Flying Squirrels and Fireworks

A lovely night in Richmond, Va for a minor league baseball game. The new team in town is the Richmond Flying Squirrels. The Double-A farm team to the San Francisco Giants. The Bowie BaySox the Double-A affiliate to the Baltimore Orioles paid a visit to Richmond and it was fireworks night. A near sellout crowd saw a great game but the Baysox bested the Flying Squirrels 8-6. And fireworks after the game. I was more of a spectator than a photographer on this night but here are a few shots..

Welcome to the Nutt House, formerly the Diamond.

Plenty of scouts on hand, its been awhile since I've seen a minor league game, I had forgotten how many scouts attend these games.

Only in a minor league park will you see the grounds crew dressed as a maid service.

Bowie BaySox win 8-6

Let the fireworks begin.
