Tonight Clemson assistant baseball coach Bradley LeCroy joined us on SportsTalk.

The Tiger club lost two of three in their season opening series at Doug Kingsmore Stadium last weekend against West Virginia.

This weekend the Tigers squad will be one of roughly 40 schools across the country that have been forced to reschedule or move their games.  Clemson’s series against Maine will take place at Lake Olmstead Stadium in Augusta, which will be roughly a two-hour trip south for the Tigers.

Coach LeCroy discussed with us how the weather will affect the series.  He also updated us on the health of infielder Tyler Krieger, who is coming off of rotator cuff surgery.  The Tiger staff is hoping to have him ready to go this weekend and play either shortstop or second base for the series against the Black Bears.

Holbrook also previewed his arms, bats, and gloves with us as well.
