Clarence Kline needed only one name for those associated with college baseball to know the personality involved. "Jake" Kline began his playing career for Notre Dame in 1915 and earned three monograms while hitting .300 each year and captaining the 1917 squad. He still shares the team record with three home runs in a game. Kline returned as the Irish freshman baseball coach in '31, after spending time in World War I and in various baseball leagues. In '34, he became the school's 15th coach ... and the 16th would not be needed for another 42 seasons. Jake retired in '75 at the age of 81, coaching in more than 1,000 games and winning 558. He was voted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in '68, and the former Cartier Field was renamed Jake Kline Field in '75. Kline remained in touch with Irish baseball and was active in many Notre Dame functions until his death in '89, at age 94. When the Irish baseball team moved to Eck Stadium in '94, Kline's name moved as well. The official title of the playing surface is Jake Kline Field at Frank Eck Stadium. K CREW - The Notre Dame pitching staff posted the team strikeout record every season from '97-'99: 399 in '97, 456 in '98 and 478 in '99 (before 454 in 2000). The Irish have averaged 447 Ks the past four seasons (1,787 total), with the '99 staff averaging 8.38 Ks per nine innings-best by an Irish staff since '63 (the 2000 staff then set the Notre Dame record for K-to-walk ratio, at 2.50). Top contributors to the K crew in the last four seasons have included current senior Aaron Heilman (314 Ks in 279.2 IP with a team-record 118 in both '99 and 2000), first-round draft pick Brad Lidge ('96-'98, 143 Ks in 129.2 IP, 93 in '98), '99 graduate Alex Shilliday (third in Irish history with 265 career Ks) and lefty Tim Kalita (214 Ks in 214 IP, '97-'99).
When a hitter gets a pitch near his hands, he is "jammed." Also when a pitcher gets himself in trouble, he is in a "jam."
