Tigers to Play Three Orange & Purple Games

The Tigers conclude fall practice with three Orange & Purple baseball games on October 23, 24 and 26 (Thursday, Friday, Sunday) at two different sites. Admission is free to all three games.

On Thursday, the first game (nine innings) is at 4 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson. The second game (seven innings) takes place Friday at 4 p.m., also at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. For both games at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, fans are asked to stay out of any seating areas that are cordoned off by construction barriers, which include the orange seats behind home plate. The Chapman Grandstands beyond the left-field fence will be open.

The final game (nine innings) is Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Fluor Field in Greenville, S.C. It is the second straight year Clemson is playing a fall game at Fluor Field, home of the Greenville Drive minor league team.

“We are excited about returning to Fluor Field to play a game in the fall for the second year in a row," said Head Coach Jack Leggett. "It’s great to bring some fall baseball action to Greenville on a Sunday afternoon. We look forward to playing at Fluor Field every year in the spring, and this is another opportunity to get our fans and players around a tremendous atmosphere for baseball."

The Main Street gate at Fluor Field opens at noon Sunday before Clemson takes batting practice on the field. A concession stand Sunday will be open for fans to purchase food and beverage, and a merchandise stand will be open for fans to purchase Clemson apparel.

“We couldn’t be happier to extend our relationship with Clemson University and its baseball program as we host an Orange & Purple game at Fluor Field,” said Greenville Drive General Manager Eric Jarinko. “This will be a great opportunity for Clemson fans to get an early look at the 2015 team, and it will also be a chance for fans who miss the Drive to watch baseball in the beautiful setting of Downtown Greenville.”
