  1. South Carolina high schools pulling number of deceased USC baseball commit Jan. 25, 2017 Several high schools in the Columbia, S.C., area are doing their part to honor the memory of their friend and opponent, Brett Williams. Williams, who had committed to play baseball at the University of South Carolina, died earlier this month after flu complications. Several tributes followed from fellow coaches and the Gamecocks alike. The most recent might be the most touching: Several schools are pulling the No. 22 from their roster this season in honor of Williams, who wore 22 at White Knoll High in Lexington, S.C. Lexington High coach Brian Hucks told LexingtonWildcats.com that his team would not wear 22 this season. Now others will follow suit. Clearly, it’s a touching gesture for those who knew Williams, including Gamecocks baseball coach Chad Holbrook. Williams was 16 years old. His teammates at White Knoll dedicated the upcoming season to his memory. “Brett Williams was a special kid,” Holbrook said last week in a statement. “He had all the traits coaches love to have on their teams. He had great character, a tireless work ethic and an incredible personality that we were all drawn to. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his beautiful family and everyone in the Lexington and White Knoll community. #22 will be deeply missed.” Williams would have been a sophomore at White Knoll this spring. As a freshman he played first base and pitched.

The Gamecocks begin the 2017 season on Friday, Feb. 17 hosting UNCG at Founders Park. South Carolina is one of five SEC schools to be ranked. Also ranked is Florida (No. 2), LSU (No. 5), Vanderbilt (No. 7) and Texas A&M (No. 20). This is South Carolina's third preseason national ranking. The Gamecocks were also ranked No. 4 in the country by Collegiate Baseball and No. 5 in the nation by Perfect Game. RANK TEAM (2016 Record) 1 TCU (49-18) 2 Florida (52-16) 3 Florida State (41-22) 4 South Carolina (46-18) 5 LSU (45-21) 6 NC State (38-22) 7 Vanderbilt (43-19) 8 Oregon State (35-19) 9 North Carolina (34-21) 10 East Carolina (38-23) 11 Coastal Carolina (55-18) 12 Louisville (50-14) 13 UL Lafayette (43-21) 14 Texas Tech (47-20) 15 Clemson (44-20) 16 Cal State Fullerton (36-23) 17 Virginia (38-22) 18 Stanford (31-23) 19 Arizona (49-24) 20 Texas A&M (49-16) 21 Miami (Fla.)

