Although the GOP Convention in Tampa moves forward, the on-going downpour in the Lowcountry on Tuesday forced the Charleston RiverDogs to postpone their baseball game against the West Virginia Power and the much-anticipated Bobblection promotion.
The RiverDogs will battle the Power in a doubleheader on Wednesday in two 7-inning games that begin at 5:05 pm. The gates of Riley Park open at 4 pm, with the giveaway of either a Barack Obama or a Mitt Romney bobblehead to the first 1,000 fans.
Fans will be directed to enter one of two gates, marked for each candidate. At the top of the steps a bobblehead of the fans’ chosen candidate will be handed until one candidate’s bobbles run out. The first of the candidates to run out of all 500 bobbleheads will be declared the winner for the Charleston polling place.
The previous two presidential elections have been correctly predicted both locally in Charleston as well as on the national scale of the Bobblection promotion.
Though utilized during the season on Tuesdays, the RiverDogs will install a Two-for-Wednesday opportunity as fans can receive two tickets for the price of one for the doubleheader.
Fans that hold tickets to Tuesday’s game may exchange their ticket for either today’s game or the season-ending game on Thursday. Fans are entitled to a ticket of equal or lesser value, subject to availability. All transactions must take place at the RiverDogs Box Office and there are no monetary refunds.
