CHARLESTON, S.C. - The Charleston RiverDogs are constantly cooking up the zaniest promotions while playing in one of the most picturesque ballparks in baseball (#nofilter). You don't need a Buzzfeed quiz to tell you where you should be this week as the Dogs are back for a weeklong homestand starting on Wednesday at The Joe.

 

The Charleston club will first host the Delmarva Shorebirds for a three-game tilt followed by a four-gamer against the Hickory Crawdads. Here's the top seven reasons to spend your week #DownAtTheJoe:

 

 

  1. Wednesday, July 11, 7:05 p.m.: Bullpenning Night/ #WayBackWednesday: Listen to your dad complain about the long-forgotten complete game and the rubber arm heroes of the past as the RiverDogs celebrate the increasing bullpen usage in baseball. The RiverDogs will turn the spotlight on their own bullpen as well, featuring a red-carpet introduction of the Charleston relief corps pregame, and highlight some of their former stars who helped the Yankees bullpen their way through the 2017 AL Wild Card Game. Former R'Dog innings-eater and Major Leaguer Dan Wheeler will also be on hand to sign autographs as part of a Way Back Wednesday presented by Kirkman Broadcasting and ABC News 4 as the Dogs suit up in their purple and teal throwbacks. Fans can take advantage of $4 throwback prices to the 1994 inaugural season courtesy of Harris Teeter. The Charleston front office will bring the hook all night long as they relieve their PA announcer, ushers, interns, concession staff, and more. Brian Kenny, your tickets will be at the will call window.

  • Thursday, July 12, 7:05 p.m.: Buzzfeed Night/Thirsty Thursday: Do you find yourself constantly taking quizzes to assess your personality type? Are GIFs the only way you know how to express your feelings? Is making a top-25 list honestly just the easiest way to organize your thoughts? It's not clickbait; it's the RiverDogs' Buzzfeed Night at The Joe, complete with a Budweiser Thirsty Thursday presented by 95SX. As they enjoy dollar beers in the Ashley View Pub with the musical stylings of DJ Natty Heavy, fans can take their very own RiverDogs Buzzfeed quizzes answering deep questions like "Which RiverDog Are You?," "Which Charlie logo is so you?," and "Who is your RiverDogs celebrity crush?" (Spoiler: it's Aaron Judge).

  • Friday, July 13, 7:05 p.m.: Friday Fireworks/Domestic Violence Awareness: Local organizations from the Lowcountry will take part to raise awareness for domestic violence. The RiverDogs will auction off a Joe Torre signed baseball and jersey with all proceeds going toward domestic violence organizations. The first 500 fans at the gates will receive a Topps baseball card pack which will include a Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation individual card. The night will wrap up with Home Telecom Friday Fireworks presented by WEZL and Live 5 News, featuring a women empowerment playlist. It's also a Red Shirt Friday at The Joe; fans that wear red can save a buck at the gate with the option to donate that dollar to the Palmetto Military Support Group.

  • Saturday, July 14, 6:05 p.m.: Postgame T-Shirt Toss: Your RiverDogs wardrobe isn't complete until you get your hands on one of the 1,000 t-shirts commemorating the club's "175th season in dog years" that the RiverDogs will toss into the crowd following the series opener against Hickory. It's all part of a "Saturdays Live at The Joe" presentation presented by NASH FM and Fox 24 as you take in the postgame sunset sure to blow up your Insta feed. Fans are also encouraged to bring canned goods to donate to the BUSH's Food Drive; every fan that donates two or more canned food items will receive a complementary grandstand voucher and be entered to win four tickets to the Jim Gaffigan show at the North Charleston Coliseum on August 17.

It's all part of an MUSC Health Family Sunday, meaning kids eat free, run the bases after the game, and everyone parks for free. Members of the MUSC Children's Health Kids Club (12 and under) also get in free. You'll be on your way to The Joe like…
