Clemson’s Doug Kingsmore Stadium set a new attendance record on Sunday, hosting 6,636 spectators in Clemson baseball’s victory over rival South Carolina.
The previous record, which was 6,524 spectators, was set in 2016’s home game against South Carolina on March 6, the same day as Sunday’s game. 
“Well what a great game in front of a record crowed,” Clemson head coach Monte Lee said after Sunday’s victory. “I think we had three games in a row with record crowds over the weekend.”
The crowd was not the only positive note for Clemson this weekend, as the team swept South Carolina in the three-game series. 
Doug Kingsmore Stadium, originally named Tiger Field, first hosted Clemson baseball in 1970, and with Sunday’s attendance record it continues to be a staple of Clemson baseball.
