Richmond Flying Squirrels hosting Fan Fest at The Diamond tonight

It’s your first chance to buy tickets for the 2015 season and check out upgrades to The Diamond.

As the snow slowly starts to melt, hopefully we can finally turn our attention to spring. And what better way to do that than to look forward to baseball?

The Richmond Flying Squirrels are hosting a First Friday Fan Fest and Ticketpalooza tonight at The Diamond. There will be live music, libations, and a chance to check out the upgrades going on at the stadium.
