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”.
