Upcoming Homestand Highlighted by Visit from Actor Charles Esten on Kooks vs. Pogues Night



By: Riverdogs Media

Plenty of baseball will be played at The Joe over the next two weeks as the league-leading Charleston RiverDogs get set to host a pair of division rivals. The team is planning to match the high-level of play on the field with a quality slate of promotions for the duration of the homestand.

The series against Columbia will last from July 27-August 1 and feature eight games over six days with two doubleheaders. On Wednesday, actor Charles Esten will be at the ballpark for Kooks vs. Pogues Night. One night later, the RiverDogs will need help from fans to break a Guinness World Record. If that isn’t enough, we will celebrate the start of the Olympic Games in Tokyo with Olympics Night on Saturday. Here is the full lineup for the first week of the homestand:

Tuesday, July 27, Doubleheader beginning at 5:05 p.m.: Dog Day/$2 Hot Dogs and Beer/Boiled Peanuts/Joe Torre Safe at Home: The RiverDogs and Fireflies will open the night with the resumption of a game suspended by rain earlier this season. The contest will start in the bottom of the second inning with a 0-0 score and be played through nine innings. Following a short break, the teams will play a seven-inning game. During the twin bill, fans can enjoy $2 hot dogs and $2 beers. In the nightcap, the RiverDogs will once again tip their sweetgrass caps to South Carolina’s official state snack by taking the field as the Boiled Peanuts. The team will be wearing dark green uniforms with a peanut pattern on the sleeves. The cap features a peanut-patterned brim and the logo depicts a peanut relaxing in a boiling pot of water. In addition, four-legged friends are welcome every Tuesday so don’t leave them at home! Bring the pup along to the ballpark for each and every Island Coastal Lager Dog Day, when we encourage you to #TakeItEasy. This week, we’ll pay special attention to French Bulldogs. Also, Minor League Baseball and the RiverDogs are teaming with the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation to raise awareness about domestic violence. The foundation’s mission is to educate to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. Tuesday games are presented by 96.9 the Wolf.

Wednesday, July 28, 7:05 p.m.: Kooks vs. Pogues Night/Wicked Wednesday: Two tribes, one island. To celebrate the start of season two of a popular show filmed in Charleston, actor Charles Esten (Outer Banks, Nashville, Whose Line Is It Anyway) will be in attendance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch and perform the National Anthem. Our wicked ticket deal for this week depends on which tribe you want to claim allegiance to. Use code ‘Kooks’ for $5 off diamond view seats and code ‘Pogues’ for $5 off General Admission tickets. That’s right, the best seats in the building are just $15 or you can get in the ballpark for $3. We’ll also hold several scavenger hunts throughout Charleston leading up to the game and in the ballpark. As is the case for every Wednesday, we will celebrate craft beer and throw in some wicked good fun thanks to Wicked Weed.

Thursday, July 29, 7:05 p.m.: Thirsty Thursday/World Record Attempt: Is there a better combo than wings and beer? Wild Wing Cafe presents the world’s largest wing-eating contest. Purchase a ticket in Section 210 or 211 to join in the Guinness World Record attempt for the World’s Largest Wing-Eating Contest. The winner will receive a year of free wings from Wild Wing Cafe. One of the first 1,000 fans in the ballpark will also receive a year of free wings! Now for the beverages…$1 beers are available throughout The Joe on each Budweiser Thirsty Thursday this season! That’s right, you can grab a $1 beer (or two) no matter where you are in the ballpark. Don’t forget, DJ Natty Heavy will be dropping beats on the Ashley View Pub. Thursday games are presented by 95SX.

Friday, July 30, 7:05 p.m.: Red Shirt Friday/Post-Game Fireworks: Once again, on the final day of the work week, the RiverDogs and Boeing invite you to wear red in support of those who serve our country. On the field, the team will participate as well, wearing special red jerseys. The night will be capped with another fireworks spectacular presented by REV Federal Credit Union set to the tune of one-hit wonders. Friday games are presented by 103.5 WEZL.

Saturday, July 31, Doubleheader beginning at 4:05 p.m.: Olympics Night/Post-Game Light Show: Get two games for the price of one! The RiverDogs and Fireflies will play two seven-inning games separated by approximately 30 minutes. By the time this contest rolls around, the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be well underway (hopefully). Athletes participating in the games take tremendous pride in representing their country. On this night, that pride will be focused on the section you are sitting in. Each section will represent a different country and compete in Olympic-themed games between innings with the goal of capturing gold. We’ll also recognize Olympians from the Holy City throughout the evening. Following the game, stick around for a post-game light show featuring our LED lights at The Joe. Saturdays are presented by ABCNews4 and MyTV Charleston.

Sunday, August 1, 5:05 p.m.: Family Sunday/Holy City Sunday: Parking is free and kids will be invited to run the bases following the game! It’s a day sure to be filled with fun for the whole family. We’ll have activities for children throughout the game, both on the field and the video board. The team will pay homage to Charleston’s nickname as “The Holy City” by wearing special uniforms featuring an interlocking “HC” logo with a halo above the “H”. This Sunday is presented by Kickin’ Country.
