CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson and South Carolina will play part of their annual three-game baseball series at minor league parks in Greenville and Columbia over the next four seasons.
The schools announced the neutral sites Friday. The middle games of the series in 2019 and 2021 between the Tigers and Gamecocks will be at Greenville’s Fluor Field. The second games in 2020 and 2022 will be at Columbia’s Spirit Communications Park.
