Widmann, who graduated from Clemson with a degree in sport management in December, has withdrawn from school and will pursue job opportunities.
"Stan has been a valuable and loyal member of our baseball program
for the past five years," said Leggett. "It's extremely difficult to
see this come about, but I certainly understand his decision. He has
overcome some tough obstacles and has not been healthy this season,
which I know has been frustrating for him. I respect what he has
accomplished as a member of both an ACC Championship and College World
Series team. We certainly wish the best for him and his future."
The Hurst, TX native was a career .284 hitter with 30 doubles, five
triples, eight homers, 90 RBIs, and 39 steals in 42 attempts in 194
games (191 starts) as a Tiger from 2005-09. He was the starting
shortstop on Clemson's 2006 ACC Championship and College World Series
team when he hit .307 in 67 games. Widmann also overcame a serious
neck injury that forced him to miss most of 2007. As a graduate
student in 2009, he only appeared in one game (as a pinch-runner) due
to lingering effects from a shoulder injury.
