Tiger Baseball From 1979 (Part I of IV)
(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are from the 1979 baseball season and is Part I of IV photo selections from the 1979 baseball season that I will post over the next 4 days.
The above photo is of former Tiger Tim Teufel as he heads toward 1st Base in a game against South Carolina. The Tigers would go on to win 1-0, thanks to a great pitching performance from left-handed pitcher Brian Snyder. Synder would pitch a no hitter until the 8th inning when the Gamecocks got their one and only hit of the game.
The below photo is of catcher Dave Buffamoyer scrambling for a loose ball during a game in that same series with the South Carolina Gamecocks.
The date of this game is either April 14th or April 15th in 1979. The Tigers won both games against the Gamecocks during this two game home stand (1-0 and 6-3).
