CLEMSON, SC -- Clemson Head Baseball Coach Jack Leggett is resting in his Clemson
home after a serious neck injury suffered while skiing in Vail,
Colorado on
Dec. 19. Leggett lost his balance after hitting a depression in the
snow
and landed on the back of his neck. He had surgery in Colorado to fuse
bone between two vertebrae.


Leggett has experienced extreme shoulder and back discomfort since
the injury along with frailty in his right arm. He is spending half
his
day staying active and the other half resting. He will be in a neck
brace
for six to eight weeks and is expected to make a full recovery.


"I want to thank everyone for their thoughts, cards, and get-well
wishes," said Leggett. "I've gotten calls and cards from many former
players and fellow coaches. It means a lot to me for everyone who has
gone
out of their way to show they care. It provides me with motivation to
get
better."


Leggett is expected to travel to Lake Buena Vista, Fla. for the
season-opening games in the ACC Disney Blast from Jan. 28-30. He is
also
expected to be at the Tigers' first preseason practice on Jan. 8.
