Jack Leggett's first 15 seasons in Tigertown. The Tigers have also
been ranked #1 for 20 weeks by at least one of the three major polls
Stolen Base Totals Up in 2009
In three games, Clemson has stolen 12 bases in 14 attempts. The
Tigers did not steal their 12th bases until the 14th game of the 2008
season. A big reason for Clemson's 4.0 steals per game is the nine
steals the Tigers had against Charlotte in the season-opener on
February 20. The Tigers were a perfect 9-9 on steals, including three
by Addison Johnson and two each by three other Tigers. It was the
most stolen bases by the Tigers in a game since April 19, 1989, when
Clemson swiped 10 bases in a 16-5 win over Georgia Tech.
