The Charleston RiverDogs are a professional minor-league baseball team and Class-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. Check the upcoming schedule for August RiverDogs home games and opt for any game that isn't on a Friday. With your lower reserved ticket ($8), you'll have a seat that lets you hear the sweat on the players and smell the swing of the bat. Former RiverDogs who have found success in the major leagues include B.J. Upton and Carl Crawford, making each RiverDogs game a chance to see a future king of the diamond in action. Included in this deal is an $18 RiverDogs hat exclusively offered to VIPs—pick it up upon entering and discard the old-fashioned deep-sea diving helmet you usually wear to sporting events.
At East Coast Baseball Academy, bats crush pitches from deadeye Iron Mike machines, and spectators cheer heartily from bleacher seats. As batters step up to the plate in one of the four turf-lined cages, an extended silence segues into the whoosh of baseballs or softballs from the pitching cannon, and the sturdy nets lining the cages safeguard patrons from the wallop of line drives and the muddy paws of off-leash mascots. Beneath soaring ceilings, strike-smashing abilities continue to develop despite pouring rain or the tantrums of Jack Frost. In the facility's lounge area, a television and PlayStation system serenade proud parents, coaches, and bat sharpeners as they rest.
