Default The Bullpen is Dedicated to Michael Roth

The weekend festivities will kickoff today with a ceremony dedicating the home bullpen to former Gamecock All-American Michal Roth. Athletics Director Ray Tanner and Cocky along with Billy Moore, a long-time supporter of South Carolina athletics, and his family will unveil a plaque beside the home bullpen officially naming it after Roth.

I just can't say how proud I am to be a Gamecock! Roth was a special special player and person. Do we know if they plan on doing anything for Price or Wingo? They were huge parts of our rise to glory too.

They were, but I think Roth is a guy that won several national awards.

Roth is considered by some of the long time Omaha sports reporters to be the best CWS pitcher ever.

I get sentimental thinking about those days when was coming out of the bullpen for us. Dude is an absolute legend.

Roth has earned it.
I'd almost call it the Roth-Price pen.

I never liked this...a big donation bought the naming rights to the bullpen. It worked out because the request wasn't crazy, but still don't like it.

If by winning National Titles, you mean crazy then ok.

He's saying that is is odd to name the bullpen after someone who is still playing baseball, and is still so young. He's saying that it could potentially set bad precedence to give naming rights to any donor with enough cash to spend, and the reason that it was allowed in this instance is that is was not beyond the realm of reason to name the bullpen after a player who was a cornerstone of two championship teams. He's saying it could *potentially* be crazy, if a donor had enough money and wanted, say, the "Weslye Saunders Weightroom" or the "Stephen Garcia Swimming Pool" and the school went for it.
