The last time Clemson won the ACC Baseball Tournament in 2016, the Tigers were the #6 seed and Monte Lee was in his inaugural season as the Tigers’ head coach. Will Erik Bakich duplicate that feat? In his first season, his Tigers are the #3 seed as they open play tonight against Virginia Tech.
The Tigers are one of the nation’s hottest teams right now having won 12 in a row, 17 of 18 and 22 of their last 25. They are 39-17 going into tonight’s game against the Hokies who they swept in Blacksburg two weekends ago. The Hokies lost to Boston College yesterday, and the Tigers will play the Eagles Friday morning.
Wednesday morning Chris Burgin caught up with Bakich for a phone interview from Durham. Matt Smith will be covering the Tigers at the tournament starting tonight.
