Always a good time and Thirsty Thursday is FUN! Come for the baseball, stay for the beer! And the children love it... the baseball, not the beer.

Great minor league ballpark. New York Yankees affiliate. I was there for a Riverdogs game vs. the Columbia Fireflies. The field is in pristine condition. Sight lines are great. If you are there for a night game and you are seated down the 3rd base line you're gonna have to deal with the sun for a few innings. Bring your eye protection. Food options were solid. Drink options were good. Gift shop was very cool with all kinds of jerseys and hats available for purchase. I opted for the Holy City cap. Wow your friends with trivia too. For example, a Riverdog is actually what sailors called the giant rats they observed on the banks of the Ashley and Cooper rivers. Keep in mind that this is class "A" baseball with some kids just out of high school. You're not going to see gold glove play and 500 foot bombs. My only complaint is that the food being served was for minor league baseball at a major league price. They should lower the prices just a bit. In conclusion, you'll have a very good time if you come here for a game. Keep an eye out. Perhaps one or two of the 30 or so players will eventually make it to the show.

Home Telecom had a picnic here for employees! Thanks Home Telecom!! It's amazing working for and with you! It was awesome; We had a really nice meal; a nice breeze; a good game (would have been better if the River Dogs had won) and WOW the fireworks at the end. It was a fun Summer Night of Family entertainment. Joe Riley park staff are friendly and we loved how they kept the crowd involved during the game. At the end of the game we walked out of the stadium and there was a young man selling sweet grass roses! What a perfect way to end our evening. Now we have the rose and a River Dogs cup to remind us of all our fun.

Had a great time at the park. The only thing I would caution people about is don't sit down the 3rd base line on Thursday night unless you like loud music for hours.
