Tigers in Cullowhee

Former Catamount Head Coach Jack Leggett

What else can be said about today's baseball game that hasn't already been said or written?

 In what is probably the biggest baseball game of the season for the Catamounts for many reasons, Jack Leggett brings his Clemson Tigers to Cullowhee for the first ever live TV broadcast from Hennon Stadium. The game can be seen locally on WMYA (My 40), and nationally on ESPN3 at 4 pm.

Clemson leads the series 16-10 in games played in Cullowhee, and lead the overall series 56-15.

The Tigers are averaging 6.2 runs per game and are hitting .304, their pitching staff has a 3.60 ERA while the Cats have hit .304 and have a 4.22 ERa. Clemson sophomore infielder Tyler Krieger is hitting a team-best .405 with two doubles, six RBIs, 10 runs, and a .463 on-base percentage.

The 15h nationally ranked Tigers are 6-4 on the season, and are just coming off a sweep by #3 South Carolina Gamecocks.
