The Richmond Flying Squirrels have won the Eastern League title in the grandstands. Now they’d like to win it on the field.
Richmond will host the Erie SeaWolves on Thursday, Sept. 22, at The Diamond in the first round of the EL playoffs.
The first game of the best-of-three series was Tuesday in Erie. Erie is the AA affiliate of the Detroit Tigers.
Richmond, a San Francisco Giants feeder, qualified for the postseason by winning the EL’s first half crown. The Squirrels finished 66-71.
At the turnstiles, Richmond drew 406,560 fans, an average of 6,160 per opening. That led the EL and is tops across all Double A teams.
