This is a beautiful baseball park and great to go to at any age. The music is blaringly awful and there isn't a bad seat in the entire place. There are plenty of different food vendors and a great cheering crowd.

Founders Park is a state of the art area for Gamecock Baseball. It is one of the finest in all of college baseball. The gamecocks always offer exciting play.
