The Greenville Braves, a Double A affiliate of Atlanta, play in Greenville Municipal Stadium. The stadium was opened in 1984 when the team was plucked from Savannah, according to the 20th anniversary commemorative yearbook. Tonight was Little League night and all of the younger Simpsonville (a town south of Greenville) Little League teams were represented. All the teams paraded around the field from the 1st base line to home and out the 3rd base line. Each team was announced as it passed home. On the field for the national anthem with the players were boys from T-Ball Bears and girls from softball Sting. The Braves were playing the Mobile Bay Bears and broke their 3 game losing streak winning 5-1. The Braves starter pitched a one hitter for 7 innnings.
