  1. Gamecock baseball wrapped up fall practice with a scrimmage against UNC-Wilmington. Now, the Gamecocks can begin to turn their focus towards the 2022 campaign, following a 34-23 season this past spring, which included a trip to the NCAA Regionals. However, before the team picks up the weights and begins its offseason conditioning program, head coach Mark Kingston met with the media on Thursday to put a lid on their fall workouts. Kingston classified it as a “productive fall”, despite having “a lot of guys banged up.” He went on to brag on his freshmen hitters for showing, “a lot of good, quality at-bats during the fall.” Head coach Mark Kingston also predicted the Gamecocks will look a bit different this coming spring. “If I had to guess right now, we’d hit fewer home runs, but score more runs. We’ve got a chance to be more athletic and steal more bases. Fewer strikeouts.” South Carolina smacked 80 home runs as a team last year, but also struck out 545 times. The Gamecocks begin SEC play on March 18th with a three-game series at Tennessee. The complete schedule, which features the annual matchup with Clemson (03/04 — 03/06) and a home series versus Texas, is expected to be released soon.
  2. What Mark Kingston talks baseball fall scrimmage against UNC Wilmington The Gamecocks and UNC Wilmington played a pair of six-inning games at Founders Park. Carolina had a home-and-home with both N.C. State and Georgia Tech. The first game ended in a 7-7 tie as the Gamecocks rallied to tie it but stranded bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth. Andrew Eyster provided the biggest spark in the game by hitting a 400-foot homer in the first game. In Game 2, South Carolina scored five runs in the fifth on just one hit to defeat the Seahawks, 8-4. Braylen Wimmer had a two-run single for the lone hit in the fifth inning. “We saw a lot of good things for the most part, a couple things we need to work on,” Gamecock coach Mark Kingston said. “We started five freshmen in the first game, and I don’t know how many in the second game. Today was a big day in our program getting guys on our field playing in a game. The winning and losing is secondary to getting new guys on our field. WHICH NEW PLAYERS STOOD OUT Lot of the new players on the Gamecocks roster got a chance to play and did definitely have a chance to make an impact. Virginia Tech transfer Kevin Maddon started at third in the first game and second in Game 2. Madden had three hits including an RBI single. Missouri transfer Brandt Belk was 2 for 4 with two RBI in the first game. Michael Braswell and Thad Ector, the two highest-ranked high school signees in the Gamecocks signing class, showed flashes and Ector had two hits in the second game and played in center field.
  3. Clemson and Gamecocks series in 2022 will be March 4-6 with Gamecocks' hosting game one, game two at Segra Park in Columbia and game three at DKS.

  12. Ticket and Spectator Information Announced for Gamecock Baseball at Founders Park 12/8/2020 | Baseball COLUMBIA - The University of South Carolina Athletic Department has received approval from the South Carolina Department of Commerce and is excited to welcome Gamecock fans to Founders Park for baseball games this season. Per South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster's Executive Order of July 29, 2020, stadiums and athletics venues were permitted to open and exceed the order's guidelines if the department "can satisfactorily demonstrate an ability to comply with federal and state COVID-19 procedures and protocols to the Department of Commerce." Capacity for this season will be reduced to approximately 2,100 ticketed patrons (25.4 percent of normal capacity) with ticket pods of two and four seats. There will be approximately six feet of distance between the pods. Facial coverings will be required for staff and fans at all times at the stadium, and patrons also will be required to follow the SEC and University fan safety guidelines. For the 2021 season, baseball seating will be assigned by seat selection process, which will begin on Monday, December 14 at 9 a.m. Fans who had season tickets for the 2020 season or have paid deposits for tickets will be emailed a seat selection time Tuesday, December 8, before the seat selection process begins on December 14.

All concessions will be cashless, only accepting debit cards, credit cards and mobile pay options (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.) to ensure contactless payment. While the Athletics Department welcomes fans to its home events, it also understands that many fans may choose to delay their return to its venues. As part of the "Reinvest for Success" campaign launched on August 10, any season ticket holders who would like a refund of their 2021 season tickets and any ticket-related expenses due to fears of COVID-19 can receive one while retaining their right to renew those tickets in 2022.

  14. Baseball 2/11/2020, | GCF Staff Report Gamecock Announces Opening Weekend Rotation The Gamecocks will go with Carmen Mlodzinski, Brett Kerry and Brannon Jordan vs. Holy Cross. COLUMBIA – Head Coach Mark Kingston announced his Opening Weekend rotation this afternoon (Tuesday, Feb. 11) for the three-game series against Holy Cross. The Gamecocks will go with redshirt sophomore righthander Carmen Mlodzinski, sophomore righthander Brett Kerry and junior righthander Brannon Jordan for the first three contests. Mlodzinski will get the ball on Opening Day for the second consecutive season as he had a no-decision in the 6-5 loss to Liberty on Feb. 15, 2019. The Hilton Head native made just three appearances last year before an injury in the Clemson game sidelined him for the spring. Mlodzinski has a tremendous summer in the Cape Cod League and is ranked No. 7 in the Top College Prospect list by D1Baseball.com. Kerry is coming off a great rookie campaign, earning Freshman All-America honors by four different organization and an SEC All-Freshman nod in 2019. Kerry was 4-1 with a 2.62 ERA in 22 appearances and had 65 strikeouts in 58.1 innings pitched. This will be Kerry's third career start for the Gamecocks, as he had a no-decision against Valparaiso on March 10 and picked up a win in the regular-season finale at Mississippi State on May 18. Jordan was selected in the 31st round of the 2019 MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays. He attended Cowley County Community College in Kansas for two years and was named the Jayhawk East Conference and Region 6 Pitcher of the Year in 2019, striking out 74 in 61.1 innings.
  15. Kingston lays out Gamecocks plan for 2020 (AUDIO) Feb. 08, 2020, | sportstalk Gamecocks baseball coach Mark Kingston joined SportsTalk, Friday, to preview the upcoming season and the strides his club has made in the offseason. Kingston laid out his plans for the pitching rotation and what he hopes to see offensively from multiple junior college transfers. RHP Carmen Mlodzinski, who missed almost all of last season after breaking his foot, will return to anchor the staff and will get the opening-day start. Kingston said Mlodzinski had a great Cape Cod League season and was now “bigger, stronger and more confident” entering the 2020 season. Expectations are high for Mlodzinski’s return as he was named to the Baseball America Preseason All-America Second Team. RHP Brett Kerry, who finished last season with a 2.62 ERA, will be the team’s no. 2 starter. Kingston likes Kerry in that role as his propensity for generating quick outs helps rest the bullpen. Kingston expects hard-throwing junior college transfer RHP Thomas Farr to solidify the no. 3 starter’s role. RHP Daniel Lloyd will open the season as the Gamecocks closer. Kingston said Lloyd’s fastball is consistently in the mid-90’s and he touched 97 mph on the radar gun, Friday. Last year’s second baseman, Noah Campbell, will likely earn a starting role in the outfield, according to Kingston. Returning starters Brady Allen and Andrew Eyster are expected to man two outfield positions. Kingston was enthusiastic about his catching situation, highlighted by the addition of UCF transfer Dallas Beaver. Beaver, a left-handed hitter, was named a starter for the Cape Cod League all-star game and Kingston praised his leadership and defensive prowess. Wes Clarke will likely start at first base and multiple players will platoon at second base. Slick fielding George Kalil returns as shortstop and freshman Brennan Milone will step in at third base. Kingston heaped praise on Milone, “All he does is hit. So excited about him. A pure hitter.” The Gamecocks open the season next Friday at Founders Park against Holy Cross.
