Saturday's game to be televised
Drive General Manager, Mike deMaine, commented on the announcement, saying, "The Drive is delighted to showcase Fluor Field and televise this premier matchup of two of the nation's top collegiate programs. This broadcast promises to be a big win for Tiger and Gamecocks fans, our Drive corporate partners, and all who appreciate the excitement of this great baseball event in Downtown Greenville."
While the 2011 and 2010 Reedy River Rivalry games drew 7,125 and 7,105, respectively – the second and third largest crowds in Fluor Field's history – this year's contest will continue to be one of the most sought after tickets in collegiate baseball.
"By televising the Reedy River Rivalry from Fluor Field, WMYA My40 is able to reach into and develop a market that we have not had access to in the past," stated Jack Connors, General Manager of WMYA. "It is WMYA's goal to build a regional sports network that features college, high school and professional athletics. Adding the Reedy River Rivalry to our year-round sports offerings that already include the Drive and other minor league baseball, locally produced college and high school football and basketball, is an exciting and highly credible step in that direction."
Joining Jack Connors on the broadcast will be Don Munson and Trey Dyson. Munson has covered Clemson athletics since 1994, when he joined the Clemson radio network. Dyson was a former Gamecocks standout from 1999-2002, and was the recipient of the SEC Boyd McWhorter Male Student Athlete of the Year honor in 2002.
Drive Co-Owner and President, Craig Brown, summed it up, saying, "This broadcast from Fluor Field will make it possible to share the atmosphere and excitement of a truly classic college match up with sports enthusiasts from across the state and region, who would not otherwise be able to enjoy this special Downtown Greenville baseball experience. Viewers who tune in will see two of the nation's most talented and popular college programs compete in front of a capacity crowd, in one of the most beautiful ballparks in the country."
