In game-one on February 17, Dillon Napoleon pitched 7.0 strong inning and Keith DePew scored both Blazer runs in UAB’s 2-1 win over Clemson. DePew scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning on pinch-hitter Tyler Mims’ sacrifice fly. Napoleon and Ryan Nance combined to allow just four hits and one run. Napoleon pitched 7.0 strong innings to earn the win, while Nance pitched 2.0 hitless and scoreless innings to record the save. Clemson scored just one of its 11 baserunners, which came on Spencer Kieboom’s double in the second inning. Kieboom had two of the Tigers’ four hits. It was Clemson’s first loss in a season-opener since 2004.

In game-two on February 18, which was the first game of a doubleheader, Dominic Leone tossed 6.0 scoreless innings of two-hit ball (both singles) to lead Clemson to a 6-1 victory over UAB. Leone also allowed just one walk with four strikeouts to earn the win. Richie Shaffer hit a two-run homer in the first inning to give Clemson the lead for good, then Brad Felder hit his first home run as a Tiger, a two-run shot in the third inning. Jason Stolz led Clemson’s 11-hit attack by going 3-for-4, while Felder was 2-for-4 with a game-high three RBIs.

In game-three on February 18, which was the second game of a doubleheader, Clemson scored five runs in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie and held on for a 7-4 win over UAB. Phil Pohl hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to tie the score, then the Tigers scored five runs on two hits, three walks, and one hit-by-pitch in the eighth inning. Pohl led the Tigers by going 2-for-4 with a game-high three RBIs. Thomas Brittle added a single, two walks, and three outfield assists. The Blazers outhit Clemson 12-7, but they left nine runners on base. Kevin Pohle pitched 4.0 strong innings in relief to earn the win. He yielded just two hits and no runs with three strikeouts.

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million