  3. South Carolina baseball: Four Gamecocks ranked among Top 100 college prospects Jan. 07, 2016 South Carolina baseball has high hopes for its 2017 campaign and a group of potential high MLB Draft picks are a big reason why. The Gamecocks had four players ranked among BaseballAmerica’s Top 100 college draft prospects, led by junior pitcher Wil Crowe. Crowe checked in at No. 11, followed by junior pitcher Clarke Schmidt at 17, pitcher Tyler Johnson at No. 35 and junior first baseman/outfielder Alex Destino at No. 86. Crowe and Schmidt are in line to anchor the South Carolina starting rotation this season, battling for the right to be the Friday starter. Crowe, who has been drafted twice by the Cleveland Indians, is coming off Tommy John surgery. He has not pitched in a game since the spring of 2015, when his season was cut short as he sought to build on a freshman All-American season in 2014. Crowe was 3-4 with a 4.91 ERA in 2015 after going 8-3 with a 2.75 ERA in 15 starts as a freshman. Schmidt, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound Georgia native, is coming off a sophomore season in which he went 9-5 with a 3.40 ERA. He struck out 129 and walked just 27 in 111.1 innings. Johnson had a lighter load during South Carolina’s fall baseball campaign after his summer spent with Team USA. The reliever served as South Carolina’s closer in 2016, notching nine saves with a 2.42 ERA as opponents hit just .187 against the 6-2, 205-pound Virginia native. The left-handed hitting Destino, the lone position player to represent the Gamecocks on the Top 100 list, has primarily been an outfield and designated hitter for the Gamecocks. He could see action at firs base this season. He hit .321 with a team-leading 10 home runs. He also had 59 RBIs, 40 runs scored and 14 doubles as he slugged .509 in 60 games, including 59 starts. South Carolina will open its 2017 season with a three-game series against UNC-Greensboro from Feb. 17-19. The Gamecocks are ranked No. 4 in the nation by Collegiate Baseball going into 2017.
  4. USC’s Tyler Johnson and Clarke Schmidt named preseason All-Americans Jan. 09, 2016 South Carolina junior right-hander Tyler Johnson and junior right-hander Clarke Schmidt earned Preseason All-America accolades as announced by Perfect Game on Monday afternoon. Johnson was a first-team selection with Schmidt earning second-team selection honors. South Carolina opens the 2017 season on Friday, Feb. 17 hosting UNCG. Last season, Johnson went 3-2 with a 2.42 ERA and had nine saves. Johnson struck out 59 to just eight walks in 52.0 innings in 29 relief appearances. Eight of Johnson’s nine saves were in league play, the most by any SEC pitcher. Johnson pitched on USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team over the summer. Schmidt also earned preseason second-team honors from Collegiate Baseball. He earned third-team All-America honors from Collegiate Baseball and the NCBWA last year after going 9-5 with a 3.40 ERA. He struck out 129 batters to 27 walks in 111.1 innings pitched with opponents hitting .248 against him. Schmidt’s 129 strikeouts are the second-highest among returning pitchers from last season in Division I baseball. Clemson outfielder Seth Beer was named to the first team. Coastal Carolina pitcher Andrew Beckwith was named to the second team. 2017 Perfect Game Rawlings Preseason College All-American Teams First Team C — Mike Rivera, Florida 1B — Pavin Smith, Virginia 2B — Nick Madrigal, Oregon State 3B — Jake Burger, Missouri State SS — Kevin Smith, Maryland OF — Seth Beer, Clemson OF — Jeren Kendall, Vanderbilt OF — Keston Hiura, UC Irvine DH — Nick Feight, UNC Wilmington UT — Brendan McKay, Louisville SP — Alex Faedo, Florida SP — Kyle Wright, Vanderbilt SP — J.B.

