ACC MEDIA RELATIONS

Steve Phillips (sphillips@theacc.org) and Justin Wilson (jwilson@theacc.org) are the baseball media relations contacts for the ACC office.


CREDENTIALS

Given the space available and the potential fluidity of attendees, credentials are issued on a game-by-game basis. Clemson’s philosophy is to include as many outlets as possible in the press box area and therefore presently plans to limit each outlet to just one on-site media writer per game. It is the responsibility of the outlet to determine the requested on-site representative of the organization.

It is also imperative that media members only request an in-person credential for games where attendance is certain. Credential requests from media members who regularly cover Clemson will be prioritized.

All media members are required to apply for credentials on a game-by-game basis. To ensure an up-to-date picture of both credential demand and the health/availability of requested attendees, credential applications open Monday at 8 a.m. for all games for the following Tuesday through Sunday as well as the following Monday.

To request a credential for a particular game, email Brian Hennessy (bhennes@clemson.edu) with the following information:

An approval/denial reply email is sent as soon as possible after review or deadline passing.

Media members must work from the designated media areas.

All Clemson postgame interviews are conducted on the second floor of the player facility at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Entry for this area is from above the first-base dugout.

See the SAFETY PROTOCOLS section below for acknowledgment of risk involved with COVID-19 when applying for a credential to games at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

See the WILL CALL section below for information on credential pickup information and timing.


EMAIL DISTRIBUTION LIST

Notes, stats, stories and other information are emailed out on a game and series basis from the athletic communications office. Contact Brian Hennessy (bhennes@clemson.edu) to be added to the email list.


FOOD & DRINK

Concessions vouchers for food and drinks are available for working media members upon request. There are drinks available for media members in the press box as well.


INTERVIEWS

All Clemson postgame interviews are conducted on the second floor of the player facility at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Entry for this area is from above the first-base dugout.

Head Coach Monte Lee is available approximately 5-15 minutes following the game’s conclusion. One or more players may be available on a case-by-case basis, as the players follow Coach Lee’s availability.

The video recording of Coach Lee’s opening statement as well as brief comments from players are uploaded to the YouTube page HERE.

PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY

If your outlet has interest in obtaining a credential for a photographer/videographer, see the procedure and request periods in the CREDENTIALS section above.

Click HERE for the photographer/videographer guidelines. There is patio space on the first-base side of the press box for television camerapersons to film. Positions are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Still photographers may take pictures near the playing field, but only in “lined-off” areas beyond each dugout. Positions are on a first-come, first-serve basis.


PRINTED MATERIALS

Clemson provides a printed roster for both teams, scoresheets and a final box score in the press box. Other digital materials, such as notes, season statistics and the media guide, are available at ClemsonTigers.com.


SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Media members are required to bring and wear a face covering in indoor spaces and observe distancing guidelines whenever possible. Media members are also asked not to loiter in the press box.
