“So much fun”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

It was great to see the River Dogs play although it was raining and cold and a little bit windy. It was fun and very family orientated. The River Dogs and the Park is a great place to go to see a game.

“Come See the Riverdogs!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Great stadium especially if you are a NY Yankees fan as the Riverdogs are a Class A affiliate of the pro team. Great fun and a great value.

“This is what baseball used to be”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Not a bad seat to be found, very reasonable prices, and all the fun that is baseball on a summer day. Even the food/alcohol is appropriately priced, which is a big plus. Keep an eye out for special events and special pricing. Although A-Rod did play a game at the stadium last summer (the Charleston River Dogs is affiliated with the Yankees), remember that this is MINOR LEAGUE baseball. If you want a different experience, drive up to the Bronx, max out your credit card, and bring binoculars. The players were friendly and accessible. It looked like they were having a good time out on the field, which is what baseball is (or should be) about. The only negative I have to say is the parking. Free, but we where there on a busy night, and it seemed disorganized. We just abandoned our car on a patch of grass outside the stadium, and were thankful we were NOT in the Bronx. It was right there where we left it when the game ended. Which was nice.

“Afordable family fun!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We love going to the Joe! The food will not disappoint and every seat is a good seat! Friday night games usually end with fireworks! The tickets are not expensive and they have fun stuff for the kids to do!

The stadium is a great venue for a baseball game. Gnats are bad but hey that's Charleston in the spring and summer.
