Colvin has had an outstanding spring, hitting .468 in 20 games for the
Cubs. He has 29 hits in 62 at bats with two home runs and 13 runs

title, the program's first in 12 years, and was named first-team All-ACC

walk-off grand slam in the Super Regional of the NCAA Tournament against
Oral Roberts that year. That Clemson team reached the College World
