Take me out to the ballgame!
In Upstate South Carolina, we’re lucky to have our own minor league baseball team: The Greenville Drive. And I’m excited to share that the team’s 2016 season kicked off last night! Find out why you and your family should add a few Drive games to the top of your summer “to-do” list.
The Greenville Drive is a minor league Class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Its home park is Fluor Field in Greenville’s West End, a stadium that was recognized by StadiumJourney.com as the 68th best stadium experience in college and professional sports in 2014. That makes it the 11th best stadium experience (out of 160) in Minor League Baseball.
The 2016 season marks the start of the second decade of baseball at Flour Field. Before coming to Greenville in 2005, the team played in Columbia under the name Capital City Bombers. It played one season at Greenville Municipal Stadium before the stadium at Flour Field opened in 2006.
Yesterday’s game marked the first of seven consecutive games at home to kick off the 2016 season—first against Asheville, then West Virginia through April 13th. The team starts a four-game series in Columbia on April 14th. You can see the Drive’s full 2016 schedule here.
Tickets are available through plans or for individual games. Find out more about ticket plans here. Single-game tickets are available at the Main Street Box Office* or online here. Individual game tickets run from $7-$9, and you’re encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.
In addition to my work as a realtor agent with Keller Williams Real Estate, at the top of my list is enjoying all that Greenville, South Carolina has to offer—and that includes Greenville Drive baseball games at Flour Field. I hope to see you there at some point this season!
