Alex Bregman, Alex Cora made interesting wager on Miami-LSU game

As Miami and LSU get their college football seasons going against each other, the stakes are high for Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and Boston Red Sox manager (and former Houston bench coach) Alex Cora.

When the two teams square off in Boston, one of them will be wearing something they’d rather not.

There seems to be slightly more on the line for Cora here. There’s no doubt that Bregman would not want to wear The U’s famed turnover chain. But Warren Morris isn’t simply an LSU legend. Morris became an LSU legend when he won the 1996 College World Series with a two-out, two-run walk-off home run to win the final game 8-7.┬áCora was on that Miami team. We doubt he’d want to relieve that particular memory with Morris’ jersey on his back.

The stakes are certainly high for Boston’s skipper.
