One fitted a day, done my way. My love and passion for baseball and sports as a whole is translated through my collection of fitted caps. Most of these cranial gems I have collected through my vast adventures of Americas frontiers one dirt filled diamond at a time. Others in the collection have been purchased or given to me as gifts. Every Fitted has a team and every team has a story, these are my stories. The Fitted Diaries, One fitted a day, done my way...

You Dirty Dog
The cap of the day is the home fitted of the Charleston RiverDogs. The RiverDogs are the Class A minor league affiliate of the New York Yankees. The Dogs have been in existence since 1980 when they were known as the Charleston Royals due to their initial affiliation with the (you guessed it) Kansas City Royals. Along with the Royals and Yankees the RiverDogs have been affiliated with the Padres, Rangers, and Devil Rays. The RiverDogs play in Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park in Charleston, South Carolina; a facility built in 1997 which seats 6,000 fans. some notable RiverDogs of past are B.J. Upton, Carl Crawford, Rocco Baldelli, Josh Hamilton, and David Cone. Although the Dogs have never won a league title, they have captured 5 Southern Division titles in the South Atlantic League. The fitted in the picture has a navy blue crown and brim with a golden C with a river dog in the middle holding a baseball bat in his teeth.
