Tonight we welcomed into SportsTalk the man who leads the Clemson baseball team, head coach Jack Leggett. Leggett and his squad are headed to Chappel Hill, North Carolina, to take on a University of North Carolina baseball team that is currently ranked the #1 team in all the land.
First we had to recap the mid-week split of Clemson’s series with the Georgia Bulldogs. Coach was seemingly really pleased with his Tigers’ 9-1 win in Athens on Tuesday night, but was just as disappointed with his squad’s 5-3 loss at Doug Kingsmore Stadium Wednesday night.
Leggett is still waiting for his team to put together a stretch of quality baseball, and hopes that this weekend will be the turning point. He breaks down the pitching matchups for the weekend, and believes it will be the “story of the weekend”.
Finally we asked Coach Leggett about the potential for upgrades and maintenance to Doug Kingsmore Stadium in the future.
