February 15th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Tiger Baseball In 1973 And Jervey Construction


(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are from the early 1970’s and show Tiger Field going through some major renovations.

In the above picture, you can see the construction of Jervey Athletic Center is taking place. Jervey was completed in 1973 and was renovated in 1995. Jervey was named in honor of one of Clemson's most beloved sons, Frank Jervey.

The 67,000 square foot building once housed offices for all of the coaching and related staffs for the 19 Clemson sports under one roof, a unique feature that places the center among the most modern of its kind anywhere.

The construction of Jervey backed up right onto Tiger Field and the playing surface in 1973. I would imagine that there might have been hammers banging and saws sawing during some of the games that year.

This next photo is also from 1973 and shows additional construction at Tiger Field. What is interesting about this picture is that you can see the top of the South Stands between the Jervey construction.  This was obviously before the South Upper Deck was built.
