Fluor Field Facts & Figures
Construction cost: $16 million
Financing: Fully funded by Greenville Drive ownership. Although the cost of building the ballpark was privately paid for, $7 million in related infrastructure improvements were publicly funded.
Architect: DLR Group
General contractor: EMJ Corp.
Groundbreaking date: May 28, 2005
Was built on the site of an old lumber yard.
Owned and operated by the Greenville Drive.
Naming rights: On February 26, 2008, it was announced that Fluor Corporation and the Drive had agreed to a deal to call the ballpark Fluor Field at the West End. Financial terms were not announced but the length of the agreement is for 10 years. Fluor has multiple offices in Greenville and is a US-based company specializing in engineering, procurement and construction services for worldwide projects.
Was called West End Field for its first two years (2006-2007). That name was simply based on where the ballpark is located, which is in the West End historic district neighborhood of Greenville.
Has 18 suites. Each has a capacity of 24 people.
The field itself was named the 2012 Professional Baseball Field of the Year by the Sports Turf Managers Association.
Replaced Municipal Stadium (1984-2005) as the home for professional baseball in Greenville. The old stadium is 6 miles from Fluor Field and much of it still stands, although the stadium is now part of an amateur baseball complex named Conestee Park that was created following the departure of pro baseball from the site.
First game: April 6, 2006; the Greenville Drive beat the Columbus Catfish, 6-1, with 5,700 as the announced attendance. The game was played in 2 hours and 11 minutes after starting at 7:35 p.m.
Ceremonial first pitch: Knox White, Greenville Mayor
