Thirty one seasons at the helm of the Florida State baseball team, Mike Martin gears up for another year on the diamond with the Seminoles.
"It's always exciting for the first day of spring training," FSU head baseball coach Mike Martin says.
Following a season which FSU advanced to its 20th College World Series and won its fifth conference championship, 11 has his team prepared for the early expectations of doing it all over again.
"You have a ball club that is experienced, we just have to still be hungry. I think the expectations will be high because, of course, of the number of r returning starters that we have."
Seven position players and twelve pitchers make up more than half of the roster.
"We're very excited about that. I don't know when we've had as many guys returning because the draft usually gets a number of our guys."
The 'Noles enter the season ranked inside the top fifteen in many of the preseason polls and were selected by coaches from around the ACC to finish in second in the Atlantic Division. High expectations, but they come as no surprise. Florida State has won their division each of the last four years.
