Tigers to play Orange & Purple scrimmages

Clemson will conclude fall practice with three Orange & Purple baseball scrimmages this weekend (Thursday, Friday, Sunday).

The scrimmages on Thursday and Friday will be at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, while Sunday’s scrimmage is at Fluor Field in Greenville, S.C. Game times are 4 p.m., 7 p.m., and 2 p.m., respectively. Admission is free to all three scrimmages.

The Main Street Gate, the only one that will be open for fans to enter, opens at 1 p.m., for Sunday’s game at Fluor Field. After that scrimmage, Tiger players will pass out candy provided by the Greenville Drive staff to kids as they run the bases on the field.

The scrimmages mark the end of the fall practice season, which began on Sept. 15. Clemson who was 42-21 and hosted a regional for the second year in a row in 2017, returns two-time All-American Seth Beer (1B/OF), who is hitting .333 with 34 homers, 123 RBIs and a .506 on-base percentage in 125 games as a Tiger.

Clemson welcomed the No. 11 recruiting class in the nation (2018 newcomers) according to Collegiate Baseball. The Tigers open the 2018 season with a three-game series against William & Mary at Doug Kingsmore Stadium from Feb. 16-18.
