The Charleston RiverDogs might close out the 2015 season tonight at the Joe, but we're already getting a look at what to expect next season as the team debuted some fresh logos today.
The familiar white and gray RiverDogs unis will remain mostly the same, with the addition of a new patch featuring the familiar Charlie logo biting a broken bat inside a "crescent moon" on the left sleeve of the road gray uniforms. (We're just going to let that "moon" thing slide by this time...)
Beginning next year, the R-Dogs' new batting practice hats will feature a brand new "floppy-eared" Charlie T. RiverDog logo, this time without his trademark broken bat. A floppy-eared Charlie? I'm thinking these caps will sell like hotcakes.
The big addition to next year's uniform rotation though are the all-new Holy City pinstripe jerseys that will only be worn for Sunday home games. Across the chest of the new shirts, brand new "Holy City" visuals gives a nod to the city's nickname. Along with hats bearing an interlocking "HC" mark with a halo, the new "Holy City Sundays" will be worn for the first time on April 10, 2016.
The RiverDogs play their final home game tonight at the Joe and open next season against the Columbia Fireflies (formerly the Savannah Sand Gnats) on April 7. Head to the park early and you might catch some VIPs taking BP.
