Why the RiverDogs love Mayor Riley:

Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park, need we say more?

The cathedral of memories known throughout the Lowcountry as The Joe, sitting on the banks of the Ashley providing summer breezes and fun while contributing to Mayor Riley’s vision for this beautiful city is one of the reasons why we love Joe.

Yes, we love his passion for baseball and his passion for the community, but his vision to bring the two together in such unparalleled success while being hugged, patted on the back side, tackled and lifted up off the ground by Bill Murray — the annual rite of passage to start the baseball season/summer as much as Spring Training is a close second to why we love Joe.
