Force Protection Red Shirt Friday/ Post and Courier Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame Night/ Fritos Family Friday/ Piggly Wiggly Post-Game Fireworks

The homestand starts off with a BOOM, literally, with as it's another Force Protection Red Shirt Friday featuring Piggly Wiggly post-game fireworks. All those who wear a red shirt to the ballpark receive $1 off the walk-up ticket price and can show their appreciation for our men and women of the armed forces by donating that dollar to the families of those fighting overseas. Following the game the fiery pig's head returns to the right field wall to give fans the biggest fireworks display in the city.

It's our third and final Fritos Family Friday. Six lucky fans will get to take their Be Your Own Fan! experience beyond the bleachers with: ceremonial first pitch, PA announcer for half an inning, radio broadcaster for half an inning, play ball kid, drag the field with the grounds crew at the top of the 6th inning and assist Charlie T. RiverDog during the singing of the National Anthem. Fans also get 10 percent off all RiverDogs merchandise when they bring an empty Fritos bag to the park.

Fans of all things baseball and Americas Pastime should get extra excited as the Post and Courier presented Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame Night. Help us give a round of applause for this year's inductees as we enshrine the four legends prior the first pitch.
