    FSU legend makes final UF stop
    Gvl Sun By Pat Dooley
    The Mike Martin Farewell Tour hits Gainesville tonight.
    The iconic Florida State baseball coach — who is retiring at the end of this season — will make his final visit to McKethan Stadium when the fifth-ranked Florida Gators take on No. 10 Florida State at 6:30 p.m.

    Martin became the first head coach to reach 2,000 wins over the weekend.

    “Same thing every year. They win 40 games and Coach Martin has his team ready to play,” said Florida coach Kevin O’Sullivan. “It’s his last time coming here, so we’ll be excited. I’m sure this will be a packed house and rightfully so. “I’m just glad he got his 2,000th win this weekend. Don’t have to worry about it on Tuesday. He’s already got that out the way. But no, it’ll be good to see him.”

    As successful as Martin has been, he’s struggled lately with the Gators in the series that plays three games in three different cities.

    I think that the most appropriate farewell gift possible for our Gators to give “11” is a gift wrapped “L” so he will always be able to reflect on his many trips to the Mac—:)

    It would be really nice to send 11 packing with 11 in a row; I know that's asking a lot, but it's still in play.

    Go GATORS!

    He stepped on the line walking back to the dugout on one of his trips to the mound. Maybe that angered the baseball gods and they opened up a can of whoop a$$ on FSU. Maybe he should wear his glasses when visiting the mound.

    Why did we give him golf gear and a cruise? Alligator dung would’ve been better.
