Six Tigers Named to All-ACC Baseball Team

Six Tigers Named to All-ACC Baseball Team

May 20, 2001

FORT MILL, S.C. – Six Clemson baseball players have been named All-ACC, including four first-team selections, the conference office announced late Saturday.

Jeff Baker, Khalil Greene, Jarrod Schmidt and Steve Reba were all first-team selections while Ryan Riley and Casey Stone garnered second-team kudos. The four first-team selections were the most since 1995 when Clemson also had four first-team selections. Clemson had no first-team selections in 2000, a year the Tigers advanced to the College World Series. Greene and Schmidt were second-team honorees a year ago, so this is the second time they have been named All-ACC.

Baker, a sophomore third baseman, has 22 home runs to lead the ACC and is tied for the team lead with Stone, a senior left fielder, with a .376 batting average. Greene switched from third base to shortstop and has no been named All-ACC in both positions. Schmidt has 15 home runs and ranks among the league’s top five in that category. He also has a 6-3 record and a 4.15 ERA as a right-handed pitcher. Reba, a junior right-hander leads the ACC with 11 wins and a 2.26 ERA. Riley, a senior, was one of the top second basemen in the ACC and has a .287 batting average. Seventeen of his 58 hits have been for extra bases.
