Greenville Joes name request turned down

Recommended Posts

I live in Greenville, SC home of Shoeless Joe Jackson who has the 3rd-highest lifetime batting average in the history of Major League Baseball. Our minor league baseball team needed a new name and they chose to call the team the "Joes". Well, MLB didn't think that was proper since he supposedly conspired to throw the 1919 World Series. We wanted to honor our most famous citizen but Bud rejected us. Now we have to be stuck with the really gay name, the Greenville Drive. The Greater Greenville area is home to BMW manufacturing, Michelin's North American headquarters and the International Center for Automotive Research at Clemson University (ICAR). :angry:
