Thank you to all the fans who tweeted along with us for #SCOpeningDay last Friday. It was so much fun to see everyone's pictures from the game and excitement about the start of baseball season. There were almost 2,000 total tweets that included the hashtag, according to metrics from Tweetarchivist.com. The most popular link shared along with the #SCOpeningDay hashtag was unsurprisingly the 2013 Intro Video, which has over 11,200 views on YouTube so far.

Congrats to Ann, who was our grand prize winner of a Chad Holbrook autographed baseball for her panoramic photo of Carolina Stadium that she tweeted with the hashtag during the game. Five other lucky fans won game-used baseballs for their pictures and four others won 2011 National Championship hats.
Fans also used the power of Twitter to vote for their favorite walk-up songs. Fans tweeted with the hashtag #SCWalkUpSongs and the player's last name to cast their vote. The winner of the vote was LB Dantzler. His selection of Justin Bieber's "Baby" seemed to be good luck - he sent the first pitch he saw over the right field wall for a home run.
