GreenvilleDrive-Padded-155.jpgThe Greenville Drive are the Low Class-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. The Drive play in the South Atlantic League out of West End Field, in Greenville, South Carolina. In 2004, the team was known as the Bombers after the Capital City Bombers moved from Columbia to Greenville. The team came to be known as the Drive in late 2005 when the front office, attempting to separate themselves from the Capital City attachment, looked to connect with the history of the automobile business in the Greenville area. Greenville has been associated with professional baseball nearly every year since the Greenville Eskimos were formed in 1907. From 1968-1971, the team hosted a Red Sox farm team. In 1984, the Greenville Braves, a Class AA affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, came to town to begin what would become a 20 year relationship, ending after the 2004 season. Not only have the people of Greenville seen countless excellent baseball players come through their city, but they also hold the distinction of being the home of baseball immortal Shoeless Joe Jackson.
