GREENEVILLE, TN – Greeneville Baseball revealed its new team identity as the Greeneville Flyboys. This new identity comes as the Appalachian League helps streamline the Prospect Development Pipeline (PDP) in the partnership between Major League Baseball (MLB) and USA Baseball.
“I am so excited to finally share the Flyboys name with the Greeneville community! After a lot of research into the history of Greeneville and learning about the old airfield where the stadium used to be, as well as the strong history of patriotism in this area, we are thrilled to have come up with a name that honors both.” Flyboys general manager Kat Foster commented on inspiration behind the name. “We look forward to many years of the new Greeneville Flyboys and can’t wait to have our fans join us in this new adventure.”
Chris Allen, Boyd Sports president, said, “We are extremely pleased with the way the new logo and team name turned out in Greeneville. With all the history behind the name, we feel as if Flyboys is a perfect fit.”
The Greeneville Flyboys debut their season on the road against the Elizabethton River Riders on June 3, 2021. They will then make their way home to Pioneer Park to take on the Johnson City Doughboys on June 8, 2021.
