It started with a tweet.
On Dec. 28, Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center tweeted photos of babies wrapped in blankets that read “Beat Clemson, 12-31-16, #BuckeyeBaby.”
Soon several people started sharing the tweet on Twitter, asking Greenville Health System to “step up” and “make a move.”
GHS responded by saying, “GHS is #ALLIN. Every baby born at GHS on Fiesta Bowl Saturday will receive its own #Clemson apparel. #GoTigers #BeatOhioState.”
“We love all of our state’s collegiate sports teams, but we wanted to do something special for Clemson because this is a playoff game,” said Karen Potter, manager of public relations at GHS. “If Clemson makes it to the national championship, you may see some something similar happen on January 9.”
GHS expects between 25 and 35 babies to be born at four of its hospitals on Dec. 31. Those hospitals include Greenville Memorial Hospital, Greer Memorial Hospital, Laurens County Memorial Hospital and Oconee Memorial Hospital.
