Florida State has a really interesting tradition after each shutout

 After every shut out the Florida State defensive staff gets, a special delivery is made by director of baseball operations Chip Baker to the Seminole's defensive coordinator. 

The tradition started back in 1993 when Mickey Andrews was calling the defensive shots (he earned 14 of the nailed balls total) and continued through Mark Stoops (5) and FSU's 63-0 thumping of #25 Maryland earned Jeremy Pruitt his first one.

The tradition started on the baseball diamond when a pitcher would "nail" his first shutout, and when the Seminole's stingy defense was pitching shutouts back in the early 90's, Baker started including the football staff on the tradition. Now every nailed ball given to the football staff includes the opponent, score, and past shutouts.

Pretty cool idea between the two staff's. See more to the story behind the tradition here.
