CLEMSON, SC - According to various media reports Clemson baseball head coach, Jack Leggett, was seriously injured in a snow skiing accident while on a family vacation in Vail, Colorado.


He suffered 2 fractured vertebrae in his neck but underwent successful surgery in which the fractures were fused with bones from his hip.
