CLEMSON - Clemson's newest sport and stadium moved one step closer to reality Friday.
The athletic department received Phase I approval for the construction of a new softball stadium from the university's board of trustees, allowing the athletic department to select an architect and begin the design process, according to a press release from the school.
The softball program is on track to begin competition in academic year 2019-20. The school is currently searching for a head coach, while coaches' offices, player facilities and the new stadium construction are in process.
