A Richmond, Virginia Community

The Flying Squirrels are Richmond's minor league baseball team. The team is a part of the Eastern League, and is the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants major league club. They play at The Diamond located downtown at the corner of Boulevard and Robin Hood streets. The Squirrels were previously known as the Connecticut Defenders.

The Flying Squirrels mark affiliated baseball's return to Richmond after a one-year absence prompted by the relocation of the former Triple-A International League's Richmond Braves to Lawrenceville, Georgia, where they are now called the Gwinnett Braves.
