Although the Charleston RiverDogs have another homestand in which to entertain its many fans, the club is already making plans for the 2015 season as it releases next year's 70-game home schedule.
The highlight of the '15 campaign in which the organization will mark their 19th season in Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park and the 22nd as RiverDogs is hosting a dozen Saturday and Sunday games, 10 Friday outings and nine games on the other nights.
The excitement and fanfare of Opening Night (April 9) and an Independence Day celebration (July 4) are annual top dates and great opportunities to enjoy the fun-filled experience that is widely known as RiverDogs Baseball.
August will be the busiest month at Riley Park as the RiverDogs play at home 17 times, while July features 16 dates and June sees 13.
The season begins with a seven-game homestand (April 9-15) as the RiverDogs host the Lexington Legends of the Northern Division for four games and then the Augusta GreenJackets for three. The club will then venture to Savannah and Augusta before returning home April 23 with a four-game block against the Sand Gnats.
The ‘15 schedule also features nine games on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, and 11 games in April and May. There will be two games in early September.
RiverDogs fans will become familiar with Asheville the most as they come to Riley Park for a total of 12 games – including a five-game homestand late in the season -- while Rome and Augusta come to Riley Park for 10 games each. The RiverDogs will also host Kannapolis in a five-game block in early July.
“Even though the summer is officially not yet over, 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 2015,” said General Manager Dave Echols. “We have a great schedule for '15, 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.'”
