The Greenville Drive, Advanced-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, announced today that Mayor Knox White has been selected as the honoree for the team’s annual Green Day celebration, presented by TD Bank, this year to be held on Wednesday August 4th at Fluor Field when the Drive host the Rome Braves.
Each year, the Drive pay tribute to an individual who has helped make Greenville one of the most electric and dynamic cities in the country. Over the course of his more than 25 years as mayor, no one has had a more profound and transformational impact on our city than Mayor White. From the creation of Falls Park and the Liberty Bridge, the development along the Reedy River, Unity Park, the Swamp Rabbit Trail, and our very own Fluor Field, everyone across our City has benefited from Mayor White’s vision and leadership. The Drive are excited and honored to recognize Mayor White as this year’s Green Day honoree.
In honor of Green Day & Greenville’s birthday celebration, Drive players will wear special green uniforms and caps on Green Day, and fans are encouraged to create a “green out” by sporting green as well. First pitch is set for 7:05pm against the Rome Braves. The first 2,000 fans through the stadium gates will receive a commemorative Green Day t-shirt or superhero cape, all courtesy of TD Bank. And then make sure to stick around after the game for a spectacular fireworks show in celebration of Greenville’s birthday.
