(Repost) 8 Baseball in Richmond/ John O’Connor

As we get closer to the MLB All-Star break, I am reposting episode 8 with John O’Connor who is a long time sports writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. ¬†He tells some great stories about Parker Field, the building of the Diamond, the Richmond Braves and the early days of the Flying Squirrels in RVA.

This episode also features 2 additional stories from other guests.

If you are looking for more history of base ball in Richmond, check out episode 27 with Scott Mayer or check out¬†episode 22 with¬†Paul DiPasquale talking about building Connecticut, AKA “The Indian from the Diamond”.
