The Charleston RiverDogs, Single-A affiliate of the New York Yankees in the South Atlantic League, will play their 25th human-year season in 2018. If your lifespan is roughly one-seventh that of a human’s, that translates to 175 baseball seasons as measured in dog years.
“We are grateful to be a part of a city with so much history,” said RiverDogs President and General Manager Dave Echols. “While we may be Charleston’s youngest historic site, in dog years, we rank right there among some of the Lowcountry’s oldest institutions.”
The commemorative logo, which features a dog collar and tags, was created by Dan Simon of Studio Simon, who worked with the team on a rebrand in 2015.
