What do you miss most about being at a Clemson baseball game

I will kick it off with a few:

Walking out seeing the manicured infield, green of the grass of DKS
Student section doing the "Heat Is On"
Guys near the visitor's dugout ringing up opposing team strikeouts
Danny Cannon’s golden notes

Add yours...

Yep. Especially the mid week games, you can hear it on the radio. Don and Qualk comment often and laugh about it... Pretty cool.

TU for baseball post.

The sounds of the metal bats and the overall smell of being at the ballpark. No college baseball really really sucks.

the puff of dust it creates . . . the constant chatter between players . . . the faint smell of oiled leather, or was that sunscreen . . . concession smells of hotdogs and popcorn wafting about . . . the game time conversations with friends, the endless sight lines of gently tanned Tiger Ladies . . . the immediate response from the crowd after the "ping" (and God, I hate aluminum bats) of a well struck ball . . . the deflation of the opponents when we "strike'em out, throw'em out" play ends their inning . . . the grass stains earned after a diving catch in the gap is made . . . a well placed bunt or simply hitting to the right to advance the runner . . . the sight of children scurrying after foul balls and the glow of excitement when one is procured . . . a single being stretched into a double by just playing hard and paying attention . . . the roar when someone goes "yard" . . . the excitement of a "walk-off" win and the "dog-pile" to the hero of the night . . . the congratulatory line of Tiger players after the win . . . singing our alma mater with the players . . .

The list of things I miss is endless . . . and their memory will forever be fresh . . . no matter how long I must wait to experience it anew, once again . . .

Reminisce...back in school, I'd go often as possible, sit with Mr. Henry (English), who always had a big bag of roasted peanuts...chew the fat/and peanuts and watch baseball. Awesome afternoons! He'd hold a preseason bar-b-q at his 'Walden Pond' sanctuary outside of Central, each year for the team. Great memories!

I have two grandchildren who go with my wife and I.
Just to see them enjoying a game I love best is worth the 200 mile trip to Clemson for baseball weekend.

Honestly I really miss the quality of players we used to have. I miss the excitement in the stadium and I mean real excitement not just cheering for the occasional bomb. I can still hear all the chatter and noise inbetween every pitch in the stadium. Today is just not the same. A lot of open seats but we still are top 10 nationally in attendance. I don’t think it is a reflection on Clemson baseball as much as it is how people view baseball as boring. It is not stimulating for most.
