We signed a Nationally recognized coach who is setting us up for success. 2019 Recruiting class is loaded with 5* talent:

Growing up baseball was my favorite sport with football a close second...BUT when you get really grown up and have (3) daughters coaching baseball kinda falls to the wayside. So basically fell in love with fastpitch after coaching my daughters through rec league and travel ball. I know, I know it's girls but hey don't knock it if you haven't watched it. Extremely fast sport with amazing athletes.

Go Tigers and Tigresses!

What is more important? A) That they look good. B) That they play well.

From what I've seen Oregon and Washington look good as well.

And definitely faster paced. I've followed the WCWS the past few years and it's good stuff.

We can be good very quickly. Florida State just won the national title last year but other than them the ACC is not that strong. We can get a foothold in the conference pretty quickly I think.

Go big or go home. I used to walk once or twice daily at the Lexington softball complex. That fp travel squad is huge. And exciting to watch. I’d be amazed at how athletic they are/were. Shoot, they’d have scouts there all the time and I’d hear the girls talking about going here or there etc.

They’d see my shirt and ask me if we were ever going to get a program etc. so glad we got one and great to hear from someone who knows that we have a good coach and have recruited excellent talent already.

I agree. Having a daughter that played college softball the sport heads to Clemson about 8 years to late. But I have become a big softball fan. Having to root for other colleges sucks. Now we can root for out team and I plan on making a few games during the year. Living about 100 miles from FSU campus I'll be at all the games down here. I do think we have the best coach available and possibly the best out there. Time will tell. But he wasn't named the U.S. National coach for no reason. He has put a pretty talented team together some are already on campus and practicing now. They will all redshirt and he's got a couple of top transfers that look to head our way as well. This team should compete immediately with everyone but FSU in the conference and may even give FSU fits on year 2.

NOTHING wrong with softball, girls or boys. I enjoy watching the ladies play on tv and watching lady Tigers will be especially enjoyable. Wonder who the first tnetters will be to call for the coaches head?


Not surprised. He has the reputation. And Clemson will

he is a very cordial, humble person and loves this area (just built a new house). Other coaches are very nice people too. We did good hiring John.

I can tell that the softball team will be held in as high regard as Clemson baseball. Clemson family will come out in droves to watch these young women. It's exciting to finally have women's softball. I think Clemson will be automatically nationally relevant just because of the talent in the surrounding area. As you can already tell there have been young ladies just waiting for this opportunity and highly touted young ladies at that. That has to be a really big selling point that you can come in and

Women's softball is all about pitching. If we have some young ladies that can pitch at a high level we can be competitive early on. Women's softball (at any level) sure beats the "home run derby" that men's softball turned into when it went to slow pitch.
