Shane Robinson, SO, CF, Tampa, FL

Florida State sophomore Shane Robinson has been unstoppable so far in 2005 and the Tampa, FL native showed no signs of letting up this past weekend versus VMI in a three-game Florida State sweep. Robinson hit .583 (7-for-12) in the three game set with four runs scored, 2 oubles, 2 RBIs, 9 total bases, a .750 slugging percentage and a .615 on base percentage.  He was a perfect 4-for-4 in steals and was also perfect in the field. He hit .667 with runners in scoring position and led the squad in two-out RBIs. Robinson started the weekend by going 3-for-5 Friday with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI. Saturday the sophomore went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. He finished the series off with a 3-for-4 outing that included another run scored, another RBI and three steals as the Seminoles have gotten off to their best start (6-0) since 1999. With hits in all three games, Robinson has hit in all 6 of Florida State's games in 2005. He has raised his average to a team leading .565. He also leads FSU in runs (10), hits (13), doubles (4), total bases (17), slugging (.739), on base percentage (.643) and steals (7).


Not only is this the biggest non-conference home weekend of the year with Auburn coming to Tallahassee but there is a lot scheduled at Dick Howser Stadium surrounding the game. The festivities kick off Saturday when 2004 World Series champion and Olympic gold medalist Doug Mientkiewicz returns to Tallahassee. The Gold Glove winner will be taking photos with FSU license plate owners before Saturday's game and will then throw out the first pitch. Sunday, FSU will hold a special pre-game ceremony to dedicate the home radio booth in the memory of Lee Bowen. A special presentation will be shown on the video board and Lee's wife Adrienne will be presented with a replica of the plaque that will be displayed outside of the new "Lee Bowen Radio Booth".


The Seminoles come into this year's meeting with Auburn leading the all-time series 61-38.  The last nine meetings between the two schools have been in post season play with FSU going 7-2 in those games and winning the last five.  The last meeting was in 2001 with the Seminoles winning the Regional series in Tallahassee in two games, 10-6 and 9-6. The Seminoles haven't played Auburn in a regular season game since 1984 when FSU took two games at home from Auburn (10-4 and 12-2). The Seminoles have recorded five shutouts in the series and have only been shut out once by the Tigers.  FSU currently leads the series in Tallahassee 38-24. Auburn is off to a 3-0 start after a sweep of Hofstra. Clete Thomas is off to another great start for the Tigers with seven RBIs and a .400 average. Arnold Hughley, who is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA, gave up four unearned runs in his first start and is expected to throw Friday. Josh Sullivan is slated for Saturday. The junior gave up a couple of runs in four innings of work against Hofstra. Sunday, Auburn is scheduled to throw Mike Felix. The leftie started last week and gave up seven hits and a run in 3.1 innings.
