CHARLESTON, SC - The Charleston RiverDogs' "Fun Is Good" philosophy seeks to make each and every fan's experience a special one at The Joe. Judging by the Lowcountry's response, the initiative continues to be very successful.
For the 11th consecutive year, readers of the Charleston City Paper selected the RiverDogs as the city's "Best Local Sports Team."
"We are excited once again to be named the 'Best Local Sports Team' by the readership of the Charleston City Paper," said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols. "The Charleston City Paper is an integral part of our community, so this award is a big one for us to receive once again. All the thanks for this award go to our fans, because without them the RiverDogs baseball experience wouldn't be possible."
Known for wholesome family entertainment, RiverDogs games are a fun experience for people of all ages. This past year was especially special for the club as they donned new seersucker uniforms for Sunday games, brought back Disco Demolition on its 35th anniversary, gave away Bill Veeck "bobble-legs" and staged Rainbows Night while entertaining scores of fans on a consistent basis.
Whether it is the game between the foul lines, the tasty food and beverage options at The Joe, the unique merchandise available in the souvenir store, the Kids Zone or the always entertaining between-innings promotions, RiverDogs baseball has become synonymous for a great night out with family and friends in Charleston.
The RiverDogs' first homestand kicks off on April 9 as the Lexington Legends come to Riley Park to open a seven-game homestand. If you can't make it out, all games will be broadcast live on WTMA-1250 AM, the radio home for RiverDogs baseball.
