We're on pace to set NCAA strikeout records in baseball.

As a team, we currently have 447 Ks. At current course and speed, we'll have 569 in just 56 games. The NCAA record is held by FSU, with 520 in 1984. However, FSU did it in 84 games. We're on pace to do it in 56.

The individual record is 99 by Tom Mendonca of Fresno St. in 2008. Grice sits at 80 with 12 games left. At his current pace he'll have 101 K's in 56 games. It took Mendonca 78 games for his accomplishment. Grice could break it in 56.

I believe I'd find a new hitting coach if I were Coach Lee.

as long as our hitting philosophy remains the same. It’s ok to swing hard. It’s ok to drive the ball. H?ll, I’m not even going to fight you over launch angles or guessing about pitches.

But please stop trying to pull outside pitches! The physics doesn’t work! Please learn to hit the ball where it’s pitched.
(We have a few doing it this year!!!)

Please, when you get two strikes . . . STOP GUESSING, Get the Bat Off Your Shoulder and just hit the dãmn ball!!!

Coach Lee IS our hitting Coach.

In the case pf some of our players it is 1) watch the first pitch come over the middle of the plate belt high 2) swing and miss at the second off speed pitch on the corner or just off the plate 3) be at the mercy of anything pitch near the zone for a called third strike or swing and miss. I always thought it was a good idea to swing at the first good pitch to hit.

I got the data from the clemsontigers.com stat sheet but I crawled through all of the box scores to double check.

Still shaking my fool head.

Modern day BB with the launch angles and other stuff is ok if you have the talent to pull it off. I don't like it because I can't stand strikeouts. I dont think this approach is for everyone. This approach has failed miserably at Clemson. I was hoping to see some adjustments at the plate this year but it's the same old thing.

There are newer stats as of 2017, Vanderbilt had 620 K’s in 72 games (2015). Unlikely Clemson gets that many by season’s miserable end.
