seal an 11-4 win over Texas in Game 3 of the CWS Championship Finals, clinching LSU's sixth national championship since 1991.
Coleman was the Royals' fifth-round draft selection last month.
He was chosen in the 14th round by the Washington Nationals in the 2008 MLB Draft, but elected to return to LSU for his senior season.
"Louis' return was certainly a major factor in our drive to the national championship," said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. "It's difficult to put into words how valuable he was to our program. He is a great pitcher, but he is also a young man of tremendous faith and character. We will miss him very much, and I know he is destined for future success."
Coleman, who received his LSU degree in May in agricultural business, was also a member of the 2009 SEC Community Service Team. He led the squad's involvement in several causes, including efforts to prevent child obesity, to promote awareness of Down Syndrome and to raise funds for research on Lou Gehrig's disease.
Coleman completed his LSU career with a 29-12 record, tying him with Ben McDonald for eighth place on the all-time school wins list. He is also No. 8 among LSU's all-time strikeouts leaders with 303 career Ks.
