JULY 20, 7:45 P.M. – Stop us if you've heard this one before: the Richmond Flying Squirrels are looking for a new home.

Could they find one in Henrico? It's possible, after Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones announced last week that he had met with Henrico County Manager John Vithoulkas and

In making his announcement, Jones indicated that the team's current home on the Boulevard would not be on the table for a future site, because city officials remain committed to supporting a children's hospital there.