  7. Holbrook: 'We had a good fall' Oct. 31, 2016 A editor and a national writer for D1Baseball.com, Aaron Fitt remarked after the first game of the annual fall-ending Garnet & Black World Series for South Carolina baseball that he felt the Gamecocks would be in strong consideration for preseason No. 1 in the spring of 2017. South Carolina baseball head coach Chad Holbrook after the final game of the Garnet & Black World Series said he obviously appreciated the thought, but he also knows the Gamecocks have a long ways to go if they want to be one of the last ones standing in the 2017 season. "That's neat for our fans to talk about and I'm sure it's neat for the media folks to talk about, but we're far and away not close to being the No. 1 team in the nation as we sit here right now," Holbrook said. "Do we have the talent to be talked about as one of the nation's best teams? Yeah, I think so, but we've got to continue to improve. If we're thought about among the top 10 to 15 teams in the country that's good enough for me. I feel like we've got a good chance to be one of the last teams standing, but boy you've got to play well and you've got to improve and you've got to be lucky, the ball has got to bounce your way. It's nice to be thought of and it's nice to be in the conversation, but that's not going to help us come game one in February. We've got to have the mindset that we've got a lot to work on, a lot to improve upon, and hopefully this group will." South Carolina's annual Garnet & Black World Series concluded the evening of Sunday, Oct. 30, at Founders Park with the Garnet team taking the rubber game of the series with a 7-3 victory. The Black team would take an early 3-0 lead in the top of the second, but in the bottom of the inning the Garnet team would garner one of the runs back. The Garnet team would then even up the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the third on a two-run home run to left-center field by one of the stars of the fall in junior Madison Stokes. "I always knew Madison was very, very talented," Holbrook said of Stokes' strong fall that included him playing an elite shortstop. "Finding him the right position was kind of on me to make him comfortable I think. He certainly played comfortable baseball all fall long in the way he played defense. He swung the bat, he hit for power, he hit for average, he kind of quarterbacked some things in the middle there and made every play. We hadn't had him at short for a lot during his career here, but he certainly played it at a high level this fall." The Garnet team would eventually take possession of the rubber game in the series in the bottom of the fifth when junior Alex Destino blasted a three-run home run to right field to give his team a commanding 6-3 lead. One inning later the Garnet team would add one more run to secure the four-run win. "We had a good fall, and our pitchers threw extremely well for the most part," Holbrook said shortly after the conclusion of the Garnet & Black World Series. "I think that really stood out as you kind of look back on the fall. We had some individuals stand out as well. I thought Stokes had a great fall playing short and swinging the bat. I thought (sophomore) TJ Hopkins made some strides. I thought (sophomore) Chris Cullen was very impressive in the way that he swung the bat. We've still got some things to work on as a group, and there were a lot of guys that kind of had their moments. We've got the makings of a good team if we can play defense behind our pitching staff. We certainly have a lot to improve upon and to work on, but I think the one thing I take away from the fall is we've got a talented group of pitchers and we've got a talented group of players, but we've got to continue to improve as a group so that we can play at a high level come February." The fall scrimmage portion of the fall for the Gamecocks may be over, but Holbrook knows the next couple of months are incredibly important for South Carolina baseball. "We've got to continue to work hard, we've got to continue to improve, and hopefully our guys will have the right mindset going into this critical part of the calendar," Holbrook said. "We need to get in the weight room, we need to put on some weight. We'll have yoga classes to improve our flexibility. We've got some things to work on, and hopefully we'll be productive here in November and December and put ourselves in a good position come February."
  8. Garnet team takes World Series as Gamecocks look ahead to 2017 Oct. 31, 2016 South Carolina concluded the Garnet & Black World Series on Sunday night with the Garnet squad winning the three-game series with a 7-3 victory in the decisive game. Alex Destino broke a tie with a three-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning that proved to be the difference. Garnet won the opener 2-1, before the Black team came back with a 1-0 victory on Saturday. The winning team will probably get a steak dinner, while the losing squad will probably have to settle for hot dogs from the convenience store. “If I feed them a good meal, the head coach gets to eat that, too,” South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook joked. “We’ll all sit at the same table and the losing team will get their wieners from the 7-11 and the winning team will get steaks.” Despite the number of runs scored on Sunday, pitching has been at the forefront for the Gamecocks. Clarke Schmidt and Wil Crowe are two of the top starters who will give South Carolina a formidable 1-2 punch in the weekend rotation. Reed Scott, Josh Reagan, Adam Hill, and Colie Bowers also have looked good on the mound. Hill missed one weekend during the fall with a tired arm, but returned to pitch well the past couple of weekends. “We had a good fall and the pitchers threw well for the most part. I think that’s what stood out as you look back on the fall,” Holbrook said. “We have a talented group of pitchers (and) a talented group of players, but we have to continue to improve as a group, so we can play at a high level come February.” The re-emergence of Crowe has been a welcome sight for Holbrook. The junior right-hander missed the 2016 season after having Tommy John surgery, but has looked good this fall. His fastball has regained its velocity, while his curveball, slider and change-up are in top form. “(Crowe) was 94-96 (mph) the other day and looked like a legitimate Friday night, first round guy,” Holbrook said. “But it’s still a process with Wil, but I think he’s back.” Several position battles will carry into the spring. LT Tolbert and Madison Stokes are looking to replace Marcus Mooney at shortstop, and both have looked good at times in the fall. Whoever isn’t the everyday shortstop has a good chance to play second. Danny Blair and TJ Hopkins split time in center field. Hopkins played some in right last year, so it’s possible both will be in the starting lineup in the spring. Chris Cullen and John Jones will handle the bulk of the catching duties. Whichever is not behind the plate will probably DH. Matt Williams also had an outstanding fall. “I thought Stokes had a great fall playing short and swinging the bat,” Holbrook said. “I thought TJ Hopkins made some strides. Chris Cullen was very impressive in the way he swung the bat. We still have a lot of things to work on as a group, and there was a lot of guys that had their moments. We have the making of a good team if we can play defense behind our pitching staff.” Read more here: http://www.thestate.com/sports/college/university-of-south-carolina/usc-baseball/article111538477.html#storylink=cpy

