“On the 175th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention that launched the women’s rights movement, the Charleston Dirty Birds, Spa Bliss and other community partners will celebrate the many ways women make a difference in our community tonight. The celebration starts soon after the gates of GoMart Ballpark open at 5:30 p.m.,” officials said.

The Charleston Dirty Birds are also celebrating their Latin Identity, Pájaros Sucios de Charleston, ton five Thursdays during the 2023 season.

“This is an amazing addition to our 2023 promotional lineup. We’re excited to be able to celebrate the local Latin community throughout the season,” said Dirty Birds’ General Manager, Jeremy Taylor.

The Pájaros Sucios is a Day of the Dead-themed evolution of the original Dirty Birds mascot. The logo retains the blue eyes and orange beak, and the headlamp now features a candle, symbolic of the traditions that make the Day of the Dead the cultural icon it is. The name, Pájaros Sucios, translates to ‘Dirty Birds’ in Spanish. Pronunciation: PAH-HAH-ROH SOO-SYOH

The idea of the Dirty Birds’ Latin Identity originated from Minor League Baseball’s Copa de la Diversion (“Fun Cup”). This is the first year the Dirty Birds are introducing their Latin Identity, and the team wears specially designed jerseys and hats for each of these games featuring the Pájaros Sucios name and logo.

“Creating a promotional element that involves the celebration of the Latin Community within the game of baseball has been a huge part of this process,” said Manager of EntertainmentEden Douglas. “We wish to celebrate all members of the Latin Community and highlight those in Charleston as well as the members of our roster.”

Remaining Pájaros Sucios Dates are as follows:

Thursday, July 20

Thursday, August 24

Thursday, September 7
