Columbia, SC (WLTX) - USC retired former head baseball coach Ray Tanner's jersey, just one of several tributes to the championship coach made before the start of the 2013 season.

A ceremony was held on the field of Carolina Stadium before the USC-Liberty game began Friday.

Tanner, joined by his family, watched as a tarp was pulled down along the outfield wall. When it came down, it showed a baseball with the number "1" on it and Tanner's name above it.

The jersey is the first ever retired by the USC baseball program.

Here's the video they played before the game--that Justin King guy is awesome at what he does.

And deservedly so. I'm a big Tanner fan. Much respect for the South Carokina program.

I think SC's string of consecutive Regional, Super Regional, and CWS wins will be one of the most under-rated streaks in sports history.

Especially with baseball being such a fickle sport.

Not only that but he also did it in two entirely different eras of the sport with the changing of the bars. Saying its impressive is almost an understatement. He'll the Arizona coach last year joked about how nice it was to be apart of the Ray Tanner Invitational in Omaha. The guy will forever be a USC legend.
