With a 3-2 victory at Clemson on Saturday, Florida State’s Mike Martin became the all-time winningest coach in the history of college baseball.

Martin eclipsed former Texas coach Augie Garrido, who compiled a 1,975-951-9 record from 1969-2016. Garrido spent 20 of his 48-year coaching career at Texas. He also won two of his five NCAA titles while leading the Longhorns.

Martin is 1,976-708-4 at Florida State, a program he has led since 1980. He has guided the Seminoles to 16 College World Series appearances. A NCAA championship, however, is one of the few things missing from Martin’s resume.

In 14 meetings between the legendary coaches, Garrido went 10-4. Garrido became the biggest winner among NCAA Division I coaches with a 6-5 win over the Seminoles on June 9, 2003. (He set the record for coaches across all classifications against Texas State on March 25, 2014).
