Former LSU baseball star visits Liam Dunn in hospital
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Former LSU baseball star and current third baseman for the Houston Astros, Alex Bregman, visited Liam Dunn in the hospital on Sunday, January 22.
Dunn is a graduate of Brusly High and was a baseball player at the school. He is the survivor of a deadly crash on New Year’s Eve in Brusly.
Liam’s younger sister, Maggie Dunn, and her friend, Caroline Gill, were killed in the crash when an Addis police officer slammed into their vehicle while he was chasing a suspect during a multi-parish police pursuit.
