The day of the Major League Baseball draft is always a stressful day for Clemson head coach Jack Leggett. When his team is two days away from a Super Regional, his job is even more difficult.


Seven current Tigers were drafted on the first day of the Major League Baseball draft. At least three more could possibly go on the second day of the draft (Marquez Smith, PJ Zocchi, Adrian Casanova). The team will work to stay focused. The recent track record indicates the team will be ready.


In 2002, the team had players get drafted while making their way to Omaha. They fell one-game short of playing for the National title.


Early indications are this team will stay focused. First baseman Andy D’Alessio had an interview request to discuss the draft on Monday, and D’Alessio declined the interview, saying he is preparing to win a championship.


Practice is closed today to prevent any further discussion about the draft coming up with the media. It was an exciting day for the seven Tigers drafted, but all of them indicated they are still focused on reaching Omaha.
