The Yard Gnomes brand pays homage to Greenville's rich sports history, traditions, and culture. The gold of their uniform and hat pay homage to the ECU Pirates, while the green echoes the official green of the City of Greenville. The wooden bat takes the form of North Carolina, with skull and crossbones marking the spot of Greenville, NC. As tribute to the legacy of baseball in the region, the Yard Gnomes’ font mirrors that of the legendary Greenville Greenies, who played in Greenville from 1928 to 1951. You gotta get yourself some Yard Gnomes gear to cheer on our newest team!
