Clemson Baseball In 1950’s
(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are from the 1950’s and shows a long ago era of Tiger Baseball.
The above photo is of Tiger leftfielder, Larry Wilson, connecting on a pitch against Furman in the early 1950’s. I believe this game was played at Furman, as I do not recognize this as the baseball complex from the 1950’s (which was located where Hoke Sloan Tennis Complex is now).
The next photo is of a very young Coach Bill Wilhelm dressed in a nice suit looking down on Tiger infielder Clayton Lowder, who was struck on the knee by an errant pitch.
The final photo is a classic shot of longtime trainer Herman McGee in the dugout during a trip to Omaha in the late 50s.
