It'll never happen because it's too hard for with traffic to get to evening games. The NFL could work because there are only 8 games and they are mostly on weekends. I can't imagine a lot of people would want to drive from VA Beach or Suffolk to Norfolk on a weeknight. This is unfortunate but is probably reality.

What about the SF Giants AA team the Richmond Flying Squirrels? Is there any interest in the Giants because of this affilitation? Does the team draw a good crowd? Also, Giants manager Bruce Bochy is from Virginia, so that's another connection.

No one in HR cares about the Flying Squirrels as there is a AAA team here. This is coming from someone who moved here from Richmond.

Well...maybe I shoulda posted this in the Richmond sub-forum, but since this is a thread dedicated to MLB, I thought what the heck!

Not many people care about AA teams, even though some AA have great prospects that go directly to the majors.
