Tiger Baseball, and the Road To Omaha, continues today as Clemson hosts College of Charleston. The radio broadcast for the game today will be provided exclusively by WCCP 104.9 FM in Clemson.

You can listen via the radio or stream the audio from If you do not have access to a computer or radio, you can download the Tune In App (it is free) for your Droid, Blackberry, or IPhone/IPad and choose WCCP 104.9 FM. This will allow you to stream the audio from the game on your smart phone.

Roy Philpott will give play by play with Tim Bourret doing color.

Monday's broadcast time is 1:30 with first pitch at 2:00. This change was made to try and avoid the poor weather moving into the area.

On Monday, College of Charleston took advantage of three Tiger errors to score two unearned runs, which proved to be the difference in the Cougars' 4-2 victory over Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Monday afternoon.

The Cougars improved to 32-15 on the season and won their first contest against the Tigers in 24 all-time meetings. The Tigers, who won the series 2-1, fell to 28-20.

The Tigers scored two runs in the third inning to take a 2-1 lead, but the Cougars responded with two runs in the fourth inning to retake the lead for good. College of Charleston doubled its lead with a run in the sixth inning and held on for the two-run win.

Starter Matt Pegler (8-2) pitched 6.0 solid innings to earn the win. He allowed five hits, two runs, and three walks with two strikeouts. Kyle Owings tossed 3.0 scoreless innings of one-hit ball with two strikeouts to record his second save of the year.

Jonathan Meyer (2-4) suffered the loss, as he yielded seven hits, four runs (two earned), and two walks with one strikeout in 5.1 innings pitched. Scott Firth pitched the final 3.2 innings and gave up just one hit, no runs, and one walk with three strikeouts.

All current members of the Tiger Letterwinner’s Association are invited to attend the Tennessee Tech game on Tuesday.  Each member will receive free admission by presenting their current membership card at the ticket gate next to the left-field foul pole.  Additional tickets for family members can be purchased on Tuesday afternoon for only $6.

Clemson is also hosting Little League and Clemson Baseball Camper Day on Tuesday.  Any Little Leaguer who wears their team baseball jersey or their team hat will receive a free general admission ticket, as well as any camper who wears their Clemson Baseball t-shirt.  Tickets can be redeemed at the ticket booths at either the left-field entrance or the entrance behind home plate beginning at 12:30 PM.  

Clemson and Tennessee Tech have met four times on the diamond, with the Tigers holding a 4-0 lead in the series that dates back to 2003.  All four meetings have taken place at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The two teams last met in the 2009 Clemson Regional.  Jeff Schaus hit a two-run, walkoff double in the ninth inning to give Clemson a 5-4 win in both team’s opener of the regional.  Two days later, Clemson eliminated the Golden Eagles with a 10-0 victory.  The Tigers also won both midweek games over Tennessee Tech in March of 2003 by scores of 7-5 and 8-0.

Jack Leggett has a 4-0 record against Tennessee Tech as Clemson’s head coach.  He was 2-0 against the Golden Eagles as Western Carolina’s head coach, meaning he is 6-0 all-time against Tennessee Tech.  

Tennessee Tech will start junior righthander Nick Price (2-0, 8.31 ERA) on the mound.  The Clinton, TN native has made seven relief appearances and three starts for a total of 17.1 innings pitched.  He has yielded 23 hits (.311 opponents’ batting average) and six walks with 15 strikeouts.

Clemson will counter with sophomore righty Mike Kent (1-1, 2.16 ERA) on Tuesday.  The Springfield, VA native has made 16 relief appearances for a total of 33.1 innings pitched.  He has surrendered 34 hits (.262 opponents’ batting average) and seven walks with 19 strikeouts.

Go Tigers!

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

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
