CLEMSON, SC - After winning four games in two days at the NCAA Baseball
Regional at Fayetteville, AR, #12 Clemson (41-25) now heads to College
Station, TX to face #2 Texas A&M (50-15) in a best two-out-of-three
series for a shot to go to the College World Series in Omaha.

The Clemson-Texas A&M Super Regional series will begin Friday,
June 4 at Olsen Field at 8 p.m. (EST). The Aggies will be the home team
in game one. The two teams will meet again on Saturday at 8 p.m. (EST),
where Clemson will be the home team, and on Sunday if necessary at 3
p.m. (EST). A coin flip will determine the home team for game three.
This will be the first meeting between the two schools on the baseball
diamond.

Both teams won two games on Sunday to advance to the Super
Regional. Clemson defeated SW Missouri State 8-7 and 7-5 to advance in
the new formatted NCAA Tournament, while Texas A&M, who is 30-3 at home
in '99, defeated Long Beach State 9-5 and 17-7 to make the round of 16.

Clemson's Khalil Greene, Patrick Boyd, and Ryan Mottl were named
to the regional all-tournament team at Fayetteville. Greene, a
freshman third baseman, hit a team best .611 with 11 hits, five doubles,
and 10 RBI in the five games. Boyd hit .429 in the three-day event with
two home runs and six RBI. Mottl pitched Clemson's first complete game
of the season in defeating Delaware 17-3 on Saturday. The junior
right-hander gave up nine hits and two earned runs while walking two and
striking out five.

With Clemson's wins on Sunday, the Tigers reached the 40 win
plateau for the 14th straight season.

The last time Clemson played in the state of Texas was 1997 at
the NCAA Central Regional in Lubbock, TX. The Tigers finished the
Regional 1-2.


Note: Clemson moved up to #17 in this week's Baseball America pol and
#12 in the Collegiate Baseball poll. USA Today Baseball Weekly will not
have another poll until the completion of the '99 season. Texas A&M is
ranked #2, #6, and #5, respectively, by the same publications.
