Tiger Baseball In 1977
(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s pictures are from the late 1970’s and show Tiger Field and the atmosphere surrounding a game day.
The above photo shows a game from 1977. As you can see, the first base stands at that time did not extend past the dugouts and bleachers were used for viewing. You can also see that cars/trucks were able to pull right up to the 1st base line.
The next photo is from a game against North Carolina in 1977 and the view is towards the left and centerfield area. In 1977 the Tigers finished fifth in the final Collegiate Baseball poll and participated in the NCAA College World Series. 1977 is also a year that the Tigers started the season with a 26-game winning streak, the longest winning streak in school history.
The last photo is also from the 1977 season and shows the bat girls ready to go into action as they kneel in from of the WSBF Radio Booth.
