Could Squirrels find new nest in Henrico?


Could the Richmond Flying Squirrels one day call Henrico County home?

The long answer: It's complicated.

The short answer: Yes.

The Squirrels, Richmond's Double-A Eastern League minor league baseball team, are once again looking for a place to nest, after Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones' plan to build a stadium in Shockoe Bottom failed to gain traction during the past two years.

Last month, Jones announced that the city, along with Henrico and Chesterfield counties, would work with the Squirrels and Eastern League officials to help the team find a site for a new stadium. His only caveat: that site won't be on the Boulevard, because he and city officials view the area around the Squirrels' current home (the Diamond) as being too valuable for a stadium.
