Clemson baseball had an excellent season in 1954, finishing 17-7. This team started out being rated high before the season started and lived up to every expectation. And with good reason, the Tigers had such players as Billy O'Dell, an excellent pitcher who would spend the next 13 years in the pros. Also on that team was Doug Kingsmore, an All-ACC and All-District III outfielder and became the first Clemson player in history to hit 10 home runs in a season.

Because the expectations were so high for this team, the Tigers drew large crowds to the old Tiger field located at the Riggs Athletic Complex. The Tigers would go on to win their first ACC Championship that year and would participate in the NCAA Tournament.
