When Jeff Ledbetter was a freshman pitcher and outfielder at Florida State in 1979, he blasted 13 homeruns. Four years later, he had racked up 97. Each of his four years with the Tribe were very successful, but to say that Jeff had a "successful" year in 1982 would be the understatement of all time. During his senior year, Jeff, nicknamed "Treetops" for his prestigious blasts into the pine trees behind the right field wall at Seminole Field, set varsity records in almost every category available. In addition, he placed himself in NCAA record books for homeruns in a season (42), homeruns in a career (97), homeruns in a game (4), RBIs in a career (346), most total bases in a season (273) and most total bases in a career (346). Ledbetter capped off that outstanding 1982 season by being named All-Metro, All-Metro Tournament, Metro Player of the Year, All-American, and Sporting News Player of the Year. Drafted in the first round by the Boston Red Sox, Jeff spent three years with the organization. Today, many of his records still stand in FSU and NCAA record books as a challenge to current and future sluggers.
