RiverDogs Release 2017 Schedule
Heavy Thursday – Sunday game days highlights schedule



CHARLESTON, SC –With two more homestands and the South Atlantic League playoffs right around the corner, the Charleston RiverDogs have announced the 2017 schedule as next year’s 70-game home slate is released.

Marking their 21st season in Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park and the 24th as the RiverDogs, the highlight of the 2017 campaign will be the 11Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday games. Nine contests each on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and only eight on Mondays round out the schedule.

The excitement and fanfare of Opening Night (April 6) and the Independence Day celebration (July 3) are annual top dates and great opportunities to enjoy the fun-filled experience that is widely known as RiverDogs Baseball. There will also be a return of the “Legends in the South” charity alumni baseball game that featured former players from the New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves with a soon to be confirmed date.

“Although the summer is not officially over and we haven’t yet hosted the playoffs, we release our schedule early because we know that our fans like to plan ahead, and many are already scheduling activities for the Summer of 2017,” said President and General Manager Dave Echols. “We have a great schedule for ’17, and we’re already in the planning stages for great promotions, food and fun that fans have come to know as the ‘RiverDogs Baseball Experience.’”

May will be the busiest month at Riley Park as the RiverDogs play at home 18 times, while August features 17 dates and July sees 14.

The season begins with a seven-game homestand (April 6-12) as the RiverDogs host the Lexington Legends for four games and then the Augusta GreenJackets for three. The club will then venture to Rome and Augusta before returning home April 20 with a four-game block against the Asheville Tourists.

RiverDogs fans will become familiar with Augusta the most as they come to Riley Park for a total of 15 games while state-rivals Greenville and Columbia come to Charleston for 11 and 10 games, respectively.

Prior to the season’s opener, the RiverDogs will travel up to Myrtle Beach on April 5 for the second installment of the Battle of the Beaches, a preseason exhibition with the Pelicans at TicketReturn.com Field.
