Seminole pitching great Gene Ammann tormented opposing batters from 1968-70. His final season with FSU was his most successful when as a junior Ammann appeared in 17 games two of which came in the 1970 College World Series. He was 15-0 over the 1970 season a record that stood at the turn of the new century. In addition, Amman pitched an NCAA record eight shutouts. He had one string of 41 1/3 scoreless innings and another of 29 and pitched a no-hitter against 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 at 1.45 over his three years.
