License Plate Honors Gamecocks Baseball Team

Posted:
By Tripp Messick

You can show your school pride, with a new license plate, honoring the Gamecocks as the 2010 & 2011 National Baseball Champions.

It's being made available by My Carolina Alumni Association in conjunction with the University of South Carolina Athletics Department.

Legislation, authorizing the plate, was authored by Rep. Michael A. Pitts of Laurens, and Rep. Garry R. Smith of Greenville, both of whom are alumni of the university, and was approved by the state legislature last year.

“This is a great way for alumni and fans to not only show their support for the Gamecocks, but also to help build support for the university and its students in a meaningful way,” My Carolina Executive Director Jack Claypoole said.  “We appreciate the efforts of Representative Smith and Representative Pitts in supporting the university through this legislation, and thankful for the work of Ray Tanner, Chad Holbrook and their staff and players for giving Gamecock nation a continued sense of pride in the university with their team’s accomplishments.”

The tags will be available for purchase from the S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles beginning Tuesday, Feb. 19. It will cost $70 plus regular registration fees. You'll have to pay the fee every 2 years.

Proceeds from the purchase of the license tags will benefit student scholarships at the university.
