At media day, Flying Squirrels share excitement for start of 10th season


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond Flying Squirrels hosted its media day on Tuesday and there are plenty of familiar faces, along with some local players, in the new 2019 roster. 

Squirrels’ Infielder Ryan Howard returns from last season. On Tuesday, Howard said he is excited to work hard and play in front of the Richmond fans again. 

“I just want to play as hard as I can, wherever I’m at and try not to worry about where I’m at. I have a uniform still and a locker so I’m thrilled to be here and play,” Howard explained.

“Obviously, I loved it here last year. The fans, the atmosphere, you know, it was great.”

The Squirrels will open the season against the Hartford Yard Goats on Thursday.
