The Charleston RiverDogs (Low A; Sally League) are making Riley Park a smoke and tobacco-free facility, a policy that will be in effect for all ballpark events. That includes Citadel baseball games, non-baseball events, and offseason gatherings.
The use of all tobacco products, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes and vapor mechanisms, will be prohibited in all areas of the stadium. Additionally, the majority of the grounds inside and around the stadium will also be designated smoke- and tobacco-free.
It should be noted that Riley Park is not the only ballpark that has adopted this policy in recent weeks. Last month, it was announced that Steinbrenner Field had become smoke and tobacco-free, a policy that affects spring training workouts and games for the New York Yankees as well as regular-season contests for the Tampa Tarpons (High A; Florida State League).
