From the vault: Fear the stache! Today marks the return of Gamecock baseball. To get you in the spirit, here's the earliest known photo of a Carolina club, circa 1896 (courtesy of the South Caroliniana Library). Unfortunately, we don't know the names of the players, much less their positions, but it's easy to imagine the one with the whiskers as a flame-throwing reliever with an eye on Omaha. The 2013 season opener is today at 3 p.m. against Liberty University at Carolina Stadium.
