South Carolina Baseball Camps

Founders Park

The University of South Carolina baseball program unveiled its new baseball facility Feb. 21, 2009. The $35-plus million Founders Park has a capacity of 9,000 fans and is the crown jewel among baseball stadiums across the nations.

According to Ryan E. Sickman with HOK Sport Company, the firm responsible for designing Founders Park, "I personally have taken great pride in giving the Gamecocks, what is no doubt in my mind, the best collegiate only baseball park in the nation. It is our hope that Founders Park becomes the standard of what to expect from a premier Division I baseball program, and a class act athletics program like the University of South Carolina."
