Citadel scenes filmed for Dave Matthews video



CHARLESTON, S.C. - Scenes from The Citadel campus as well as of the state military school's baseball team playing Wofford were shot by a production crew filming a new music video by the Dave Matthews Band.

The video is for the song "American Baby."

The crew visited earlier this month although there is no connection between any band member and the military college, said Kevin Rhodes, a spokesman for the college athletics department.

"The song is a song about all things American - baseball, apple pie and that kind of stuff," he said. "They wanted to get some footage of the campus and when they found out we had a baseball game, they wanted to shoot the baseball game, too."

The video was to debut Monday night on VH1.

The song is part of the new "Stand Up" album the band will release next month.
