When the Charleston RiverDogs (Low A; Sally League) take the field at 5:05 this evening, they will debut their new Holy City jerseys. A uniform that will be worn on every Sunday game at Joseph P. Riley, Jr Park this season, the Holy City jerseys were a part of the new slate of uniforms that the RiverDogs unveiled last September.
Complete with a matching cap, the Holy City uniforms are tribute to Charleston, SC, which is known as the Holy City. One unique design feature to note is the pinstripes, which are a nod to the parent club New York Yankees.
Their exclusive use on Sunday home games makes the uniforms one of several weekly promotions the RiverDogs are hosting this season, which is their 20th at Riley Park. The promotion is about more than the jerseys, however, as the RiverDogs are striving for a different atmosphere for Sunday home games.
“There’s been a lot of buzz about the new Sunday uniforms going back to the end of last season when we rolled out our refreshed logos,” said RiverDogs President and General Manager Dave Echols. “Along with the new uniforms, I think our fans will really take to the Holy City theme prevalent throughout our Sunday games that have always been a great place for the families, religious communities, and baseball fans to enjoy an evening out.”
Along with the weekly Sunday rebranding, fans will be encouraged throughout the game to show off their famous Charlestonian hospitality by greeting one another and extending hands in friendship as they make their way to their seats.
In association with Charleston County Parks & Recreation and Y102.5, every Sunday is also a Kids Club Sunday where fans enjoy free parking and Lowcountry youth eat for free, enjoy pregame catch on the field, and run the bases postgame presented by CPI Security.
