SS Widmann leaves program
Clemson — Fifth-year shortstop Stan Widmann has left the Clemson baseball team due to personal reasons, Tigers coach Jack Leggett said.
Widmann, who graduated with a degree in sport management in December, has withdrawn from school and will pursue job opportunities.
"It's extremely difficult to see this come about, but I certainly understand his decision," Leggett said.
Widmann was a career .284 hitter with 30 doubles, five triples, eight homers, 90 RBIs, and 39 steals in 42 attempts in 194 games (191 starts).He was the starting shortstop on Clemson's 2006 ACC championship and College World Series team when he hit .307 in 67 games. Widmann also overcame a serious neck injury that forced him to miss most of '07. As a graduate student in 2009, he only appeared in one game (as a pinch-runner) due to lingering effects from a shoulder injury.
