The Greenville Astros, an Appalachian Rookie League affiliate of the Houston Astros play at Pioneer Park, which was built in 2004. The stadium is located on the Tusculum College campus and is shared by the college. This is a crisp, clean, all brick ballpark. The team moved here in 2004. The game was scheduled for 6 pm, but with a 1 1/2 hour rain delay did not begin until 7:35 pm. The Astros were playing the Danville Braves and won 9-1. The box score was Braves R-1, H-7, E-2 and Astros R-9, H-15, E-0. The field lines are RF & LF-330' and CF-400'. The paid attendance was 1851. Because it was raining lightly when we went in I forgot to take the outside picture. It was dark when I remembered, but the picture came out OK. Before pulling the tarp two of the grounds crew pushed some of the excess water off the tarp. Time to pull the tarp and Lynsi House in red shirt, General Manager, was out working with everyone else. They pulled the tarp once when it was just drizzling and then put it back on. By the time they pulled it again the excess water was completely gone, so the field has great drainage. Note the bump-out in the wall where the tarp is stored. First time we have seen this. Because of the rain delay the fans were offered $1 hotdogs and $2 soft drinks and beer. The first player to hit a home run this season is shown crossing homeplate. Note the dirt flying up behind homeplate on the foul ball picture. Tennessee Tex is the mascot. We won a free pizza coupon, but gave it away to a local family. Jim caught a soft Greenville baseball that was player autographed and gave it to the young boy of the family who we gave the pizza coupon to. There is a small room next to the team store that has information about baseball in Greenville over the years. It features two local players who were in the majors in the mid-1900s and information about Tusculum College early baseball. 2004 Logos.
