In partnership with Greenville County Schools, the Drive will be hosting Drive for Excellence on Wednesday, May 9th. This evening is all about recognizing high-achieving student-athletes in Greenville County, as each student-athlete with a 4.0 GPA or higher will receive complimentary admission to the game.
A pregame reception for student-athletes and coaches in the 500 Club will begin at 6:00 PM. Following the reception, special guest Landon Powell, the current head coach of the North Greenville University baseball program and former major league catcher for the Oakland Athletics, will speak to the student-athletes.
During the game, on-field recognitions will honor the top performing school in each sport, as well as the school with the highest overall GPA among its student-athletes.
Join us on Wednesday night at Fluor Field to help celebrate these hard working students for their efforts both in the classroom and on the field! First pitch between the Drive and the Kannapolis Intimidators is at 7:05 PM.
