      COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH, AP) -- South Carolina drivers could show their Gamecock pride with special license plates commemorating the baseball team's national championship under a bill approved in the House.

      The proposal passed Tuesday honors the University of South Carolina's 2010 team that won the College World Series.

      The bill specifies the plates issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles would cost an additional $75. The money would go to the college's alumni association.
