Bo McLaughlin
Lipscomb Athletics Hall of Fame
Bo played baseball for Lipscomb University from 1972-1975. Considered one of the most dominant pitchers to ever wear a Bison uniform, Bo still holds Lipscomb pitching records for the most strikeouts in a game (19), along with most innings pitched (1412/3), and games won in a season (16). During Bo's career, he had three consecutive games in which he struck out 17, 18, and 19 batters. In 1975, Bo was drafted in the first round by the Houston Astros. Besides playing for Houston, Bo also played in the major leagues with the Atlanta Braves and the Oakland Athletics. Since finishing his baseball career, Bo has directed his very successful baseball camps in Arizona. During the 1970's, Lipscomb University had one of college baseball's top programs. Fans filled Onion Dell to watch the Bison baseball team take the field and an outstanding pitcher by the name of Bo McLaughlin dominate opposing batters.
