February 14th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Tiger Baseball On Tiger Field In 1972

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are from the Spring of 1972 and show the humble beginnings of Tiger Field.

Tiger Field was completed in 1970 with the input of Coach Bill Wilhelm. It was also Wilhelm who had the idea to install the upward-sloping terrace along the outfield fence, which makes Tiger Field one of the most unique college baseball venues in the Nation.

The next photo is also from the 1972 season, when Tiger Field was in its third season.

Prior to 1970, Clemson Baseball played games at the Riggs Athletic Complex during a span of 54 years. Prior to 1916, Clemson played baseball on Bowman Field, which incidentally was named after R.T.V. Bowman, the first baseball coach at Clemson.
