Flying Squirrels Irish Night

June 23, 2017 was Irish Heritage night at the Richmond Squirrels ballpark.  The Dooley Division was well represented at the game.

Great night at the Diamond for Irish Heritage Night.  Those who left early missed a late comeback which fell frustratingly short
with the Flying Squirrels losing to the Rubber Ducks 9-6.  But apart from the play on the field, there was a fastball by St. Patrick (above)
and Vince Eikmeier’s stellar rendition of “A Soldier’s Song” prior to the “Star Spangled Banner”.  The quizzical looks on the Squirrels players faces as they stood at attention were priceless.  My guess is that on all their different paths to Double A glory, their games did not feature Irish being sung before the pitch. –recap by Tim McDonnell
