Clemson shortstop sets HR derby record
Clemson shortstop Logan Davidson set a College Home Run Derby record with 58 total homers in Sunday's competition in Omaha, Nebraska.
Making his second-straight appearance in the derby, Davidson made a late charge to make the finals versus Air Force's Nic Ready by totaling 23 points (22 home runs, one worth two) in the second round, and went into the last pitch with a chance to win the event - falling 21-20 in the final round.
Ready totaled 55 home runs on the night for the event that stretches back to 2010.

Davidson totaled 15 home runs in 2018 and has 27 in two seasons in Tigertown. He also hit .292 with a team-high 18 doubles, 46 RBIs, 60 runs, a .408 on-base percentage and a team-high 10 steals as a sophomore.
Davidson, who hit nine of his 15 home runs as a right-handed batter, was a third-team All-American by Baseball America and Second-Team All-ACC selection. In his career, he is hitting .289 with 27 homers, 27 doubles, 87 RBIs, 116 runs, a .398 on-base percentage and 20 steals in 126 games.
The night was a third time a Tiger hit in the College Home Run Derby. Former Tiger Richie Shaffer (2010-12), who, like Davidson, attended Providence High School in Charlotte, participated in the 2011 College Home Run Derby.
