2008 ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
Game 9
#8 Clemson 10, #5 Georgia Tech 4
May 24, 2008

GEORGIA TECH HEAD COACH Danny Hall

On the game…

“That was certainly not what we wanted to do out here today. It seemed like the last two games we were making mistakes and giving up home runs for them. We walked too many guys, we’d walk a guy and the next one up would hit a home run. Kinda disappointing the way it ended, but we had a great regular season and hopefully we will be rewarded on Monday.”

On chances to host an NCAA Regional next weekend…

“I don’t really know. That’s up to the selection committee. I believe that we have one of the best facilities in the nation to play in. I think our league is great. It’s the No. 1-ranked league in the nation and has a lot of teams capable of playing deep into the NCAA Tournament. It would be nice if they rewarded us, but we have no way of knowing that.”

On the new tournament format…

“I think there are likes and dislikes. I like the fact that next weekend; it gives the teams that play here the chance to be rested. Their starting pitching and relief pitching will not be overworked. Their team is not overworked because they are playing in a maximum of four games. I dislike that it doesn’t really give the true champion in a tournament. I don’t like knowing that when we lost to Miami, we had no chance to play for the Championship. (But) You look at the success of teams advancing to Super Regionals and Carolina going to Omaha the last few years, maybe that is the reason why.”

GEORGIA TECH’S Patrick Long (So. – 2B)

On hosting an NCAA Regional…

“You always want to play at home; it’s nice to have the fans there to support you. If we have to go on the road, it’s something that we will have to deal with. We’re going to have to play the hand we’re dealt, hopefully we’re rewarded at home.

GEORGIA TECH’S Zach Von Tersch (So. – RHP)

On pitching in a relief role…

“It was a little different. I did it last year but I couldn’t throw strikes at the beginning of the inning. It’s like starting – just gotta get it done.”
