Commemorative Baseball Honors South Carolina’s Consecutive College World Series Championships
The South Carolina Gamecocks recently finished off the Florida Gators in the College World Series Final to take their second consecutive baseball championship. In honor of this victory, Nikco Sports will be selling an official Gamecocks College World Series baseball.
The ball will come inside an acrylic case and be a limited edition of 2,011. The panels on the baseball feature the official College World Series logo, a team history section, an image of the Gamecocks baseball field--Carolina Stadium in Columbia--and a "Season to Remember" section that showcases the winning scores against Florida.
Additionally, Nikco Sports has announced a partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of South Carolina. Partial proceeds of the Rawlings Baseball will go toward helping children with life-threatening illnesses.
The South Carolina Championship baseballs will sell for $39.95 and are limited to five per customer. Each ball will come with a certificate of authenticity. For more information or to purchase the ball, visit the Nikco Sports site
A similar baseball was also offered by Nikco Sports last year in honor of South Carolina's Championship win over UCLA. The Gamecocks hold the distinction of being the last team to win the College World Series at the original venue, Rosenblatt Stadium, and the first to win a the new stadium, TD Ameritrade Park.
