Position changes improve Tigers' defense up the middle

Major league baseball teams place a premium on the defensive wizards who make playing shortstop and center field an art form. Why? Because the best teams are stronger up the middle.


Competition fueling the race for starting spots
The Clemson pitching staff fans see in 2016 will be vastly different than the one that led the Tigers to an NCAA Tournament berth last season. As a result, head coach Monte Lee and new pitching coach Andrew See are watching the competition for starting spots with a watchful eye.


Monte Lee era begins as Tigers hold first spring practice
The 2016 season will be one of transition for the Clemson baseball team, and the Tigers kicked their preparations for the season into high gear with the opening of practice Friday.


Monte Lee "not neutral" when it comes to Clemson/South Carolina
At some point early next baseball season, new head coach Monte Lee will lead his baseball team against arch-rival South Carolina, completing a cycle that started years ago when he was an assistant at Spartanburg Methodist and continued when he was an assistant for the Gamecocks. What are his thoughts on the rivalry?


The Meeting: Dabo introduces Monte to Clemson
Monte Lee walked into his introductory press conference in the team room at the WestZone last month and owned the stage, drawing comparisons to the coach that holds his own weekly and postgame press conferences: Dabo Swinney. Lee later met with Swinney and came impressed. What did the two talk about?


Terms of Monte Lee's contract released, including buyout clauses
Clemson University released the terms of new head baseball coach Monte Lee’s contract Tuesday afternoon, a contract that will run through 2020. What are the details? How much does Lee earn per win in the post-season?


Clate Schmidt has plans: Beat cancer, then return to be Clemson's Friday starter
Cancer isn’t going to slow down Clate Schmidt. In fact, the Clemson right-hander out of Acworth, Ga., not only plans to sail through chemo with his characteristic toughness, he plans to be on the mound as the Tigers’ Friday starter next season. (Photo courtesy of CUAD)


Clemson adds JUCO transfer to baseball program
The Clemson coaching staff added a JUCO transfer to the program this week, reaching out to California to reel in catcher Chris Williams. What does Williams say about heading to Clemson?


Lee embraces the expectations of getting Clemson back to Omaha
The road to Omaha is littered with obstacles for college baseball’s traditional powers, but the very best of those programs find a way to overcome those obstacles. Can Clemson find a way for its first trip to Omaha since 2010? New head coach Monte Lee believes it can.


Clemson-South Carolina rivalry? Monte Lee gets it
Monte Lee made it clear to anyone who would listen Monday afternoon: He understands the dynamic of Clemson vs. South Carolina, and he understands the rivalry and that should make upcoming baseball games between the rivals even more intense.


Monte Lee on Clemson: "This is a dream job of mine"
Monte Lee started out his introductory press conference at Clemson by saying "What a day" and then went into detail about his coaching style, how he will recruit and what fans can expect out of his teams.
