CLEMSON - First pitch for the 2017 baseball season is still three weeks away, but there is already an air of excitement at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Head coach Monte Lee returns six of nine position starters and pitchers who made 48 of the 64 starts (75 percent) on the mound in 2016. Clemson returns 2016 Dick Howser Trophy winner and ACC Player-of-the-Year Seth Beer and fellow first-team All-American Pat Krall, a senior lefthander.

Beer batted .369 with 18 home runs, 70 RBIs, 57 runs, 62 walks and a .535 on-base percentage as a freshman. Beer is slated to make the move to first base in 2017. In 2016, Krall was 10-2 with five saves, a 1.67 ERA, .203 opponents’ batting average and 65 strikeouts against 17 walks in 80.2 innings pitched. Krall led the ACC in ERA and became the first Tiger in history to lead the team outright in wins and saves.

The Tigers won the ACC and earned a national seed, but lost in the NCAA Regionals to an Oklahoma St. that wound up going to Omaha and the College World Series.
