Former Clemson coach leads Team USA to gold medal

By

Former Clemson head coach Jack Leggett led USA Baseball’s 18-and-under national team to a gold medal in the Pan AM Games in Panama on Sunday.

Leggett, who coached the Tigers to six College World Series appearances during his time at Clemson, coached Team USA to a 17-2 victory over host Panama in the Gold Medal Game.

Team USA went 9-0 in the tournament.

“We played our butts off,” Leggett told The Clemson Insider. “We were on fire! We have probably six to eight first rounders on the team.”
