#61 Jimmy Key

RELENTLESS - showing or promising no abatement of severity, intensity, strength, or pace

Senior year in high school Jimmy had a 10–0 record, and had nine shutouts and a 0.30 ERA. 
He was also an excellent hitter, batting .410 with 11 home runs and 35 RBIs in his high school career.

In 1982 he became the only Clemson player to be a member of the first-team All-ACC in two positions (pitcher and DH).
At Clemson Key posted a 9–3 record and 2.79 ERA, and batted .300 with 21 doubles. 
He pitched the opening game of the 1980 College World Series.

He then went on to do some great stuff in the Majors.

Pretty good golfer too.
