Who would make your all-time Clemson baseball lineup?

NCAA.com went through the record books to pick the best of the best for Tiger baseball through the years and came up with a collection of players stretching back as far as 1939 to as recent as 2018.

Seth Beer is that most recent player, who won national player of the year honors as a freshman in 2016, and totaled 56 homers and 177 RBIs over three seasons. Recent South Carolina Hall of Fame inductee Shane Monahan joins him in the outfield, ranking highly in the Clemson record books in batting average (.394), triples (21), doubles (60), stolen bases (61), and runs (235) - holding single-season marks in hits (137), multiple-hit games (46), singles (94), and runs (97).

NCAA.com's pick for first base is Dude Buchanan, who hit .402 over his career spanning from 1939-41. Khalil Greene mans shortstop with his career including a run at the Golden Spikes and Dick Howser Awards in 2002, hitting .470 with 27 home runs, 33 doubles, 91 RBIs and 17 stolen bases that season.

On the mound would be right-hander Kris Benson, who was a No. 1 pick in the MLB Draft during a 14-2 and 2.02-ERA campaign at Clemson in 1996

Their selections would be coached by hall-of-famer Bill Wilhelm, who totaled 1,161 wins, 11 ACC titles and six College World Series appearances without a losing season in a career stretching from 1958-93.
