Greenville, SC

 

Fluor Field at the West End is a 5,700-seat baseball stadium in Greenville, South Carolina that opened on April 6, 2006. Located downtown in the heart of the Greenville West End Historic District, Fluor Field is a top downtown attraction and the home of the Greenville Drive, the South Atlantic League Class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. Fluor Field replicates Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. The ballpark has its own Green Monster replica, a 30-foot high wall in left field as opposed to the 37-foot one found at Fenway, and contains a manual scoreboard. Fluor Field also features Pesky’s Pole in right field, and as is the tradition in Fenway Park, Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond is sung in the middle of the eighth inning. Fluor Field also pays tribute to the Greenville area with reclaimed bricks from local textile mills creating a nostalgic look in parts of the facility. Each season, Fluor Field at the West End hosts more than 70 Greenville Drive home games. The facility also hosts numerous civic functions, like the United Way donor recognition event, and special sporting events including exhibition games and college baseball games. In 2007, the Greenville Drive privately funded the enhancement of Fluor Field at a cost of approximately $15 million. One of these enhancements is a display of Greenville’s baseball heritage with information about players who were either born or played in the Upstate region, including Shoeless Joe Jackson. In this video, viewers get a look at Fluor Field during a Greenville Drive game and hear from Greenville Drive Co-owner and President Craig Brown and General Manager Mike DeMaine.
