It's Throwback Thursday! The 1977 South Carolina baseball team went all the way to the national championship game at the College World Series. June Raines' first squad made a statement. After losing its first game in the postseason, the Gamecocks won four straight at Sarge Frye Field to win the NCAA Atlantic Regional Championship. The squad won three straight games in Omaha to advance to the finals of the CWS and finished with a 43-12-1 record. This Saturday, they will receive College World Series rings recognizing their achievements in a pregame ceremony.
