World Series features 11 former SEC players, the most of any conference

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the SEC will have the most alumni out of any conference represented in the 2017 World Series between the Dodgers and Astros.

11 former SEC stars are on the rosters, six more than the Pac-12 and ACC, which each have five representitves.

The Astros most notable SEC alumnus is former Arkansas Razorback Dallas Keuchel. Houston also has two former LSU Tigers in Will Harris and Alex Bregman. Tony Kemp went to Vanderbilt, but he’s not on the active roster.

Georgia dominates the Dodgers’ dugout with three representatives in Alex Wood, Josh Fields and Kyle Farmer. Logan Forsythe is on the Los Angeles side for the Razorbacks and Grant Dayton (60-day DL) represents Auburn. Ross Stripling played for Texas A&M while Walker Buehler (not on active roster) played for Vanderbilt as well.

Keuchel takes the mound Tuesday night against Clayton Kershaw in Game 1.
