He is affectionately known as "11." The number which he has worn his entire career as head baseball coach at Florida State University. He has won more games than any coach in any sport. Ever. He has taken his team to consecutive post-season appearances more than any coach in any sport.
He has a chance to add to the never-to-be-broken set of records this weekend as the Noles head to LSU to take on the Tigers. At stake in the best of three series? A berth in the College World Series.
Today, I visited with Mike Martin as his team comes off a combined 23-3 beat down of the 4th ranked Georgia Bulldogs (at their place...ouch) and prepares to place in one of the most festive environments in college baseball, Baton Rouge.
If you missed it, I think you will enjoy ten good minutes with "11."
