Clemson and Furman have met 199 times on the diamond, with the Tigers leading 138-57-4 in the series dating back to the 1896 season. Clemson’s first two games in school history were against the Paladins, both losses in 1896, which were the Tigers’ only games that season. The two teams have played at least one game every year since 1983.

In 2011, the Tigers won both games. On April 26 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, the Tigers blanked the Paladins 5-0 behind Brad Miller’s three-run homer and four RBIs. Then on May 10, Clemson topped the Paladins 5-1 at Fluor Field. The Tigers have won five games in a row in the series dating to 2009. The Tigers lead 12-3-1 in neutral-site contests, including a 4-0 advantage at Fluor Field.

Jack Leggett is 19-5 against the Paladins as Clemson’s head coach. He was also 29-7 against Furman as Western Carolina’s head coach from 1983-91, meaning he is 48-12 all-time against the Paladins as a head coach.

Furman will start sophomore righthander Jacques de Gruy (1-0, 6.92 ERA) on the mound. The Dallas, TX native, who will be making his first career start, has made 13 relief appearances for a total of 13.0 innings pitched. He has allowed 14 hits (.269 opponents’ batting average), all singles, and 10 walks with nine strikeouts.


The Tigers will counter with junior righthander Jonathan Meyer (1-2, 4.61 ERA) on Tuesday. The San Diego, CA native has made 10 relief appearances and three starts for a total of 27.1 innings pitched. He has given up 36 hits (.308 opponents’ batting average) and six walks with 23 strikeouts.


Go Tigers!

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
