The Clemson Tigers advanced to the Regionals of last year’s NCAA Tournament before being bounced by South Carolina and the Tigers hope to take another step towards a return to Omaha this season.
Clemson is ranked 27th in Collegiate Baseball’s preseason poll and the Tigers begin preseason practice this weekend. Clemson will be without the services of Richie Shaffer this season, but the Tigers return several key members of last year’s squad, including second baseman Steve Wilkerson, who was named a 3rd-team All-American by Louisville Slugger.
We spoke with Clemson assistant coach Bradley LeCroy about the upcoming practices for the Tigers, the names and faces to watch out for once the season begins and the anticipation of getting another shot at the Gamecocks.
