The Giants’ Double-A team moves to Richmond and gets a new monicker:
“Flying Squirrels” was announced this afternoon as the nickname for the new Richmond Double-A baseball franchise. Also under consideration as finalists were Rhinos, Flatheads, Flying Squirrels and Hush Puppies. The new team will begin playing at The Diamond next season and is affiliated with the San Francisco Giants.
Personally, I like hush puppies. Not for a team name or anything. I just like hush puppies.
