Tigers to Play O&P Scrimmages

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Tigers conclude fall practice with three Orange & Purple baseball scrimmages on November 6, 7 and 8 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) at two different sites. Admission is free to all three scrimmages.

On Friday, the first scrimmage (nine innings) is at 4 p.m., at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson. The second scrimmage (seven innings) takes place Saturday at 10 a.m., also at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, prior to Clemson’s football game at 3:30 p.m., against Florida State at Memorial Stadium. The final scrimmage (nine innings) is Sunday at 2 p.m., at Fluor Field in Greenville, S.C. It is the third straight year Clemson plays a fall scrimmage at Fluor Field, home of the Greenville Drive minor league team.

“We’ve had a great fall practice season and we’re really excited about playing three Orange & Purple scrimmages,” said head coach Monte Lee. “We’re looking forward to playing the Saturday of the Florida State football game in front of a big crowd at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, then wrapping up the weekend in Greenville at Fluor Field, playing at one of the best minor league parks in the country. We’re also excited about having our fanbase in Greenville watch the 2016 team in action.”

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 are excited to once again extend our partnership with Clemson University and its baseball program to host one of the games of the Orange & Purple scrimmages at Fluor Field,” said Drive general manager Eric Jarinko. “The Drive looks forward to welcoming head coach Monte Lee to Fluor Field in his new role as the Tigers’ head coach. This will also be a great opportunity for fans to get an early look at the 2016 team, which is scheduled to once again play several regular-season games at Fluor Field.”
