Martin reaching a milestone and Hofstra Preview

Florida State Head Coach Mike Martin is nearing a milestone of taking over the number 4 spot in collegiate baseball wins. If Mike Martin Sr. is able to sweep Hofstra and pick up the victory over Florida in their mid-week game, he will move into sole possession of fourth place. This has been a very good year for Mr. Martin because he was named to the ABCA on January 5th. The Tallahassee Democrat wrote a real good article about Martin reaching this milestone. It can be read here.

The FSU Seminoles will welcome Hofstra to Tallahassee this weekend for a three game set. Hofstra has played in one series this year and were swept by Auburn last weekend. The Seminoles enter the series at 6-0 with consecutive sweeps over Tennessee and UNC-Asheville.

Game Notes for Vols at Seminoles

Both Florida State and Tennessee have posted game notes for the big series in Tallahassee this weekend. The Seminoles enter the series with many question marks with a pitching staff which is very low in experience. After Bryan Henry, The Noles are planning on starting Micheal Hyde who really was like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde last season and they are still TBA on a Sunday starter. They will also be without Luke Tucker who is still sitting on the sidelines with a sore pitching arm. The Vols are not without injuries either. They will be missing Julio Borbon who was expected to start in center field this season but will be out another 6-8 weeks with a broken ankle. He was one of the best players on the USA National team this summer.
