Florida State baseball coach Mike Martin, or simply “11” to those who follow FSU and Seminoles foes, is nearing the end of his legendary coaching run which began in 1975. Martin’s final game may come in Omaha, setting up a potential storybook ending, or it may be in Baton Rouge if LSU can win back-to-back games.
In over four decades, Martin has obviously coached in many stadiums. The Seminole skipper, the sport’s all-time winningest coach, had some strong praise for the raucous crowd Saturday at Alex Box Stadium.
“We’re playing in front of some of the … NO. Let’s do it this way – the LOUDEST fans I have ever played in front of in 45 years,” Martin said after FSU’s 6-4 upset win over No. 13-seed LSU.
With the season on the line, Martin and the Noles can expect The Box to be even louder Sunday. First pitch is scheduled for 5 p.m. CT in Baton Rouge (6 p.m. ET) and set to air on ESPN2.
Mike Martin has been coaching since 1975, and he hasn’t heard anything like he did Saturday.
