This Never Happened with the Greenville Braves

Posted in Uncategorized at 21:41 by Trey Austin

The minor league counterpart to the Atlanta Braves are out of Mississippi these days. When i lived in Greenville, SC, my home town, there was a big hullabaloo about the Braves franchise leaving Greenville because the city government wouldn’t spring for a new, state-of-the-art stadium to house the team (though there was nothing wrong with the old one). So, because of that, back in 2005, the minor league Braves moved to Mississippi.

Now that they are way down in the sweltering deep South, we see that one of their coaches has gone slap crazy. Take a look. I’ll just say this: nothing like this ever happened when the Braves were in Greenville.

    Trey, you left out the fact that after the G-Braves left, G’ville did build a new downtown stadium to woo a new (Class A) team to town. I guess it took the Braves leaving town for that to happen. I wonder what’s going to happen to the old Municipal Stadium?
