  • Name: Lucas Laster
  • High School: Columbia State (TN) Community College
  • Classification: Junior
  • Position: Pitcher
  • HT-WT: 6-foot-1, 175
  • Bats/Throws: R/L



    What will MSU fans see when they see you pitch during the fall and the spring?
    "I'm a lefthander who likes to mix up locations and move the ball around, mainly with my fastball. I throw the off-speed mainly to keep them off-balance. But mostly I try to move around with my fastball as much as I can."

    Obviously, MSU pitching coach Butch Thompson is a great pitching coach. You have found out first-hand how good he is, haven't you? He's worked with you on several things, such as improving your changeup.
    "Absolutely. I've been struggling with it since I first threw it. It's a pitch that hasn't been my best pitch, really ever. He said let's try to find something more comfortable. He changed my grip and told me to just play catch with it. He told me that he felt that I was trying to do too much. (Now) it just felt a lot more natural that what I have been doing the past 15 years that I have been pitching."

    And that's just happened, hasn't it?
    "It just happened. I have been working forever with a grip that I thought was comfortable. He didn't like it (because) I was very inconsistent with it. He said try this, and it just came natural."

    All those years you have been throwing a changeup that wasn't that good and he fixes it immediately.
    "Immediately."

    Have there been any other changes that he has made with you or is he happy with the other things you are doing on the mound?
    "He's pretty happy with everything. He's taught me to take my head down to the mitt to try and lower my fastball and get more ground balls. He also made an adjustment when I go to my armside. I started throwing a one-seam fastball. It's given me a lot more sink. Instead of fighting to get over to my armside it's given me another grip that allows the ball and grip to do the work."

    Was it difficult to learn the one-seam?
    "It was another thing that felt a lot more natural."

    What other schools did you consider in addition to Mississippi State?
    "There were a couple of schools in Tennessee close to where I lived, MTSU and Lipscomb, that offered me. It had always been my dream to play SEC ball and I had interest from a few SEC teams, teams like Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Ole Miss. There were a few others that showed a little interest but those were the ones that showed more interest. Mississippi State was the first to offer. And they were the first visit that I took as far as SEC schools. I came down here and fell in love with the place, fell in love with the coaches. I really, really liked what I heard from them and decided that I didn't want to wait for any other schools."

    Was Butch Thompson your primary recruiter?
    "Yes sir."

    What do you like about him?
    "He is the best pitching coach in America. Like I said, he's made small adjustments with me that helped me immediately. That's what I came for."

    Behind you are two trophies, an SEC Tournament championship and a national finalist trophy. Those probably affirm why you chose Mississippi State.
    "Yes sir, it's pretty exciting. I would love to get back (to Omaha)."

    Now that you are here at State, has it been everything that you expected or more than you expected?
    "It has been more than I expected. I have learned so much, I'm getting stronger, developing as a person as well as a player"
