Retiring LSU Announcer Jim Hawthorne Calls His Final Play At Alex Box Stadium [VIDEO]
If you are a big LSU sports fan and have ever listen to a football, basketball or baseball game over the radio, then you are familiar with the voice of the LSU Tigers Jim Hawthorne. A few months ago it was announced that Jim has decided to retire from the microphone after the 2015-2016 basketball season.
Well last night, Jim called his final game at Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge. I know your thinking last game?

LSU will end their season in Omaha by either winning the World Series or losing out in the tournament.
