The Charleston RiverDogs are a minor league baseball team based in Charleston, South Carolina. The team plays in the Class Single-A South Atlantic League and are an affiliate of the New York Yankees. Their home stadium is at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park. The majority owner is Marvin Goldklang who also owns a stake in five other minor league baseball teams throughout the country. A RiverDog is not a specific type of dog, rather, it is any type of dog that lives within a half-mile radius of a river. In the late 1970s, the Goldklang family purchased a chocolate lab, "Chazz." After their neighbors began calling Taco a "RiverDog," the Goldklang family took a liking to it and decided to change the name of Charleston's Single-A baseball team. To this day, the team mascot, "Charlie T. RiverDog" is loosely based on the Goldklang's late and beloved family dog, Taco.
