Coach Leggett Chat Transcript
Leggett has led Clemson to 434 wins, more than 48 per season, nine NCAA Tournament berths, and four College World Series appearances. Clemson is the third-winningest program in college baseball during his time as head coach.
The enthusiastic mentor, who turns 49 on March 5, has not built up that win total against easy competition. Of his 434 victories, 111 (nearly 26 percent) have come against teams ranked in the top 25 of at least one of the three major polls heading into the game. He also already has 59 victories over top-10 teams and 35 wins in NCAA Tournament competition. Heading into 2003, Leggett has 811 career wins.
The 2002 season saw Leggett receive region Coach-of-the-Year honors by the American Basebal Coaches Association, as the Tigers were 54-17 and finished tied for third in the nation in Omaha. The road back to Omaha will begin this Friday for the Tigers at Auburn and continue next Wednesday, February 26, in the home opener against Charleston Southern at 3:00.
Coach Leggett won’t be stopping by until 10:00 AM on Wednesday, but you can submit your questions now.
