Brad Felder will be one of the new faces in the outfield this year for the Tigers. Brad transferred to Clemson from the Citadel and will bring some experience to an outfield that lost all of the starters from 2011.
“It has been a great transition. We have been practicing real hard and getting ready for the season. It is a lot different aspect school wise not having the military aspect of things,” said Felder.
Does Brad like not having to deal with the military aspects?
“(laughing) Yes sir,” replied Felder.
With all of the starters gone from the outfield Brad will have an opportunity to play early.
“I think I couldn’t have come at a better time with them losing the whole outfield from last year. They have a good group of guys that are already here. We have been working hard and hopefully we can make some things happen,” said Felder.
What will Brad bring to the Tigers?
“I will bring speed and aggressiveness and hustle all over the place. Hopefully good things will happen,” said Felder.
What are Brad’s goals for this season?
“I just want to work hard and if the coach puts me in the lineup make something happen,” said Felder.
How good can the offense be in 2012?
“I think we should be pretty good. I wasn’t here last year to know what type of players they lost. I think we have a pretty good lineup and some great pitching to back it up so we will see,” said Felder.
Brad is looking forward to playing in Doug Kingsmore.
“It should be awesome. I am used to playing in front of around 400. They tell me they can pack this place up to about 7,000 so it should be exciting,” said Felder.
