Charles Kelly gets spiked baseball for Florida State's shutout

FSU’s spiked baseball, given to Charles Kelly in 2015

So this is a pretty cool thing that Chip Baker, of FSU baseball does when Florida State football gets a shutout. A large spike is driven in to the ball, and Baker dresses up the ball with the score of the game, and the previous results. The ball is then given to the defensive coordinator. Mickey Andrews earned 14, Mark Stoops five, and Jeremy Pruitt 1. This is Charles Kelly's first. The tradition began in 1993. Read more about it here.
