Awards
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1991
Seminole pitching great Gene Ammann threatened opposing batters from 1968-70. His final season with the Tribe, although only his junior season, was his most successful. That 1970 season, Ammann appeared in 17 games, starting contests, two of which came in the 1970 College World Series. Gene made his way into the FSU record books with the fewest losses in a season, and that 15-0 mark is a record that still stands. Additionally, Gene pitched an NCAA record eight shutouts and the first eight innings of a ninth early in the season. He had one string of 41 1/3 scoreless innings and another of 29 and pitched a no-hitter, the second of his career, in a 7-0 victory over South Florida. Those strong performances earned him an ERA of 0.66, still in the record books as the lowest ERA in a season. Ammann also claims the lowest career ERA with an average of 1.45 over his three years. Following his junior year with the Tribe, Gene was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers, continuing the tradition of Florida State athletes moving on to the professional level.