  12. South Carolina pitcher Tyler Johnson will wear his country’s colors this summer. The rising junior has accepted an invitation to join USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team. Johnson becomes the 11th player in school history to play for the Team USA with the most recent being catcher Grayson Greiner in 2013. Former first baseman Christian Walker was selected in 2011, but was unable to play due to injury. "I'm excited to have the opportunity to head out to California and represent the United States of America," Johnson said. "Furthermore, this wouldn't have been possible without the support of our coaching staff, my teammates and my family. I'm truly honored in accepting this invitation as it holds a lot of responsibility. I am excited to play for the Red, White and Blue while representing the Garnet and Black." Former head coach Ray Tanner was the head coach of the team in 2003 while current pitching coach Jerry Meyers served in the same capacity with Team USA in 2008. Johnson will play for current Oregon head coach George Horton, who is the manager of the team.

  22. Columbia Regional Rhode Island Vs. South Carolina June 03, 2016 First pitch 7:00pm ET. For all information click link below 2016 GAMECOCK BASEBALL NCAA CENTRAL NCAA baseball tournament 2016 preview After a year away from NCAA tournament play, South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook breathed a sigh of relief on Monday when things finally got back to normal. June baseball at Founders Park is back. Even though the Gamecocks are hosting another NCAA Regional, their first test in the tournament is hardly an easy one. Atlantic 10 champions Rhode Island (30-25) will trot out their ace, lefty Tyler Wilson, who leads the country with 12 wins and has given up just one earned run over his last 55 1/3 innings of work. “He would do very, very well in the SEC, on a weekend basis,” Holbrook said. “I told our team (Thursday), this is no different than a Friday night game in the SEC and we’re going to have to treat it as such.” How they got here South Carolina won the SEC Eastern Division for the first time in the Holbrook era, posting a conference record of 20-9. The Gamecocks (42-15 overall) are led by first-team All-SEC outfielder Gene Cone and second-team All-SEC pitcher Clarke Schmidt. Cone leads the team in hitting with a .356 average with 22 RBI and 45 runs scored. The junior from Columbia, S.C. enters NCAA tournament play third in the SEC in on-base percentage (.468) and sixth in batting average. Schmidt, who will start on Friday night, is 9-3 with a 2.96 ERA. Over 100 1/3 innings of work, the sophomore from Acworth, Ga. has 115 strikeouts to 22 walks. Signature wins South Carolina closed its regular season with a bang, sweeping Alabama in Tuscaloosa, to clinch the seventh division title in school history. The Gamecocks have wins over several NCAA tournament teams, including Clemson, Florida and Ole Miss. In regular season play, they were 8-7 against teams included in the NCAA tournament field. Last time in Omaha In 2012, Arizona beat South Carolina in two games, to snap the Gamecocks’ reign as back-to-back National Champions. Opponent to watch Holbrook’s decision to start Schmidt on Friday night is an indication of just how seriously he’s taking the first game of the weekend. Instead of holding his ace for a potential winner’s bracket matchup with Duke or UNCW, Holbrook is opting to pitch his best starter against Rhode Island’s best starter. Based solely on his merits, Wilson makes Rhode Island the opponent to watch for South Carolina. The Rams have a team batting average of .263, which is the lowest mark of the four teams in the Columbia Regional. However, they’ve been on fire at the plate since sweeping La Salle by a combined score of 20-6. In A-10 tournament play, Rhode Island outscored its opponents, 38-7.

He has 115 strikeouts to just 22 walks with opponents batting .242 against him. He became the first Gamecock pitcher since Michael Roth in 2011 to reach the single-season 100-strikeout total. Schmidt is second in the SEC behind teammate Braden Webb with 115 strikeouts, is tied for fourth in wins, fourth in innings pitched and 12th in ERA. Schmidt was strong in SEC games with a 5-2 record and a 3.72 ERA in the league. He had 76 strikeouts in 67.2 innings pitched in the league.

Schmidt won four games last month and struck out 46 batters in 37.0 innings pitched with a 2.19 ERA. Founded in 1962, the NCBWA is dedicated to the advancement of college baseball.
