In honor of Green Day and Greenville’s birthday celebration, Drive players will wear special green uniforms and caps on Green Day.

The Drive is selling a special edition GVL tee for the night and you can purchase it HERE.
The fun will start at 5:45 PM with a ribbon cutting for the official opening of District 356! This family-friendly dedication will take place right outside the Field St. gates in the middle of the new District and comes complete with the Drive’s inflatable games, face painters, balloon art, music, and more to celebrate the opening of this awesome addition to Fluor Field and the West End
When gates open at 6, the first 2,000 fans through the stadium gates will receive a commemorative Green Day t-shirt, and the first 1,000 kids will receive a commemorative Green Day cape, all courtesy of TD Bank.
In addition, Green Day Honoree Dr. Royster will be honored on the field just prior to the first pitch and again during the game. Read more about this year's honoree HERE.

On Sunday, All-Stars will walk in a pregame parade prior to the game and get a new RAS t-shirt. Students will be recognized throughout the game as we celebrate their accomplishments!
Don’t forget to stick around for Kids Run the Bases after the game, courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina.
