First pitch coming up soon.
Sr. RHP Sean Clark (Clemson) vs. Jr. LHP Lee Hyde (Georgia Tech)
These teams have played six times already, splitting six games. Clemson coach Jack Leggett chose Clark, a senior who is 2-0, 1.80 in 30 innings because he's one of the few arms Georgia Tech hasn't seen this season. Clark earned wins in the chamionship of the ACC tournament and the opener of the Clemson Regional before throwing 3 2/3 strong innings of relief against Oral Roberts in the super-regional.
Hyde allowed two runs on seven hits over eight innings in Tech's 3-2 loss to Clemson in the ACC tournament. He also has thrown well in two NCAA tournament starts and gets the call over normal Friday starter Blake Wood because his lefthandedness matches up better against a left-leaning Clemson lineup.

Here's a nice story on Mike Trapani and life with Tourette's Syndrome.
Here's another story "Postcards from Omaha" story, with this from Trap on his syndrome:
And my teammates at Tech have always been supportive. They get excited when I throw up during games - that's how we know we're going to win.
Well, ain't that a superstition?
