Florida State Seminoles Baseball Schedule 2014
One of the most
successful college baseball programs in the sports history is ready to begin a new season with their sights set on the College
World Series. The Seminoles compete in the Atlantic Coast Conference, playing against tough competition every time they take
the diamond. Led by legendary coach Mike Martin, who has managed Florida State for 34 years, the Seminoles will be looking
to make up for their shortcomings in the 2013 season. After another brilliant regular season, the Seminoles stumbled in the
tournament, losing to the Indiana Hoosiers. The Seminoles played 2013 without a number of their top players, who were out
due to injury, and had lost seven players to the MLB draft after the 2012 season. Looking to start fresh in 2014, Florida
State thinks that this is the year they finally head back to Omaha.
The offensive juggernaut that is the Florida State
baseball program has a tough schedule again this year, including games against eleven teams who won over 30 games last year
and 5 teams who finished in the Top 25. The hard work begins when the Miami Hurricanes come to Tallahassee to take on their
in state rivals with a weekend series from February 28-March 2 at Dick Howser Stadium. The Hurricanes come into the season
as the #13 ranked team in the preseason polls and they are ready to take down the rival Seminoles. The season is certainly
getting started off with a bang.
Things won't get much easier as the season progresses, as the Seminoles welcome the
North Carolina State Wolfpack, who made it all the way to the College World Series last season. The Wolfpack have two of the
best players in the country, Pitcher Carlos Rodon and Infielder Trea Turner, and may be the Seminoles biggest obstacle in
finally bringing home a National Championship to Tallahassee. There has never been a better time to take in a Seminoles game
at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium, so pick a series and cheer on your Seminoles in person today.
The Florida State Seminoles have been one of the most successful baseball programs in college baseball with a
winning percentage of.730, good enough for second highest all time. With all of the regular season successes in the program's
history, Conference championships and College World Series appearances, the Seminoles have yet to bring home college baseballs
biggest prize. Some of the biggest names in the Major Leagues are Florida State alumni, like National League MVP and two time
World Champion Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants and JD and Stephen Drew, brothers who have both won World Championships
with the Boston Red Sox.
Heading into the 2014 season, the Florida State Seminoles know that they have the roster to
take them all the way to Omaha. The program is known for its offensive prowess, but this season everyone is talking about
their starting rotation. With three excellent pitchers in Luke Weaver, Brandon Leibrandt and Mike Compton, this Seminoles
squad is truly dynamic. Longtime coach Mike Martin knows that he needs to finally bring home the National Championship that
has long evaded the Seminoles and they are set up perfectly to do so.
Baseball is truly
the national pastime of this country, as American as apple pie. It is the perfect family outing, a day spent watching true
athletes in a game of skill and strategy. When you get a ticket to take friends and family to a college baseball game, you
are watching student athletes leave it all out on the diamond, playing for their school, their community and the hopes of
getting to the next level. Florida State Seminoles fans know lot about winning, with the second best winning percentage in
college baseball history. Seeing a game at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium is an iconic experience in the world of
college baseball, a field that has hosted 23 NCAA Regional Tournaments since it opened in 1983 and continues to host one of
the top teams in the country every season. In 2004, Dick Howser Stadium underwent a 2 year, multi-million stadium renovation
that expanded the stadium, which now seats 6,700 screaming Seminoles fans. Don't miss your chance to bust out your tomahawk
chop and catch exciting ACC baseball action in one of the nation's top venues.
