BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Do you remember where you were at when Warren Morris hit the ninth-inning home run that gave LSU the 1996 National Championship with a 9-8 victory over Miami? 

ESPN Films’ SEC Storied series, "The Walk Off," will look back at that great moment in LSU baseball history:  

Twenty years ago he became the only man ever to hit a walk off home run to end the College World Series—and it was his only home run of the season. Warren Morris, just recovering from a broken bone in his right hand, could barely swing a bat. 

With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, LSU down by one and a man on base, one of the smallest players on either roster stepped up, his team in need of a big hit. Morris delivered arguably the biggest moment in college baseball history. 

"The Walk Off" will air on Thursday, June 30, at 8 p.m. on the SEC Network.
