Greenville Drive

The Greenville Drive is the Class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox and a member of the South Atlantic League. The Greenville Drive plays all of its home games at Fluor Field in the heart of downtown Greenville in the historic West End District. Prior to the 2006 season, the team played in Columbia, SC and was known as the Capital City Bombers. The Greenville Drive played its first game in Greenville, SC on April 6, 2006, and plays more than 70 home games each season at Fluor Field at the West End, a 5,700-seat baseball stadium that replicates Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. The ballpark has its own Green Monster, 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, Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline is sung in the middle of the eighth inning. Fluor Field also pays tribute to the Greenville area by utilizing reclaimed bricks from local textile mills to create a nostalgic look in some areas of the ballpark. In 2006, Baseballparks.com named Fluor Field Ballpark of the Year. 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.
