Actor John Goodman was just in Charleston filming the new HBO comedy series "The Righteous Gemstones," which premiered Aug. 18. 

Now that filming has wrapped, the actor and voice artist — known for roles such as Walter Sobchak in "The Big Lebowski," Big Dan Teague in "O Brother Where Art Thou" and Pacha in "The Emperor's New Groove" — is no longer gracing the Holy City with his consistent presence. 

But he has taken a piece of the Lowcountry with him in the form of some merch from Charleston's minor league baseball team. 

Goodman was spotted over the weekend at a Yankees game sporting a Charleston RiverDogs cap. The RiverDogs is the Yankees' minor league team. 

The RiverDogs Tweeted a photo of the star, with the caption, "Looks like John Goodman knows his way around the RiverDogs merchandise store!"

"The Righteous Gemstones" airs on HBO at 10 p.m. Sundays.
