Greenville Drive – Cool and Cheap Minor League Baseball Fun

July 7, 2008

Over the 4th of July weekend and on our way back to Charlotte from Atlanta, we stopped in Greenville for a Saturday night Greenville Drive Baseball game.

We arrived at the park about three hours early to check it out. We watched batting practice for a few minutes through the gates. We left the ball park to go down town for an hour, crossed over railroad tracks and noticed three old guys (70+) shagging batting practice balls over the right field fence so we decided to go join them.

They were not thrilled we joined them. I don’t think. Later, one nicely said that more balls fly into another area. We were not sure if he was being helpful or just wanting us to move to another area. We tried the other area and my son did get a ball.

HERE IS THE DEAL: The tickets were $5. The stadium was nice. There was a nice bar/restaurant just outside of it. It was a cool and cheap experience.
