The Florida State Seminoles baseball team represents Florida State University (variously Florida State or FSU) in the sport of college baseball. Florida State competes in NCAA Division I of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), and the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

The Florida State Seminoles are the second-winningest NCAA Division I college baseball program in percentage of games won,[1] with an all-time win percentage of .730. The Seminoles rank eighth in all-time number of total wins (2,757) and third in post-season wins. The Seminoles have appeared in the NCAA Tournament fifty-three times, advancing to the College World Series twenty-one times — and have appeared in the CWS Championship Game or Championship Series on three occasions in 1970, 1986 and 1999. They are the most successful collegiate baseball program in the United States without a College World Series championship. Florida State has won eleven regular season conference championships and eighteen conference tournament championships.

Florida State has had eighty-eight All-Americans, forty-one players inducted into the Hall of Fame, and sixty-one players that went on to play Major League Baseball. Former Seminoles who have gone on to have success include Bruce Bochy, Randy Choate, J.D. Drew, Stephen Drew, Ron Fraser, Johnny Grubb, Terry Kennedy, Doug Mientkiewicz, Buster Posey, Shane Robinson, Larry Rothschild, Tony La Russa, Paul Sorrento, and Woody Woodward.

The Seminoles play their home games on campus at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium on the university's Tallahassee, Florida campus and are currently coached by Mike Martin, one of the most successful coaches in the history of college baseball.

Program history[edit]

The stadium is named after Howser.

Seminole baseball is one of the most successful collegiate baseball programs in the United States having been to 21 College World Series in 53 Tournament appearances, and having appeared in the national championship final on three occasions (falling to the University of Southern California Trojans in 1970, the University of Arizona Wildcats in 1986, and the University of Miami Hurricanes in 1999).

Under the command since 1980 of Head Coach #11 Mike Martin (FSU Alumni 1966), Florida State is the second-winningest program in the history of college baseball. Since 1990, FSU has had more 50 win seasons, hosted more NCAA Tournaments, and finished in the top 10 more than any team in the nation. Since 2000, FSU has been one of the best programs in college baseball with more victories and a higher winning percentage in the regular season than any other school. FSU has made the postseason 38 years in a row. FSU also has two 60 win seasons and twenty-four 50 win seasons. FSU has hosted more Super Regional Tournaments than any team in the nation. In 2012, FSU passed Texas for the most postseason wins of all-time. In 2014, FSU set the record for the most National Seed selections (10) of all-time.

Traditions[edit]

Dick Howser Baseball Stadium

Before the home half of the 5th inning, a group of fans known as "The Animals of Section B", lead the Seminoles crowd in singing the Canadian national anthem, O Canada. This tradition is claimed to have started on February 13, 1988, during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, when FSU was playing Grambling State University. During the bottom of the 5th inning, with the score tied 2–2, a member of The Animals began humming the Canadian anthem. As the Seminoles began to rally for more and more runs, more Animals joined in the humming and the team scored eight runs that inning.[3] With baseball being a sport with a long history of superstition, The Animals have maintained the tradition ever since.
