CLEMSON, SC - Clemson will play host to Arkansas in a best-of-three Super Regional beginning Friday at 7:15 PM at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. The teams will also square off Saturday night at 7:15 PM and, if necessary, Sunday at 2:00 PM for a berth in the 2002 College World Series in Omaha, NE.


Reserved seat tournament passes good for all games are now on sale and can be purchased by calling 1-800-CLEMSON. The non-refundable passes are $30 and can be paid for with check, Mastercard or Visa. Regional reserved seat ticket holders who have already ordered tickets can pick them up at the Athletic Ticket Office after noon on Tuesday, June 4. In the event that sales of the All-Tournament passes do not result in a sell-out, single-session tickets will go on sale Friday, June 7.
