'The Joe' (Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park) -- Home of the Charleston (SC) RiverDogs July 11, 2012

The RiverDogs were playing the Asheville Tourists. Both teams were in the South Atlantic League Southern division of Minor League Baseball (MLB).

 

The RiverDogs were Class A affiliates of the New York Yankees; the Tourists Class A affiliates of the Colorado Rockies.

 

The RiverDogs went on to beat the Tourists on the 11th by a final score of 9-3.

 

Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park is a stadium located in Charleston at 360 Fishburne Street.

 

The stadium is named after Charleston's longest serving (and current) mayor, Joseph P. Riley, Jr..

 

It replaced College Park, and was built in 1997, seating 6,000 people.

 

Nicknamed "The Joe" by locals, Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the RiverDogs, and the Citadel Bulldogs baseball team, whose campus is located nearby.
