The Greensboro Grasshoppers (formerly the Greensboro Bats and the Greensboro Hornets) are a minor league baseball team in Greensboro, North Carolina, United States. They are a Class A team in the South Atlantic League, and have been a farm team of the Miami Marlins since 2003.
The Grasshoppers play home games at Yadkin Bank Park (formerly First Horizon Park), which opened in 2005 and seats 7,499 fans. The team’s logo was changed to a cartoon Grasshopper prior to the inaugural season at the new ballpark.
The fans selected the name ‘Guilford’ for the team’s mascot, a giant grasshopper. Prior to that, all home games for the Hornets and Bats were held at World War Memorial Stadium, just northeast of downtown Greensboro.
