Hinson Back to Win National Championship


John Hinson and the Clemson baseball team wrapped up fall ball this weekend with a three game series. 

“Fall ball has been fun.  It has been a good year and everybody is upbeat especially coming off our trip to Omaha.  Everybody is really upbeat and really motivated.  We came so close to getting in that championship round.  Everybody is ready for the season to start,” said Hinson.

Coach Jack Leggett got some great news in August when John and Jeff Schaus decided to return.  Why did the starting third baseman decide to return to Clemson?

“Like I said going to Omaha was such an amazing experience.  Me and Schaus had an opportunity to come back and prove how really good this program is.  We are really happy with our decision and we are really motivated to do something this school has never done and that is to win a national championship,” replied Hinson.

“What I think it takes to be a good team is chemistry.  This team has some of the best team chemistry that I have ever been a part of and let alone the talent.  I think Richie Shaffer is really going to have a good year.  There are a couple of other guys that will have good years this year.  As long as we play to our talent level we will be alright,” said Hinson.
