as they look forward to the 2015 baseball season…

Dan Radakovich, Director of Athletics
Over the past week, I had several productive conversations with Coach Leggett as we completed a season-ending evaluation of the program. Prior to the meeting, I sought input from a variety of sources, both within our program and from the outside. The evaluation showed reasons for optimism moving forward, and we look forward to the 2015 season under the leadership of Coach Leggett.

One of the factors for a positive outlook for the program is the culture that Coach Leggett has created for his players. While every program not achieving its desired results has questions, I firmly believe following the research done, that the culture in the baseball program is solid.

This past season’s results were not to Clemson’s standards, and Coach and I are working together to improve many areas of the program, some which will be visible and others behind the scenes. Making adjustments within the baseball program, including the university’s participation in the Academic Common Market and investing in facility upgrades, will serve us well into the future. We have talented and committed student-athletes in our program, and we must do whatever is necessary to create opportunities for on-field success for these young men.

Our fans care deeply about Clemson baseball and show their support every game. I have heard from many supporters during the past season, and we will continue to strive to provide a first-class experience and championship-caliber baseball program worthy of their enthusiasm. The expectation to compete for championships on an annual basis, host NCAA Regionals and advance deep in the postseason is not changing. We will make some improvements, refocus on the goals ahead and set our sights on an outstanding 2015 season.

Jack Leggett, Head Baseball Coach
I truly appreciate the support and passion of our baseball community and we all want to win at the highest level, especially the coaches and players in the program. We did not have the kind of year that I had hoped for and it is my responsibility to lead us back to the standards we have set for Clemson Baseball.

Clemson is a truly special place. Working together with our passionate fans, all pulling in the same direction, I have no doubt we can return quickly to the success we have become accustomed to at Clemson. I am excited about the future, and look forward to working with Dan on improvements and adjustments to get us back to the level we all expect.
