Head Coach Paul Mainieri on Cade Beloso:
"I know LSU fans have been waiting for that left-handed throwing, left-handed hitting first baseman with power. Well, Cade Beloso has finally arrived at LSU. This man can flat out hit, and hit with power. He was named the Louisiana Player of the Year after leading his John Curtis High School team to the state championship; and he has continued from there by tearing up the collegiate summer league prior to his enrollment at LSU. A powerfully-built slugger, he also has great bat control and rarely strikes out. Obviously, all new college hitters must prove they can hit the caliber of pitching they will see in the SEC. However, I have a feeling Cade Beloso will hit in any league he plays."
